Baby's 1st Christmas.

Hi everyone, it seems like ages since I posted....but it was just Friday! I made this card today for Oliver for his first Christmas. This is such a cute image from Janet at Pink Gem Designs. She has some gorgeous designs for Christmas and of course other occasions too. I am hoping to enter it in a couple of challenges:-

A Spoon Full of Sugar :- Baby's 1st Christmas.
Charisma Cardz :- Sketch.
Whimsy Challenge :- Christmas.
Pollycraft :- Anything Christmas.

Materials used:- Promarkers, Martha Stewart punch for snowflake. Finished with Card Candy from Craftwork Cards coloured with Promarker to match the image. Stickles added to image for a bit of sparkle. The DP is the gorgeous MME Colourful Christmas. I like it so much that I have bought some more!

Hope you like.

Today is Poppy's second birthday and Oliver is two weeks old already. We saw them at the weekend which was lovely. Grampa built a small part of Poppy's new outdoor play park LOL!! Some people might buy their little one a swing or a chute or whatever. My son-in-law has gone for the works. I think it might take Grampa quite a while to build the swing, chute, pirate boat etc, etc. The garage was full of long pieces of wood, pieces of metal, packets of screws and so on. I think it might have been better if he had had some help but son-in-law was at work. And to crown it all the weather was really nasty yesterday. Funny how Friday and today were both beautiful days but Saturday and Sunday were wet and miserable - typical.

Now I am off to play with some new goodies. I "had" to go into Stampaholics in Perth on Saturday and then I "had" to buy some new goodies. To crown it all when I got home last night there were two parcels waiting for me. One from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie and one from Craftwork Cards. So I have lots of nice new stash to play with.

Hope to see you tomorrow with a new card.

    Darran built Lucy a huge decked area at our other house, it would have been cheaper to have bought ready made as we moved house and it had to be left behind!! Have you been over to Anyone for Anya?? :D
