For a New Year

Hello world of lovely people!

I hope your Christmas holidays were absolutely fantastic! We nestled in and had a HUGE FEAST of family time - it was sooooo wonderful!

My poor little blog hasn't been very festive lately, and so I thought - with the New Year galloping towards us, I'd share a little baby card that I recently made to welcome a perfectly new, sweet little girl who was much anticipated, loved and celebrated. Welcome to the world little one! :0)

Babies from Heaven

I took a bit of inspiration from Melissa Phillips during the release week of "Hanging Out" for this one. The card needed to be 100% girly, and I needed a touch of Shabby Chic inspiration!

I'd love to re-take these pics with a little more background contrast ... but getting the card in the mail was the main focus at the time. (And that covers a New Year's resolution too - to get my cards *INTO* the mail! :0)

Hope you have a *sweet* day!



Stamps: Hanging Out, Bitty Baby Blessings (Papertrey Ink)
