Welcome to the world



Oh I love making baby cards just as much as wedding cards, what does that say about me I wonder lol. For this card I embossed some pink paper. I cut a border off a 12x12 baby sheet, no name. Punched a border using fiskars. I got a new flower and scroll from Marianne Dies, didn't link the ribbon through the flower though as i didn't realise till later than you could lol. I added pearls to the scrolls. The cards is finished with sticky lace, ribbon and a spotty brad in the flower. The image is Pink Gem coloured with watercolour pencils. I am entering this into these challenges:

1. Practical Scrappers - embossing

2. One Stop Crafts - monochromatic

3. Stamp Something - recipe (1 image, 1 dpaper, 1 ribbon)

4. Totally Papercrafts - pearls and swirls

5. Friday Sketchers - followed this lovely sketch

I received these lovely flowers for my Guardian Angel (thats her new nickname) Keryn, these are my kinda flowers, nice to look at, no mess and as I don't have the sense of smell I don't need it with these lol.

As I have been a right busy bee recently and have lots of lovely friends wondering where I have been I would like to pass this with love to you all. Your sweet comments and emails let me know just how great bloggy friends really are. Hugs

Hello you! I love your cards, the wedding one is so special with all of that white and I love your new dies. I have to fess up as they are on my purchase list for this week too so its lovely to see ratios!

Aah, ever the sentimentalist Pinky, wedding cards followed by baby cards! And I dont blame you, they are the nicest of the bunch to make arent they as they each hold such optimism and happiness!

I havent got a sense of smell either plus, we dont get any gunk stained vases this way! tee hee!
