Welcom Baby Amelia

It seems the days are passing so quickly these days and I am sorry at not being able to post my cards as often as I would like.  I am getting orders for so many cards, wreaths etc that are pretty much the same style that I feel seeing them once is enough.  The ladies who ask for the cards do so mainly after seeing them for someone else and then they want one or two done.  Pretty boring but keeps me going.

The card today I made for my great niece to give to her friend on the birth of her baby girl.  Emma want something pink and blingy so this is what I came up with.

I started with an 8 x 8 card and then  white glittery paper which is not showing up very well in the photo. Some pink card embossed with M-bossibility Garden Lattice embossing folder studded with my usual pearls (boy can't wait to get to SECC Glasgow to replenish my stock of them).  The topper and sentiments are from a kit I bought when Kanban was in business, the ribbon was some I bought ages ago and did not want to use it but it is bought to use.  The babies name was made with some letters I had and it is placed on a border using an EK success punch. The box was made using the same materials with a couple of little embellishments.

I am hoping to get through to Glasgow on Thursday but depends on how my mum is, I tend not to plan too much ahead as things change quite quickly.  I have been saving my pennies but I will have to stop watching Create and Craft TV as I fell in love with the Tattered Lace offer last week and had to have it.  The parcel arrived today (Create and Craft have definitely upgraded their delivery process as it arrived within a couple of days) and I have been playing all night.  So much for doing my Christmas card backlog.  Oh well tomorrow is another day.

Hope you are all well and am looking forward to Sue Wilson's ( big reveal tomorrow.  I hope she has a spot on Create and Craft similar to Barbara Grey to demonstrate her amazing creations and give us loads of hints and tips.  Will just have to wait and see.

Take care out there.

I will be wearing a black and white checked jacket (stands out in a crowd) and would love to meet you. Don't worry if you can't be there I will be having lunch anyway.
