A Cuddle at last

Well I finally got to cuddle my new grandson Jozef after waiying nearly a week until Ellie was over the chicken pox,what timing.Well what can I tell you he is gorgeous!!!and in all the excitement I forgot to take the camera as I can't upload pics from my phone-well I can but once on the laptop they just vanish lol.Will try and upload one from facebook taken when he was a day old with his Mum Diane(DIL)still in hospital.Mind you the good mood didn't last as when we got home washer(only 9mths old)emptied all over kitchen floor and now does not work!!!
The image on my card is a Mo's Digital freebie-"Bring on Summer"coloured with promarkers,and used Graphic 45 papers Place in Time and used July page and trust me these are red and blue even though the pic makes the red look orange!!
