Congratulations on your new bundle!

Hello there!  Those that know me know I LOVE cuddling babies! I do have lots of opportunities with my Learn to Swim business, so my obsession is regularly fed!
My friends children are all having little ones too and so I am getting the chance to make a few baby cards.  
I wanted to make something a little different and a little non gender specific so I could have on hand without having to specifically make a card once the bubba was born.
I also wanted to try a different take on the stencil/paste fad at the moment.   Really happy with the results. Head on over to Scrapbook Boutique for all the details and products used.

too easy!

Here is my take on the Challenge!

I changed this card a dozen times!!  I decided to use the vellum overlay to soften the Shaded Lilac Distress and I love the effect.  I changed the bow a couple of time too and then I wanted a certain font for the sentiment, something more regal and then it just came together quickly! I really love it when that happens!  I hope you join in for this challenge, I can't wait to see what you create.
Thanks for popping in and now head on over to Linda's Blog, she has her gorgeous creation to show you.


Always there

A very old and close friend of mine has relocated to another state recently.  I shall miss her terribly as we have been friends for nearly 40 years.  We keep in contact regularly and I know she is only a phone call ( or plane ride) away.
I have been dying to use the Lawn Fawn Quinn's ABC, I love the outline alpha and I can see my getting absolute value for money with this little gem!! (see previous post) This bronzer is so gorgeous and I am not usually a fan of sprays....... I never seem to get a good spray as they always clog up or overspray.... But the Heidi Swapp are LUSCIOUS and spray easily and you don't have to flick the wand too hard to get the droplet effect. So yes happy with these and YES I will have to get EVERY COLOUR now :)
I am loving the thread trending at the moment and I am also a quilter ( lol) so of course I have every colour thread too..........
My thread looks a little like I was drunk when did it and I envy those crafters who can make a mess look organised!
Anyway you can head on over to Scrapbook Boutique  to read the instructions of recreating this LO and also purchase the goodies used!
