Joining the Baby Bandwagon

Did that get your attention?? No, I'm not if!! That would be a minor miracle, and a catastrophic failure of modern surgical techniques LOL...but it seems that babies are popping out all over the place. I know so many people who have just announced that they are pregnant/have just given birth/or are about to give birth any second. It seems that I'm not alone... Sarah and Teneale, two of my favourite cardmakers in the country are also making lots of baby cards. Check out their blogs for their gorgeous creations! They are well worth a look.

We had a team meeting on Monday, and we all made a Chrissy card using the Spotlight on Christmas set. I used the fabulous FREE ribbon on this card, and a bit of a different Christmas colour combo:
and then to show just how versatile this set is, and also because I needed to make a few baby cards, and I wanted to use some of the yummy FREE So Saffron ribbon, I came up with this one:

I made a Pink Pirouette version too, which has been sent off already. I made the star all glittery with 2-way glue and dazzling Diamonds, and then added a layer of Crystal Effects, which gives it a glossy, glittery effect. Using patterned paper made this card super quick and easy.
I'm on a "perfect knot" tying mission this month...if you come along to my classes during October I will show you how to tie a perfect, flat knot (whether you like it or not LOL)

Don't forget: Only a few days left to get your FREE ribbon! Email me with an order for $100, and you'll receive a ribbon bundle absolutely free.
