New baby

Strange morning - at 8.45 my husband said “I thought you were working” - “No, said I,  got the day off and planning to paint sew and craft all day” “It says on the calendar that you're working all day”, he replied at which point I checked and saw that he was right - 10 panicked minutes later I flew out of the door and arrived at work to be told I wasn't expected today at all! However the boss had phoned in sick and could I work the afternoon? So I'm home now but rushing around and trying to fit in as much as I had planned as possible before heading back to work at 12.30 :o)

A friend asked me for a new baby card this week so I looked out one of my favourite Meljens digi stamps to make this one for her. I've coloured the image with Promarkers and added a bit of dimension with Glossy Accents and some sparkle with Stickles. The lovely paper is Cloisonne by GCD Studios and I die cut the name using a Sizzix die. The ribbon and lace along with the baker's twine are from my stash and the teddy charm has been in my findings box for ever!
