My daughter and her husband are expecting a new addition in February and she read somewhere that the transition of their daughter to a Big Sister would be easier if Little Brother gave her a little gift from him so that she won't feel so left out when more of the attention from her is transferred to him. Well my assignment was to come up with a card for that occasion. So I worked on that this week to get it done in time to send it along with another daughter who will be stopping in on her way to the expectant family's home.
I decided I wanted to make a bridge card and although in reality it was quite easy to do I of course, had to make it a lot more complicated. My card got done but it ended up being a lot of patching along the way. LOL I got the idea for the bridge card from Karen Hasheck's You Tube video. Hopefully, the next time I try it I will know what I am doing a lot better.
I computer generated the sentiments but the stamp images are from Gina K. Designs. And, the pattern paper is some I bought years ago when a stamp store went out of business and I thought it sort of looked like a snowy day. I have no idea who made it. I colored the little girl with the colors of my granddaughter's coat and hat so that she would right away think it was her. Excuse the poor coloring though as my hands were hurting and therefore I did not do as great of a job. Old Art Ritis was bugging me.
At any rate my daughter was very pleased with the card as I sent her a photo to get it approved. She had not expected anything so fun. And, it is so cool that it folds together and will fit flat in an envelope too.

Also while I am here I will remind you that in a few days the 2017 Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop will be going on. So if you want to join in on the fun, make a few coffee, tea or hot cocoa themed designs using winter images. Just check out the date information on my side bar. I know I am working on a few things for it. And there are lots of fantastic prizes being given too. When I show my first project I will include the blog site so you can read all the rules and more information.
