A new baby....

Hiya!

I'm really not getting the hang of blogging my cards at the mo. I think the phrase "bitten off more than I can chew" was made for me! I'm up to my eyeballs with cards and wedding preparations, allotment veg and my new secretary role while still trying to do all my usual Mom, girlfriend and "me" stuff...... As a result, I'm awake at.... oh dear, 2:20am, writing this post cos I can't sleep with all the things buzzing round my head.

Anyway, I made these cards last week and it's about time I showed you :-) They're just some quick simple ones following a sketch from Meljen's challenge (missed the deadline aaaages ago!) I thought as I was cutting my paper into triangles, I may aswell make 2 cards and keep one for my box. This is actually intended for a good pal of mine, Becky, who had little baby Lewis a couple of days ago. Congratulations, Becky!


The image, papers and sticky letters are all from the Me to You range....


Then I just added a few pearls, a star cut using a quickutz die and embossed with a crafts too embossing folder.....

A close-up of the image coloured with my promarkers.....


And the sentiment.....


Challenges:
Sarah Hurley - Colouring
Totally Gorjuss - All about boys

Right, I'm going to put the kettle on. Maybe ovaltine will help me sleep! Night, night!

Love 'n' hugs,
