|Every Cloud has a Silver Lining|
Speaking of "light at the end of the tunnel" - Thursday isn't always a special day, but can't we make it special just this once? Truly it was a special week when my coworker found out that his wife was pregnant with TWINS after a long battle.
Hopefully shedding light on a tuly momentous occassion - I've made a card to match. This card truly IS shiney - with all the glitterings of the future!

|Robot Signals/Heart Beats|
Deep Stash MineI've dug deep - very deep - into my stash for this card. I bought a cute stack of 12x12 papers when I was fairly new to scrapbooking and cardmaking (2 years ago) because it featured robots. I was CRAZY about robots for a wee while (I still kind of am) and wanted this paper stash.
The background paper was cut to fit the front of the card. It was then run through the sewing machine to make the "heart EKG" lines that are behind the two robots. The heartbeat lines also kind of look like wifi/robot signals, tieing back into the robot theme the card front is displaying.
|Sun Smiling Down|
Robots are from the matching paper line by Grace Taylor "Hopscotch" glitter die cuts. I had everything to match this line - it's a shame I didn't use it sooner! Banner is popped up on pop dots from the matching Grand Adhesions.
A Whole New World
|Inside the card|
The inside features more glitter die cuts from the same "Hopscotch" line by Grace Taylor. I'm so glad I held onto this collection instead of letting it go (which I was tempted to) because it just fits this ocassion perfectly.
Sentiment is by Paper Trey Ink. This "cloud" seems to have lifted for the couple and I hope they enjoy their "silver lining" and the possibilities that life has to offer!
