Welcome Baby PP151

It's always such a happy occasion when a new baby arrives safely, don't you think?
In some ways that makes New Arrival cards the easiest cards to make.

I decided to base my card on the sketch by Nance at The Paper Players. My card is made using Soft Sky card, a colour that is NEW to me and returning to the subtles range, and I can understand why.
I used a greeting from Lovely Labels stamped in Marina Mist and chose the sweet little kitten from Storybook Friends which I water-colored using the Aquapainter. I bought this stamp set after receiving the cutest swap made with it at the South Pacific Stampin' Up! Convention in May, I love all those sweet little animals, so cute!

The {Welcome Baby, sweetness unlimited} is a retired single stamp from a few years ago that I retain in my stash, just because.... and it is stamped onto a half doily, the largest one to be cut from Perfect Pennant Bigz L. I usually have a "cutting session" from time to time with my Big Shot so I can keep some on hand.

The strip of  Storybook Friends DSP helps tie the colours together, and I added a strip of Marina Mist Taffeta ribbon too. Now I'm all ready for the next baby boy that arrives!

I'm travelling to spend time with and babysit two grandsons and their little sister on Saturday - lovely
You have a lovely weekend too,
