New Baby Card - It's Taken a While!

Hello Folks

It's taken me ages to finish the card I'm going to show you today - I started it about a fortnight ago, and just could not manage to motivate myself enough to finish it. But, today my Mum was planning to visit my cousin who had a baby, so I really had to finish the card for her to take with her.

I've made an easel card using the Sleeping Infant digi from Digi Doodle Shop, which I've coloured with Promarkers. The dark pink paper is Kay & Co, and I'm not sure where the pale pink papers were from.

I made the flowers out of a strip of organza fabric and just added a pearl brad to each one. The butterfly is a punch I've recently purchased - Woodware I think! Why is it that, when you see other people using something it looks really good but then when you try it, it doesn't look so good??!!

I decorated the back panels of the card, and slotted in a tag with a verse on it - and I've written on the reverse of it.

The Sshhhhh Baby Sleeping is a freebie digi from Sentiments 4 You, and I created the other sentiment on the computer.

I'm going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Stampin for the Weekend - Tickled Pink
Delightful Challenges - Girlie Girl
One Stop Craft Challenge - Girlie
Fab n Funky Challenges - Bingo - I chose Flowers, Sentiment and Die Cuts
Ellephantastic - Here Come the Girls

Well, I must tell you something - this morning, I realised Eleri hadn't got any clean underwear (OK, knickers actually!), but I managed to find a pair in the back of her drawer - whew!! So I had a conversation with myself at work today - Should I put a load of washing in the machine when I get home from work, or should I go out and buy a new pack of knickers???? Well, come on be honest, what would you have done??? LOL! What do you think I did?

Well, I was good and I've done a load of washing LOL! Sometimes I do wonder why my husband married me - I don't think I've turned into the best housewife! ha! ha!

Must go now, I'm hogging the computer and the TV - I can feel the tension from across the room LOL!

See you soon.

Love, Andrea xx
