New Baby

Hello

I'm sure you have heard the excuse 'the dog ate my homework'?  Well, my excuse is that we got an Apple TV for Christmas and as a result, the 'gremlins' ate all of our peak Internet quota for the rest of the month.  I've been relegated to basic text emails and getting up at 6am to download my mail for the last 20 days and it has been agony!  How did we ever do without broadband Internet? Needless to say, the new quota starts today and there is lots to catch up on.

A lovely lady I know (who is my Podiatrist) is having a baby in the next 2 weeks, so I thought I would get organised and make a card for her. I found Jackie Topa's cute Side Step Dresser card.  Not knowing the sex of the baby, I wanted a unisex card and this is what I came up with.

I love Bazzill for these types of projects as it is very sturdy and I love the linen texture.  The main colour is Pool Party and pale lemon (Copic) with a touch of Island Indigo.  It has taken me a while to get into the new In Colours, but now I'm in love with Pool Party. Here are the rest of the details.

Surprisingly, my husband thought it was cute, but definitely for a boy. Back to the drawing board to make one for a girl and what better excuse (as if I need one!) to go with one of my favourite colour combos - pink and brown.  This is what I came up with.

I 'fluffed' around for way too long with the bear, but I'm quite happy with it in the end, although I'm concerned it is a little bit dark.  I recut the oval punch outs for the arms and legs to get the slimmer proportions. The sparkly knobs on the drawers are silver Glimmer brads, coloured with a Copic marker as are the tiny rhinestones on the bear's shirt.  I love that you can colour a lot of things to match with Copics. Here are the rest of the details.
