Cherish The Moments

Hi, it's nice to see the warm weather is still around, although I keep getting told that it's all gonna change soon!

I'd like to share a quick card I've made for someone who will be giving birth to a baby girl very soon (she's currently in hospital at the moment being induced, so shouldn't be long now!).

The base is made from Kraft cardstock, and the dps are from DCWV Nanna's Nursery collection.  The lace is from my stash.

At the beginning of the year I joined Vicky's (from Crafting Clare) Stampers 6 club for a six month period - she is so lovely and makes the most amazing creations with her SU supplies. I now have a nice little collection on the go, and although I haven't had time to use much of it yet, I couldn't resist trying these little baby feet which were on my final order (I will be back!).  The sentiment is also from the same set and they are both stamped in Archival Ink (Coffee for the sentiment and Rose Madder for the feet).

I also decorated the inside (will upload a pic tomorrow) and made a sleeve to present this in, which is tied in a bow at the back, through a punched hole. 

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:-

Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
Shopping Our Stash - Something New
Crafty Boots - Babies

Bye for now.

Maria, this is the most beautiful card with those cute feet and I love the sentiment. I like the way you made the sleeve to present it in too. I do hope everything has gone well and that mum and baby are doing well. Hugs, Vicky x
