Baby Hammock


Thank you for all of Harrison's Birthday Wishes - he had a lovely meal on Saturday with friends, but on Sunday he was unable to go to Rugby, as the pitch was flooded and still is, and they are not sure when it will be ok again, maybe if it stopped raining that would help ;-)

My lovely friend Beverley and John became Grandparents for the 1st time just after Xmas and this is the card i made for them - the design is taken from 'Quick Cards, Christmas 2015' - Centre Swing Card. The image is : Penny Black - 'Baby Hammock / 2073J / 2001', the papers are leftovers but i think possible the writing one is DCWV ?, the corners are : Whimsy Stamps - 'Corner Die Set', the banner is : Memory Box - 'Simple Banner' the edging is : Martha Stewart Punch - 'Cherish', the ribbon is from: The Ribbon Girls and the pearls are from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Cuttlebug Mania - where the Challenge is 'New Cuttlebug Mania Year'  - i used my Big Shot for this card and the details of the dies are above

Crafty Cardmakers - where Challenge No: 155 is 'New Home, Baby, Job etc'

Crafty Calendar - where January's Challenge  is 'New'

Cute Card Thursday - where Challenge No: 407 is 'Hey, What's New ?' - i've gone for New Baby and New type of card

Pixie's Snippets Playground  - where they are up to Challenge No: 211

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x

Wow Sam - what a stunner this is! Perfect baby card and I do love the shape - it really does look gorgeous with the wonderful image, papers, punching etc.

And how strange, I've just culled a huge stack of QCME magazines and kept very few articles to try some techniques out - and the article covering these cards is one of them! I have to say that yours knocks spots off the Christmas ones shown in the magazine - well done!
