New Beginnings at Fab'n' Funky

 Good morning, I hope your week is going well- it's been good here! We just booked a holiday to Italy, our first time overseas for 11 years so very exciting! Usually we stay in the UK so that we don't have to leave the dog behind- but sorry Marvin- this one's for us! He'll be well looked after, a friend of ours is going to stay here with him, she's one of his favourite people and dog-crazy so he'll be thoroughly spoiled!  We'll book another holiday later in the year so he won't miss out on his favourite beach walks.

My card today is my DT card for our new challenge at Fab'n' Funky, the theme is 'New Beginnings' chosen by our lovely N-Eva who is hosting this fortnight. As you can see, it's for a new baby, my friend's tiny new granddaughter who was born last week. I used a very old wood backed stamp from Whipper Snapper Stamps, so cute! I think this one is actually the 'boy' version but I gave a pink vest and a bow in it's 'hair' so no one will ever know! The letters are hand drawn and fussy cut, papers are old ones from LOTV and the border is punched using a Martha Stewart punch (at least 10 years old) so it's a real mix of old and new here!

There's lots of inspiration from the Fab'n' Funky girls over on the challenge blog, so do hop over for a visit, we'd love to see your takes on the theme too, can never have too much inspiration!

Thanks for visiting

You can't do better that Italy Chris (well in my view but I'm biased) and Marvin will have a super time being spoilt rotten. A pretty New Baby card in perfect soft colours.

Ps If I didn't send you a Christmas card please accept my aploagies as I Did some and wrote a list of who I had already sent to and then you have guessed it I lost the list so couldn't remember who I had done them for.

Chris, Gotta love the WS teddy bear, and your sweet coloring of the image. I have plenty of those older wood mount stamps, too, and am partial to them for the artsy beauty. Your background so pretty, making this a perfect baby keepsake! How exciting to be going to Italy. I'm thrilled for you!

Oh I am sooooo jealous but very happy for your upcoming holiday in Italy. Our poor wee Squirt is on his last legs so we don't want to leave him at the minute. We are just riding the storm :( Your baby card is a real sweet one. Love the big letters.
