Pink Gem Baby Boy

Hi, and welcome!

It's a typical Bank Holiday, here in Merry Old England........dark, grey, windy and rainy.....and a bit nippy, to boot!
Hubster is workin' away from home, the rest of the family have got their own plans for the day, so I'm all alone....yaaaaay! least for a few hours, so out came the Promarkers.....onto my very clean and tidy desk.....(that's a story in itself).....and I've produced a baby boy card....just because......and quite like the way it turned out.....will show you in a mo........

I have to say that I've got some really lovely new goodies to play with.....but I'm actually scared to use 'em......yep.....they are sittin', watchin' and waitin' for me to take 'em up, and put'em to good use.....but I've seen some stunning makes that were created with 'em, and I just can't get enough mojo runnin' to actually do something about it.....weird?....definitely, but there you are.....sigh......

Anyways, here's the card I actually did get to make.......

As the title has already stated, this is a Pink Gem image....I just think it is the sweetest baby image ever ....and love it for a boy or a girl.......the card base is white and I used Nitwits papers to layer......

Coloured up with Promarkers, and a little shiny Mod Podge added to the moon......

Do you see the white organza ribbon with the teeny baby feet?  I bought a whole spool of this, and a pink one, back in the day when I first started to make cards....must be at least 10 years old, now.......but still cute, eh?.......

This rub-on, and the star with the little heart, are probably as old as the ribbon!  Can you tell I've been havin' a sort out?....hahaaaaa!

Still got no printer......and still don't know if it is actually the printer, or my computer, that's to blame....andI'm running out of time for my Design Team makes....aagghhhh!

Challenges:  Use two patterned papers  Punches, dies, shapes (the image is on a Nestie die cut, and also the checked layer....and what better reminder than a baby to help us remember we are all as clay, made by God's hand?)

  5. Oh my goodness, this is just so sweet. I really love baby cards and this one is just adorable. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ!

  6. Clean and tidy desk clearly equals clean and tidy card! Love it!

  7. HA! Now who is making "antique" cards? Did I start something. LUV the ribbon, though. It is so sweet and delicate. Perfect addition to a baby card.

    Keeping my fingers crossed that you will come up with a solution for your printer problems soon. As my wonderful DH will affirm, I have NO patience with misbehaving computers and printers.

  8. Arggg! I never did finish telling you how much I like that little card. My last comment made it sound as if the only thing I like is the ribbon -- not the case -- you've made a delightfully lovely card, and I like EVERYTHING about it!
