Another new born card

Good afternoon ladies, hope we are all well today. Boy is it cold and we have a light covering of snow.  My dogs just love the cold conditions and shovelling the snow with their noses, not like me, I am a sunshine girl.

WOW I never believed I would have so many followers, it gives me a "feel good" feeling knowing so many people warrant my cards a look and then to comment on them, and the comments are so encouraging it makes me feel I can make worthwhile cards.  
I have a lovely lady in the village who just adores my style of card and even sends them to Italy to her family and friends and my sister is forever showing my cards to her friends so I have a steady flow of customers.  Better get my finger out soon as my stocks are very low.  I like to keep examples for people to see and then I have an idea of what type of card they are after and customise it as necessary.

Here is my second "New Born Girl" card.

8 X 8 White card
Pink card from stash embossed with
Spellbinders M-Bossibilities Garden Lattice Folder
Baby Onsey cut with Cricut Mini
Onsey paper from Forever Friends New Arrival paper pad
Ribbon, sentiments and pearls from stash
I feel this Onsey could have been trimmed with lace to give it a softer look, we live and learn, too late now.
I must be lucky on this blogger as I have won a marvellous give away from Kath and Buddy at  she was having a tidy up and offered some different give aways and I was lucky enough to be drawn for the Martha Stewart Punches and Nit Wit papers and some other items.  The Blog Candy I received from Sue at Plantet Susie was amazing and now I cannot wait to play with the punches Kath will be sending in her parcel.  How Lucky am I?
Earlier this month I said I had a go at making the Origami Boxes and said I would post them but I feel I can do better and will make more and decorate them properly and then they will be worthy to be posted.  I don't want to lower the wonderful standards set by you all.  I am in awe sometimes when I see the beautiful cards made and posted.
That's it for tonight ladies, hope you are all well and safe.
Take care and wrap up warm.
