Welcome Little One

Evening Folks
Well, first full week back at work this week and it seems to have flown by.  Still, better that way than dragging along.  Such a shame that the weekend will fly by just as quickly no doubt lol.
Was hoping to get some gardening done this weekend but the forecast is for rain again tomorrow.  What a surprise!!  Oh well, will have to do some crafting instead.

Tonight's card share is a special request from my daughters.  One of their friends is expecting her first bundle of joy any day now.  As you can probably tell she is having a little boy.


I used this adorable little image that I purchased from Pollycraft.  I bought it as part of the mega bundle when they were closing down.  I coloured the image in promarkers and added some glamour dust to the stars.  This was then matted onto some yellow pearlescent card.  The papers were from my stash box and they were matted onto the same yellow pearlescent card.  I added some lace and a little ribbon strip with the words 'It's a boy' along the centre.  All of the flowers used were part of some candy that I won from Sassy.  Thank you Sassy, they are gorgeous.  I spritzed the flowers with some glimmer mist and added a little sprinkle of glitter.  The finishing touches were a silver star, a heart button, a teddy button and a tiny hand button.

Here is a picture of the inside which I also decorated.


Excuse the quality of the photos but the weather has been so glum today and just could not seem to get the lighting right.
