New beginnings at Creative Moments

Good morning, hope everyone's new year has started well! There's a new challenge starting today at Creative Moments with an optional theme of  'new beginnings' - interpret that as you will- so I decided to make a new baby card (my sister's bestie is due to produce her first baby any minute!). I was asked to make some cards for her.... sex of baby not yet known, so neutral colours in order! I'm a bit disappointed with the way the colours look in the photo as the card is shades of cream and brown - not yellow and green, but was the best I could get given the current lighting conditions! The image I used , courtesy  of QKR Stampede, our lovely sponsor this time- is Special Delivery. The  big birdie  and his little bundle were coloured with copics, the sky with distress inks..The cream card is embossed with tiny hearts. sentiment stamp is Paper Smooches. I added twine and a safety pin charm.
It's been great getting back to crafting after the Christmas break, nice to have a little time to myself again after all the if you're feeling the need for a little 'crafting time' why not join us this fortnight...remember the theme is optional so you can make whatever you choose, a great opportunity to try out those lovely new goodies Santa left you!. Just click here to be transported to the Challenge Blog, there's plenty of fabulous creations from my lovely teamies to inspire you!
Thanks for visiting, have a lovely day!
