Paper Smooches and Avery Elle New Baby Card






Hello everyone,

I hope you had a good weekend and are ready for a new week. Our weekend was a bit hectic but we spent a lovely evening with friends at the Lowry Theatre on Saturday seeing Tom Paxton sing. Tom is 77 years old now and I have enjoyed his concerts many times over the years. He held the audience in the palm of his hands while he took us on a journey through his songs that made me laugh and cry. He told us that this was the last concert of his last tour, and it makes me sad to think that I won't see him sing live again, but I think that at 77 years old he deserves to put his feet up, and I thank him for all the pleasure he has given me throughout his career!

Over the past few years we have been attending lots of weddings and so it shouldn't surprise me that a lot of people I know are expecting babies this year! I thought I better start preparing for the cards and gifts I am going to need and the current challenge over at Showcase Your Style caught my eye with their inspiration photo of film gubbins



I decided to cut a filmstrip on my Silhouette Cameo and play along with this card




I used the stork from the Avery Elle Plus One stamps set and coloured it with Copics and a gel pen before fussy cutting it to fly onto the card. The filmstrip was placed at the bottom and I added alphabet stamps that I stamped with various colourful inks, and I scattered stars cut with the SSS confetti die in the same colours. The welcome came from the Paper Smooches die which coordinates with their wonderful Welcome Wagon stamp set. When I first saw this lovely stamp set I was reminded of my Mum's favorite song which was 'Welcome to My World by Jim Reeves and as the current challenge over at Open Minded Crafting is 'inspired by a song', I'd like to play along there this time. Finally, the challenge over at The Pink Challenge this week is 'things with wings'  and I hope I have enough pink here to qualify!

Thanks for stopping by
