I know you've already gotten tons of support on this, but I thought I'd share as well. I became a mommy just before I turned 17. I wan't due until May, so I finished my junior year of high school. Then I went to summer school and was able to graduate EARLY! What a blessing that was. My m-i-l insisted she be called nana as well. I've been married to my sons father for almost 7 years. My son is almost 9 and is in gifted classes at school- so things turn out the way they are supposed to most of the time. Good luck to you entire family. I wish you all the best.


Wonderful card! I love it!


Wonderful card! I love it!


Ok so I cracked and bought it... I guess I just needed and excuse. Thanks for giving me one!!!



HI Kendra,
Fabulous card! I love that stamp set. I became a mommy at a young age and my mom insisted she be called "nana" not Grandma, as she was a young one too! It's been 10 years since I broke the news to her that I would be having a baby instead of going away to college, getting married first, etc. etc. And you know what? The Lord COMPLETELY knew what he was doing. My Mom's support was invaluable to me at that time in my life, and she has never not been there for me! As a matter of fact, we have become so much closer because I was a young mother. Just trust in Him, and this will be a joyous time for your whole family. Congratulations to you and your family on this new little blessing that is coming your way.

My brother in law had his daughter Candice when he was 16 and he and his girlfriend took to the role very seriously and finished school knowing that it would give them the best opportunities to support their daughter by having a better paying job with that education. He is the first to tell you it was hard but if he could do it any differently he wouldn't. It was absolutely unexpected but ending up directing his life in a positive way. He is now in his early 30's with an 18 year old daughter who herself is graduating highschool with high marks and looking at a career in the medical field. She is the first to say that the examples her young parents set out for her made her realize how important education is and she loves them so much for all the sacrificies and hard work they did to raise her as best as they could. Her mother's parents played a huge role in supporting the young couple and their child and it made such a big difference.

We are all blessed to have Candice in our life- she is an incredible young woman and it's amazing to look back at what at first seemed like such a rough situation and have it turn out so well.

I just wanted to share this story in light of your news. Your daughter is so blessed to have such a loving and supportive mom, it will make all the difference.


What a stunner of a card! You like layers?? What?? I was unaware of that fact...bahaahahaa!

It's all been said but I swear, years down the road and you will wonder how you ever lived without that precious little child! You couldn't imagine it....honestly!

Nanas ROCK!!! mwah!! xoxoxo

Carolyn King

AWESOME card girl! those colors and that bow is perfection!

You are an amazing person---congrats to you and your dd--I am so happy that the baby is looking good. I love your wonderful outlook on things and in a few years you both will wonder how you ever lived without this precious child.

Hugs to you and dd!

Your daughter is lucky to have you! Knowing that this is bringing you and your daughter so close is going to be something you'll both always treasure, and that new little baby will have you wrapped around its finger in no time! We all KNOW you're going to be one hot Nana!! :-) Hugs to you, my dear....keep smilin' that gorgeous, show-stopping smile of yours. Love ya'----Pam (4Hounds)


This is just gorgeous!!! Good luck to you and your daughter, I am sure it will all work out in the end!!

Michelle (milwaukeemommy)

Wow, Kendra, your life sure has been eventful in the last year!! You sound like a great, supportive mom ~ your daughter is very lucky to have you! Congratulations to both of you!


Kendra, you make me want to rush over there and buy this set. I will keep you all in my prayers. Motherhood is tough at any age and any stage. God never gives us more than we can handle, keep your chin up.

Terry Molineux

Wow! Two Wows.....the card is great and so is your news. Congrats you are handling better than I would that's for sure...but being a supportive mother is the best thing...she needs you in this important time....they are both in my prayers as well as you!!

Lisa Henke

I always love your stuff, Kendra. this card is fabulous! Hugs to you and your family as you work through this unexpected news! Just remember, babies are such blessings!


Congrats on being a Nana. My mom is Nana to my girls. Nana's have a special place in grandchildren's hearts! Now you just need the new Women's of Life addition from's on my wishlist too!

Beautiful card. I love the PTI Berry Sorbet as well. Thanks for sharing a card with us. So cool, I love dimensions too, gotta have layers upon layers.
Good luck with your daughter and the adjustment to Nana. My Mother-in-law had a hard time with it as well and she is older and also my boys Nana.
My mom was a young grandmother as well, not mine, but she wouldn't change it for the world, and I know you won't either. I am sure you and your daughter are going to do great.


Okay, that card is gorgeous! Makes me want to dust off mine too!! And congratulations! Being supportive is the best thing you can be right now...your daughter and her child are very lucky to have you there for them. And after the shock comes all the good stuff! Best wishes to everyone!


I was a first time mom as a senior in high school so please e-mail me if you would like. It sounds like you are handling it well so congratulations on a job well done on this first step in this journey! Hugs to you and your daughter! Love this card!

christina fischer

What a fantastic card!!! You have an amazing way with layers and ribbon!!

I'll keep you, your daughter, and that little one in my prayers -- it may be a challenging road ahead, but it will be filled with many blessings, too! Hugs!

Denise (Paper Ponderings)

I think congratulations are in order. It sounds like you've already gotten over the shock and a bit of disappointment and now you're on to being excited and making plans. Oh, and your card is absolutely adorable.


Your card is lovely and they are right you are never given more that you can handle, heck maybe you will be Nana to a future president, how wonderful would that be, ya never know. Sure that it will all work out.

Carole (TruCarMa)

Kendra -- this is gorgeous! I know what you're going through has been tough and something all parents fear, but you have a wonderful attitude and I know you'll make the coolest Nana! : ) This new little person might just be the great love of your life.
