New...................Baby Girl

Good afternoon to you all in the land of blog
Happy New Year to you all, Hope you had a great time

I know I did, so after clearing the decks of Christmas Trimmings and giving the house a quick spring clean, and now getting to grips with the accumulated wash loads of which the ironing pile will be back to it's normal size, but whilst waiting for the wash loads to go through I just had to play in my Beach Hut.  

Today I opted to play with one of my favourite little critter images from House Mouse, and here is my creation
I made a Baby Girl card.

Base layer and contrast here is a light purple with Prima papers to compliment.  The flowers are all airbrushed in G83 and were originally white and from Wild Orchid.  The pearls are from the Hobby House, the ribbon is Papermania Capsule Collection Heather from a local store.  The tag has been airbrushed along with the image plate. The sentiment on the image plate is My Sentiments Exactly. The little charm from my stash.

Here are some close ups
The image coloured in Copics and just a snippet of the little cross charm.

The flowers

The little tag with some pins given to me by a local crafting buddy Sam (thank you hun)

I would like to thank all my wonderful visitors for their wonderful comments, which allows me to hop over to visit you in return.

Just to mention I am going shopping on Saturday to my local craft shop, Grimsby Crafts, Lynn is having a sale so I am going to get my next candy, so sorry for the delay in this, but had so much on over the Party season.
