Baby Grace's 1st Birthday

Hello, here is a little card I made for one of my great nieces who is shortly to celebrate her 1st birthday.  Ive used a gorgeous little image from Mo, I think she captures the little ones so perfectly, altho I think the little one above is a bit older than 1, I still adore her and thought she would be ideal for the card.  I used my new Funky Papercraft Factory CD for the coloured dotty paper, the washed out paper is pink petticoat and the little swatch of patterned pink is from a freebie pad with a card magazine recently.

Valentine's didn't actually happen here after all, come the time we were due to get ready Steve fell quite poorly and went to bed 'just for a quick lie down - I'll be fine in 15mins'  less than 5 mins later the snoring filled the house!!  lol  I was in the candlelit bath with a flute of pink fizz that he'd sorted so I just decided it would be a PJ evening instead!  He got me flowers yesterday though, reduced from the 14th!!  Oh I do hate him working his shifts!!  He got a lovely new watch, which he hasn't taken off yet! lol

Thanks for dropping by!

Hi Keryn

What a beautiful card - such a cute image.

I see you have had your sewing machine in action!!! I love stitching on cards. Recently I have crafted more on the dining room table than in my little craft room so haven't stitched as much as I would like. Must make amends - you have inspired me. Thanks for that!

Pleased to see that you have the new Funky Hand CD - isn't it great!!!

Love Jules xx

You've made such a wonderful card with Mo's adorable image Keryn!
Those papers are just perfect with this little sweetie and your colouring is superb.

You've been busy too since I last visited!! I love this card, the image is so cute and I really like the way you've put the colours together- I really like that paper and the cute little buttons! Sorry Val's Day wasn't as you'd hoped, still some fizz and a bath sounds very relaxing, at least you got to pamper yourself a bit! x
