A wee bundle of joy.

Good afternoon, how are you this Tuesday?
It was a tad wet here first thing, the beauty of the holidays, delaying the dog walking till dry.
Today I have a CAS baby card for you that I made for the challenge last week over at The Great Scheme of things.  The colour combination being soft pinks, yellow and green.  This is what I came up with.

To start with I have cut a C6 card landscape, I then used my Papertrey ink dies to cut out a pastel green frame, the white stitched frame and the internal vellum, Cuddly friends by K & Company. I layered the frames together also taking the oval out of the card so that the light shines through the vellum. I have then added a coordinating organza bow. The wee tag and stamps are also by Papertrey ink and I have stitched it to the bow with pale green thread. Finally I rounded all the outside edges to go with the rounded edges theme.

I love these little tags and stamp sets by Papertrey ink and the photo really doesn't show the vellum to it's best.  In real life the light flows through the vellum, guess that is down to my photography skills or lack of them!

Plans for the rest of today, not very exciting I am afraid, still working my way through the ironing, I did say it was a huge pile!
I am hoping to get the kids off gadgets and out to the cinema later to see Inside out. 
Would it be wrong to say I am really looking forwards to the film?  
I've got to remember however not to laugh in all the wrong places again.  How to embarrass your kids!  Apparently according to my kids I am very good at laughing when I shouldn't watching films.
I just have a very unique sense of humour, that's my excuse and I am sticking to it.

More from me tomorrow, happy crafting.
