A simple baby card


Woo hoo, I feel better :o)  Thank you for all your get well wishes, and for putting up with all my moaning.  I just need to get a bit more of the mojo and motivation back now!

I'm determined to use more of my unused stash this year... all those stamps, papers, and other poor unloved things that have never even been out of the packet, let alone made it onto a card.. well, they're starting to make me feel very guilty.  So I've made a simple card using a sizzix embossing folder (taken out of the packaging for this card, although I've had it for about a year!), another of those 'must have' purchases obviously.  I've embossed the pram onto linen card and just added some blue stickles to the little heart.  The papers are digi ones from Pink Petticoat, again printed onto linen card, computer generated sentiment cut out with my Stampin' Up word window punch.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

It may be simple, but it sure is stunning! Gorgeous - I think I have this embossing folder too - in fact I have loads of them which are / were all must haves and hardly been used, so must follow suit and get them out! Hugs, Claire x PS. Glad you are feeling better :O)
