Baby Girl


Hi everyone, hope your week is getting off to a good start! Everyone is slowly getting better here so will probably be having another quiet day today but me and Leo have got some fun things planned later on in the week. I ordered him a cute elmo backpack and elmo toy the other day as he has this large tickle me elmo toy which he loves and he tries to carry him about but he's quite heavy so i think he'll love these newies, am hoping they arrive today or tomorrow-along with my bloomin Magnolia summer kit! I'll have to show you a pic of Leo with his new rucksack on, I think he'll look super cute!

Anyways...I have a card to tell ya about! I've made this card as a while back I mentioned that quite a few of my friends are preggers right now so am trying to get a few baby cards ready. It's such an exciting and special time when a new baby is born-I think these Elisabeth Bell images from whiff of joy convey the tenderness so perfectly. The challenge at Whiff of Joy this week is to use piercing on your creations so I've pierced around the nesties frame and the sentiment which I think is just perfect for baby cards. I've also followed the sketch at Stamp Something by Denise which is another fab one and really versatile too iykwim.

Stuff: Whiff of Joy stamp coloured with promarkers, nesties, cuttlebug, buttons and lace from stash, prima flowers, MME wild asparagus papers, 7gypsies paper, martha stewart doily lace punch, raffia, distress inks (antique linen and vintage photo), hero arts sentiment

Thanks for stopping by today and any comments you might leave-they make my day!
