Spots and Stripes With Love

Good morning.
Hope you've had a lovely week with some gorgeous sunshine.
And here's hoping it lasts for a little while longer - at least for the weekend anyway.

I'm so excited because my snuggalicious new Grand-daughter Ruby Mae is now at home - she had to stay in hospital for a little longer than we hoped because she had a little infection when she was born - but yesterday evening the proud parents got the go ahead to take her home :o)
Obviously that means I can go and visit any time now - so I will be heading down to Bristol just as soon as my DH gets back from karate.

It will be Ruby Mae's Daddy's 30th Birthday on Tuesday and today I would like to share the card I made for him:

Image: LOTV 'Toot Toot'
Colouring Medium: Copics
Design Papers: MME Sweetest Thing - Bluebell Collection
Alphas and Numbers: Memory Box
Buttons from stash
Sentiment: LOTV
Martha Stewart Cornice Edge Border Punch

Challenges I would like to enter:
