Baby Card for Emmett

Hello friends!
It's a happy time in my family!
Last week my nephew and niece got a phone call
very early in the morning.
A baby was born and they could adopt it.
This couple has gone through so much and wanted a baby so badly,
and now they have one.
I received a call from my brother that he is a grandfather
to a baby boy.
The little sweetheart is named
Emmett Timothy 
and he is a real beauty!
Our entire family is excited and I can't wait 
to meet my newest "great"
I now have 10 great nieces and nephews!
This is the card I made to welcome Emmett to
the family.
I stamped it with Versa Fine Black Onyx ink
and colored it with colored pencils.
I used odorless mineral spirits to blend
the colored pencil.
Gamsol is one brand name for 
the odorless mineral spirits,
what I use is a "generic" brand that a friend
shared with me.
I left the inside of the card blank so I can
write a message to our new 
little blessing.

Image is "Baby Animals" 
from Eureka Stamps,
I used an unmounted rubber stamp,
but this also comes in digital format.

Thanks for stopping by today,
hope to see you again soon!
