And Naturally, She's Gorgeous

Avery Mae. Now, I might be biased, but this baby is mighty cute. The first time I saw her, I fell in love...again. Miss Avery looks quite like her big sister Lily. Big brother Drew isn't all that interested in her, after all, this little usurper took over "baby of the family" spot from him. Grant takes this all in stride; this is the third time for him to be big brother. I won't go overboard with photos, but thought you might like to see some, since this baby is nearly all I've posted about lately.


Check out those chubby cheeks (on Avery, not me!!lol) I believe that Drew, with Daddy's help took this photo. It's a little blurry, but you can see her face. She's definitely a keeper. Cries like a mouse squeek. 


Grandma took these three to dinner at the diner and it's become our tradition to stop here afterwards and take photos. Had a ball with the little ones. Precious babes. They make me laugh. They are constant reminders of what matters. Miracles every one of them. As all children should be!

When I went over to see this little family, I brought a present for the baby, and naturally, I had to whip up a card. Had one sitting here on my desk, but when I looked at it to tuck inside the present, it wasn't what I wanted anymore. So I had to make a new one. I used some new stamps from Newton's Nook. First of all, they're really cute/fun stamps, and then, the quality is utterly amazing! Initial inking was perfect. Clean, crisp images. I highly recommend these stamps. Seriously. And they have a challenge blog too. It's called Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge so be sure to check it out. Sweet sketch, and I just couldn't resist playing there with the card I made.

See what I mean about NN stamps?!!! It's a Bazzill white base and scalloped square. Scraps of pink and gingham. I stamped the images with SU black and fussy cut them, including the itsy bitsy teeny weenie heart. Used my Cameo to cut the hearts and scalloped square. Five and Dime store sequins. Katie really liked it, which makes me happy! We've got company from Phoenix, and I owe emails and comments to everyone, and will try to get to that this afternoon later when things are quiet around here for a while. In the meantime, since it's a beautiful Friday, go forth and do a happy dance.

Oh my, my eyes teared up looking at the photo of you and Miss Avery (the beautiful) together! She is precious, and those rosy cheeks are just perfect for kisses! Darling X 1,000,000! Your three older kidlets are also adorable. Apparently adorable, cute, sweet and, for the boys, handsome, runs in your family! Amazing Grandma = amazing grandkids. Simple math!! Your card is stunning...I see LOVE all over it. One Miss Avery is older, she will treasure it as much as, if not more than, her mom and dad do know. Enjoy the moments, Bev, enjoy! Hugs to you,

Oh your post makes my heart so happy! Avery is beautiful and the big brothers/sister are so so sweet! What an absolute blessing!

Geri said...

She is gorgeous! Sweet, little chubby cheeks, happy as every all snuggled up in a blanket! Love it when I see newborns swaddled in warmth rather than not.

Beautiful card - AMAZING fussy cutting! Heck, that heart would have been confetti had I tried this feat! Gingham and baby are the perfect match, add in some pretty pink bling and a whole lot of love from grandma's heart & hands, and a beautiful keepsake has been created!

Geri said...

You are truly blessed!

My goodness, Bev, she is just darling! What a sweet photo. Somehow knowing the back story behind it makes it all that more special. And your other grandchildren are equally as darling! :)

Your card to welcome sweet Avery is just delightful. Pretty, pink, sweet and happy!

The baby is cute - but the impish grins on the other three make that a classic photo!!! I agree about Newton's Nook - truly charming stamps!!

maria f. said...

Awwww... I'm happy dancing for you. She is just precious - as are those other three. You rock, granny.
One question. With a cardmaker in the family shouldn't they have named here Avery Elle?!?!?
