A Friends New Baby

Good Morning All,
 
Another gorgeous sunny morning. I don't know if it's very warm, as I haven't stepped outside yet. I hope to venture out into the garden today and try and cut down the dead bits of my plants, that should have been cut down at the end of the autumn.
 
My good friend Sue helped me do my first craft market yesterday. I wouldn't have been able to do it without her. This is just a quick post so will report on that more on my next post.
 
This card is for my friend's daughter's first baby. I did her and her bridesmaids hair, for her wedding 3 years ago. Her brother has 2 boys, so her mum was thrilled to get her first Grand-daughter.
 
The pictures are in the wrong order. However, the stamp I used is from Lili Of The Valley and the sentiment stamp comes with it too.
 
I added a little rocking horse charm to the bow, which I found in my bits box. The flowers are from my stash. I think they came from Hobby Craft.
 
 
 
The image I coloured with Distress Inks and also on the edges of the papers. The backing papers are from Dovecrart Back to Basics paper stack.
 
 
That's all for today. After my market yesterday, my knee is not very happy sitting at my desk for long. I think it's time for an ice pack on it!
 
Thanks for visiting my blog. I love to read all your lovely comments. Enjoy the sunshine today.
 
Hugs,
Carol S.xx
