New baby Card

Hello all.

I've just returned back from the most amazing holiday in Florida where we went to all the usual tourist attractions - I think I was more excited than Harrison!  It was to celebrate my 40th birthday which is looming next Thursday.  I dressed in Minnie mouse ears at Disney as well as Griffindor hats for the trip to universal, I couldn’t help getting into the magic of it all!!

 As for most of you, once the jet lag had worn off, my first evening was spent in my craft room…. I do miss it when I’m away!

 In this short time, I have made two very special cards, for some very special people.  The first one tonight is for an impending birth of a boy to my good friend Sarah.  She’s due any day so to prevent me having to rush one, I’ve made it in advance (I do hope the scan got the right sex!) The second I’ll post tomorrow.

 I delved into my ever expanding Lili of the Valley stamps for this little one called baby with teddy.

He was stamped with stazon ink and painted with distress inks.  The gingham and patterned papers are from a website now sadly closed called pink petticoat, all mounted onto craft card with flowers and lace from my stash.

The leaves are a Sue Wilson Die set coloured with pastel green promarkers for ease.  The sentiment is a ‘Simon says Stamp’ one that I just love!

The whole thing was mounted onto kraft card, with a tonic header die for interest behind.

Inside the sentiment is from Cuddly buddly.
