A New Baby

Good morning,

Well, that's the first week back at school over, just another seven until the next break!  I actually felt nervous on Monday, after being off for a month - but everyone was pleased to see me and I coped pretty well.

Now, just before anyone gets any ideas - the title of my post doesn't relate to me! Lol. We have a brand new challenge starting today over at Fantasy Stampers and the new theme for the next two weeks is


Phew! Don't think I could cope with that right now (unless it was a new grandchild, of course!) Well, one can hope. Here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...

I used a 6 x 6" scalloped cream card base and layered it with kraft card and some blue paper from my stash. The centre strip is a piece of torn vellum and I added a piece of blue ribbon too.

The image is LOTV 'Balloon Basket' which is coloured with my Promarkers (and the balloon is paper pieced from a scrap of the background paper). I added a little stamped sentiment and a few blue adhesive pearls to finish off.

Hope you can come and play along - why not pop over to the challenge where you can see some more fab inspiration from my design team.

Hugz, Jan xx


  1. Hi Jan this is a gorgeous card I love the baby image you have used. When you stamp you can make them boys or girls it is so easy. I am glad your start back at work went well. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  2. Beautiful card Jan. The image is so sweet. Glad to hear you are back at work and your first week went well. We are still on holiday here, one more week to go.
    Take care
