Joy Joy and Blog Candy Giveaway

The big day has finally arrived...we are grandparents!  Of course we are over-the-moon happy.  Mother and father and baby are doing very well.  The new grandparents are coping somehow (!)
Here's the card I made to celebrate the little one's arrival:
Too Beautiful to Use?
For this card, I used Webster's Pages.  Because the papers are so beautiful, initially I was afraid to cut them or to work with them. Instead, I was keeping my beautiful papers the same way I store my good tablecloth - wrapped up and placed on a high shelf until that special occasion. (I guess this could be called paper hoarding!)
My scrap friends at Scrap That!  advised me to  "Cut them!  You'll feel better. Some of the most beautiful embellishments you'll ever create will come from cutting them."
To all my lovely, creative friends - you were so right!  I do feel better, and now feel able to tackle more cards and using Webster's. 
Blog Candy Giveaway at Scrap That!
Heads up - there is a wonderful blog candy giveaway right now at Scrap That! blog. You could win a beautiful assortment of fabulous Prima papers and embellishments including Zva roses, Maya Road, and Glitz.  Just leave a comment on their blog here before August 19th. Couldn't be easier!

Meanwhile, we are getting used to the idea of being grandparents for the first time.
Have a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for stopping by!
