BG60: Baby Card

Hi there. Been a while since I have been able to post.
Mom mom is going on day 8 in the hospital (5 in ICU) after contracting meningitis.  
No idea where she got it and rather rare but she battled and is slowly recovering.
She will probably go to a rehab facility tomorrow or Friday 
and be on antibiotics for about 2 more weeks.

So with a minute to breathe I am finally trying to get the boys back on schedule. 
I went through my files to look for some cards I had not shared and 
found a baby card I made for church.

Bit of paper piecing on the horse:

I used Basic Grey's "Oliver" 6x6 pad and the 
rocking horse is from Lawn Fawn's "Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum" set.

I'm entering this in the Basic Grey Challenge #60: Something New

Always fun to celebrate a new baby.  
At mom's hospital they play a short lullaby on the intercoms each time a baby is born.  
Very sweet and a nice way to share a little joy among all the staff and patients. 

I have been trying to look at blogs on my iphone but gave up, just too hard to see so my apologies for not being out and about commenting.  

Take care,

Stamps: SU sentiment, LF
Paper: BG
Other: Spellbinders Lacey Circles, pencils

You have a lot on your plate to deal with. I hope your mum will be recovered soon. Good to hear she is on the mend but still has a long way to go.
And take care of yourself too. These are tough times..

Love the baby card ( oops almost forgotten...)
