Welcome to the world Isla and a cycling hedgehog!

Good Evening my loves

I've not had chance to get into my craft room for the last couple of days because my best friend Davina had her first baby- a gorgeous little girl called Isla! Me and OH visited her in hospital first as she had some complications after the birth (Davina not Isla) and today we saw her at home. This is me getting my first cuddle at the hospital:

She's so beautiful and perfect and has made me completely broody!

So on to today's card:

I used one of the new Penny Black stamps and coloured it with Promarkers. The papers are from Forever Friends and I've distressed all the edges. The punches are from x-cut and woodware, the ribbon and gems are Papermania.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Truly Scrumptious - Lilac, Lemon & Cream
I Love Promarkers - Use 3 Papers
Divas by Design - Distressing
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin - Anything Goes

It's my day off tomorrow and I have no intention of leaving the house. I'm treating myself to a day of crafting! 
I'll see you then

  5. Hi Berni your friends new baby is beautiful, at least you can hand her back after the cuddle and when she cries and you don't have to wake up in the middle of the night to feed and change her LOL. Thank goodness I'm passed that now my boys are 12 and 10. I love your card, such pretty colours mauve is one of my favourite colours and a wonderful image. I love your distressing and it always looks better on other peoples cards rather than my own. Great job and thanks for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week and good luck.
