a baby is a blessing

today i am showing a "baby" card i have made for my brother/sister~in~law, who are expecting their first new addition to the family very soon, (i jump every time the phone goes, i case it`s "the" call.) you may think strange colours for a baby card ~but thought i would choose the colours of the nursery ~ not your average nursery ~ my SIL has painted murals all over the walls~with trees and birds/cuddly animals ~ back in the USA that was her prefered work~ they are a house of artists. if you follow me on facebook, there is a link to my SIL allison, where you can see the pics.
anyway on to the card, i`ll stop my waffling now.

i have used the sketch over on ;~WHIFF OF JOY#78

STAMP SOMETHING ~ " celebrate something" ~links on my side bar

used dovecraft paper, whiff of joy (holding baby) and word stamp, nestabilities oval dies, stampin`up punch, elusive images butterfly, swirl and corner stamps, finished with pearls and glitter. same inside (below)

i am so delighted to show you an award from nicola ~thankyou so much it bring out the sunshine!

now for me to name my other blogging friends who bring me sunshine :~

DEBI, SUE, MONIKA, COOPS, RIET, DEBBY4000, MACPURP, ANNIE, ALLISON, MINA, RHONDA, CHRISSY, ANESHA, JOEY, SCRAPMUMUR, SCRAPPYJAN ~wish i could write everyones name down, as i have made some lovely friends and have all kept me going this last year.~ THANKYOU!
