Welcome baby

School breaks up tomorrow! I will be on holiday for a whole month, can't wait
My 4 year old granddaughter came home on Tuesday with very strict instructions. Her teacher is having a little baby boy during the holidays and she thinks that I should make her some 'cupcake socks'. If you have grandchildren you will know that instructions like that can not be ignored. So off I went, bought the socks and made the cupcakes.

You can't give somebody socks but no shoes, so we 'had' to buy the cutest little blue shoes too. I made a box to put them in. Paper is Bazzil and Scrapsheets. The stamped image is from Uppikit and it was coloured with my Copics.

Of course, no gift is complete without a card. So Hannah chose the image that had to go on top. Again one from Uppikit, coloured with Copics. The Flower and brad is from Enmarc and the ribbon from my local haberdashery store.

Here is the complete set. Hannah thinks her ouma is the coolest. Isn't it amazing that our grandchildren think we are super heroes that can do anything they ask? I dread the day I can not deliver.


  1. Oh are so clever! What a beautiful gift. You are so sweet.

  3. How cute are those cupcake socks? I think Gran's remain superhero's to their grandkids Tertia, no matter what our offerings, but I don't think you have any worries when you can make stuff like that!

    I got an email from Sam a couple of days ago and she was getting over her oink flu, so I think she is fine, busy but fine!! :)

  4. Tertia, these are just gorgeous ... special gran you are !!!
