Aaaaaaawwww! Isn't she GORGEOUS! I'm not lucky enough to own any House Mouse Stamps (yet!) .....although I own 100's of others! ;) This little beauty was sent to me as a RAK and I'm embarrassed to say I can't remember who sent it! (If it was you - Thank You, and please could I have some more! lol!)
This card was made for the baby of a friend who was born very prem, it wasn't thought appropriate to send a card earlier, but as she is now getting stronger my friend felt more comfortable to order one. We decided against the 'usual' congratulatory card as she is still pretty poorly, and the verse inside is the 'Angel On My Shoulder' poem - I just love that verse - if you're not familiar with it and would like to see it give me a shout.
We thought we'd do the 'Congratulations' card for when she goes home from hospital, hopefully that wont be too long.
As the Mum of prem babies myself (my twins were born 7 weeks early - 19 years ago!!!) I feel confident that this card will 'say' just what mum needs to hear.
I've coloured the sweet image with my Promarkers, glitter glued the balloons, used more Gemstones card for the matting & layering (am I glad I bought 6 12x12 packs when they were on offer!)........
I'm not sure what the main paper is as it had detached itself from it's stack! The letters are Doodlebug 'All Mixed Up' rub ons - and I bought 3 packs of them when they were on offer too! The roses are of course WOC (what on earth did we do before Wild Orchid Crafts???), a couple of pins, 3 buttons, a die cut corner and length of ribbon and done!
Thanks for taking the time to visit - let me know you've been and I'll pop over to see you soon too :)
40 something (I keep forgetting!) mum of 3. Zoe 24 and twins Ben & Ceri 21. Wife to my best friend Rob and we have just become the proud Grandparents of our beautiful little 'star' Seren, born on Feb 6th 2013.
Adopted mum to 2 cats Millie & Archie and a Sheepdog called Brad.
I got hooked on card-making about 5 years ago - actually I think I've only ever gone a few days since without crafting
- and that was when we were in my fav place on Earth - New York!
Started my Blog in January 2009 and haven't stopped since! Thanks for visiting my little place and please leave a comment so I can call in on you too!
