It's Friday time to share an oldie. Babiesrus!

Good morning, how are you this Friday?
It is my weekend off work so as you know from my last couple of posts, I am spending a few crafty days in Edinburgh.  I shall be learning some new crafty techniques too, maybe even finding time to do a little shopping, well it would be rude not to.
If you are just visiting for the first time I encourage you to join me reposting an old crafty project from your blog or indeed posting something you made a while ago but have never blogged.  It can be anything that you have made yourself.  All I ask is that you use the link below so I can pop along to your blog and see your old make too.  I will comment on all.
Today I have a picture to share with you that I made for a friend when she had a first baby.

Sarah now has a little brother too who was born last year, he got my first crocheted bunny for his birth gift and apparently takes it everywhere with him.
For this canvas I used a little cutie from Sugar Nellie called Bambino.  It is coloured using my copics and layered in sparkly pink gingham.  The canvas background is covered with Distress ink Spun Sugar and the frame is painted white then distressed with sandpaper and Vintage photo Distress ink.  The charm and ribbon are from my stash.

I love this little baby digi image and have used it loads for baby cards and canvasses.
It makes me feel all broody, then I hear my two shouting at each other and the urge soon settles down.  I don't think I could go back to nappies now, mind you I think I'd be better with the sleepless nights!  
Five hours seem to be my average just now.  

That's all from me today, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you if you are joining in sharing an oldie today, I do appreciate each and everyone of you taking part.  Have a super end to the week and an even better weekend.  
Don't forget to link up below....

Hi Erika,
oh my what a superb creation today.
Your colouring of that super cute image is superb.
Just a perfect gift for a new mother, and father.
I bet it was really treasured.
ooooooooooooooo! I wish I was coming with you to Edinburgh as I just love that place.
The park there must be in full bloom of their Rhododendrons at the mo, and I have never seen soooooooooooooo! many in one place.
Not to mention the wonderful shopping also.
Have a really super weekend.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

What a beautiful card. I became a granny (real name nanny!) for the first time this week. So an apt idea for me!.
I'll be posting my oldie tomorrow as usual

Sorry I didn't get a chance to join in with an Oldie this week. Your canvas is so beautiful Erika, the image is beautifully coloured and what a wonderful gift and keepsake for the parents.

Such beautiful colouring, I'm sure this is still a very treasured possession. I'll try and get back with an oldie later, don't know where the time went this week! Cara x
