There was a recent new addition to our family at the beginning of the month when a beautiful 8lb baby girl Maisy was born to our nephew Stuart and his wife Tricia. Welcome to our world Maisy xxx
I wanted to test my new baby stamp from the LOTV Set 3 - Occasions collection as it was a fairly recent purchase and waiting to be inked up. She was coloured with Promarkers and her blankie was highlighted with Diamond Stickles for added sparkle. I then used Labels One Nestabilities to mount the image onto a card decorated with scrapbooking papers.
A few Stickles Cotton Candy dots provide some background interest over some soft pink chalk with simple embellishments of buttons and pink ribbon.
I made an easel card, (which are still holding their popularity in the craft world), and the layout follows LOTV's sketch Challenge 59.
Their young son Oliver now has the very important job of being 'Big Brother' to his wee sister and as such needs recognition, so I have made this card using the really cool Scooter Boy stamp from Sugar Nellie.
He is also coloured using Promarkers and I couldn't resist adding Diamond Stickles to his cool bike.
Selecting Challenge 36 Sketch for the layout design means I am able to enter the Sugar Bowl Do It Yourself Challenge 40.
Inside, some peel offs and stamps provide a greeting when matted onto coloured card and patterned paper.
Both cards and gifts are now winging their way to Aberdeen and we are all looking forward to meeting Maisy for the first time ... hopefully in the not too distant future.
