Sweet baby celebrations.....


Thank you so much for all your kind words and support to me in my last post. I am humbled by your thoughtful kindness you have all be such a comfort it made such a difference knowing that you care big hugs to you all.

I have made this card for a sweet friend and hugely talented fellow dt member Jacqui.

Jacqui has been blessed with a beautiful Granddaughter and I am so happy for her. The love we have for our children's children is immense words cannot describe and I really enjoyed making this card.

I have coloured my image with distress inks. I embossed the background with a nestie and distressed it with tattered rose.

I have used Tim's tool to distress the edges of my paper and distressed these with vintage photo.

The circle sentiment is sprayed with glimmer mist for some shimmer.

A big thank you to Rach for the sweet charm it is just so cute!

Well I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Thank you so much for looking and take care.
