Sweet Baby

Hi folks,

Hope everyone is staying safe and warm and the snow isn't causing you too much trouble. We've had quite a covering, but apart from the minor roads, everything seems OK.  It's been perfect weather for staying in and I had a lovely 'play' day yesterday, trying out a few new goodies - when I say new, some of them were bought in October at GNP, but haven't been used - shame on me!
Before I got messy I needed to make a New Baby card.  I used 2 sizes of Nestabilities Romantic Rectangles in Pearlised card and stamped my old but well loved PSX stamp.  I cut a 2nd large rectangle, scored about 3/4" down and glued the two tops together, making the card. Lightly coloured with Distress markers and Glamour Dust for the moon. The two larger flowers are TH Tattered Floral and the rose was tinted with inks.

I am entering this in:
  Allsorts - Flower Power
  Joanna Sheen - New Beginnings
  Stamp your Life - New Beginnings

Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend - I'm going to try to make something with yesterdays 'pieces'

Avril xx

One more thing - I love the mostly white design with just a faint hue of color. So pretty!

This is lovely Avril, I used to have that stamp, maybe I still do somewhere, also you have used the dreaded rectangles that broke my cuttlebug! I haven't tried them on the bigshot yet. I bet it looks beautiful with the pearlised card
