While waiting for our bundle of joy....

Happy sunday everyone!!

A new card to share with you today... yes, I am waiting for a new bundle of joy in our family - my nephew's first baby to be exact! and as you can imagine, I am excited!

So I wanted to be prepared for the occasion - so baby D's card is all-ready!! :)

This time I did an easel card, wanted it to be CAS - but I'm too much in love with lace, embellies etc!!





 The image I used is one of my favourite from Elisabeth Bell's  designs. It was a Bell's and Whistles in my time as DT. If anyone is interested, I'll check with her if it's still in rubber somewhere.

Copics used for colouring:

Hair: E35, E31, E29, E25, YR23, YR21
Skin: E95, E35, E21, E11, E00, E000, R32 (lips)
Top and socks: black, B87, B95, B91, B0000
Background: B91, B0000, BG10
Green Blanket: G99, G82, G21, G0000




Papers used are single doube sided from our LSC. 



The sentiment is from Stampin'up. I love it for baby cards, or for small kids :)



and finally, isn't that small giraffe cute?? I fell in love with it. I really enjoyed doing this card, with a lot of anticipation for this baby to arrive.  Each kid is as the charm highlights: a life's Blessing!



Have a happy Sunday.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge with Dots and Spots

  11. Aww, such a precious image and design for this Easel Card! We are so blessed for your participation in our last Challenge and would love for you to join us again in our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with this Scripture inspiration from Colossians 2:6-7 which tells us, "So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." Have a blessed week.

    1. Awwww thank you Jo-Ann for such a sweet comment! I would really like to participate in more challenges, but time is not my friend when it comes to these things.. and I really put so much into each creation that sometimes it takes me almost a week (an hour here and two there) to finsh a project :)
