CCT #75 - New Beginnings


Our theme this week over on Cute Card Thursday is "New Beginnings". You could make a card for a new arrival, a new or a new job etc. - and aren't they always handy to have in stock? I actually do have a friend expecting a baby in four weeks' time so this was a perfect one for me!!

This beautiful stamp is from Whiff of Joy and has been coloured with Promarkers and chalks. Papers are from Designer Digital. Velvet ribbon and sequin lace was from Scrapz quite a while ago. Flower are from Wild Orchid and this beautiful sentiment is from Elzybells. I just love their sentiments so much - they are so different and very reasonably priced as well.

Another fabby sponsor this week and as always the rest of the Design Team has created some absolute beauties to pop over to the blog here to have a look and join in with us.

I don't know whether it's because Ben has just stared school but this week's theme has had me all emotional!! The lovely sentiment on my card actually had me welling up with tears. Good job DH is coming home today to keep me occupied!! YEY!!

Stunning card hun, so love the verse, the sweet image, the delicate colouring and gorgeous lace!
so good to hear from you, sorry I have been rubbish at keeping in touch, it has been a busy and stressful time. Thanks so much for your welcome back message, you gave me such a good giggle! It is great to be back! Even with limited supplies, oddly enough we are planning a shopping trip on saturday and I might just have to try to locate a Robert's this weekend!
