New Baby Girl

Good morning to all my lovely friends and  followers and a special welcome this sunny morning to my latest follower Karrie welcome to my Blog I hope that you enjoy my posts and  continue to visit my Blog.
My card today is a New Baby Girl card I made for my friend Margaret she had a new Grandchild while I was away on holiday. Her name is Fearne. The stamp I've used is LOTV Cosy Pram I bought this ages ago when it was released and have never had the opportunity to use it so I knew straight away what baby stamp I was going to make the card with. I've also another first on the card while I was in Florida I bought this Tim Holtz bracket die something I've been after for ages so its had its first outing on this card. The Tim Holtz dies are so much cheaper than in England especially if you have a 40% off coupon !!


Card Recipe

6x6 blank card Craftwork Cards
Edge cut with Tim Holtz Bracket die
Stamp LOTV Cosy Pram painted with Derwent Inktense Pencils
Papers Pion Studio of Memories Rose and Ocean Roses PD1904 from Live and  Love Crafts
Die Marianne Circle, leaf , and flower
Sentiments LOTV for you circular sentiments and sentiment tags.
Lace and ribbon from my stash.
Pearl trim from a haberdashery shop in Durham market ages ago.
Wood teddy button from Whitby Crafts
Flowers Wild orchid Craft and Boyes Stores
Letters from a Pion cut out sheet Live and Love Crafts
Card edges inked with Tattered Rose Distress Ink

I decorated the inside of the card with the same papers and  put the verse onto a  die cut to match the outside. I don't often do this as I usually add an insert of either linen or hammered paper but I did like the results of this technique.
Well got nothing planned especially for the weekend but I do have some jobs in the house and garden to keep me busy. My son also sent me a parcel yesterday it contained the Roman Blind I made  a few years ago for their kitchen and They had already sent some new fabric. So can I just run them a new one up !! I'll need to put a couple of days aside and get my big sewing machine out. The one I use for my cards is a very small one I bought cheaply at John Lewis and it sits under the desk but I'll need my trusted Bernina machine for this project.
I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy some time to relax.  Hugs Carole x

Hi Carole, I'm sorry I'm so late commenting - I'm really behind (again!). This is such a gorgeous baby card! The image is adorable and your embellishments are as beautiful as ever - I especially love the cute little teddy button! The bracket edge looks perfect too. It's always a great feeling when you manage to get hold of something you've been after for a while - and it sounds like you got a bargain!
