Baby Love

Hi Everyone.  

Finally managed to do some crafting after our family holiday in Florida.  We had a super time visiting Mickey and friends, going on rides and shopping.  Also managed few trips to Michaels and Joanns.  

So now that the family are back into routine I thought I would get cracked on with some new baby cards that I need.  Here's my first one which fits the Less is More challenge this week to use polka dots.  I'm hoping that my mojo came back with me and isn't still partying it up in Florida!  It was really strange picking up my crafting tools after such a long break.

Here's the details of my card - 

The card base is Crumb Cake.  I used some patterned paper from Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper.  I stamped Fox and Friends in Bashful Blue, Crumb Cake and So Saffron on Whisper White which was then mounted onto Crumb Cake.   "baby" and "love" were stamped in Bashful Blue from Pennant Parade.  Linen Thread was used to hang the tags and a small Basic Pearl finishes it off.

A little tip to share.  I was literally becoming swamped in scraps so decided to sort them out into rough sizes.  I now have several plastic boxes (chinese takeaway boxes worked fab, used them all. must eat more Chinese hee hee) with varying sizes of scraps.  Took a whole evening and a numb posterior!  But much easier to look for small pieces for tags etc.  

Hope you are having a great week!  Take care. x

Such a cute card Aileen. What a good idea to recycle your Chinese takeaway boxes. It sounds like a painful job but well worth the effort. Sue.x
