New Baby, New Beginnings....

Hi!!!! I'm back!

I've had a few days break from blogging over Christmas, although I've done a bit of crafting here and there... I have a few projects going on that I'm not able to share with you just yet...

I hope you all had a fab Christmas. In here, at the Diaz-Kaleem household we had a very happy little girl, who has become a "mummy" to her baby doll now... she got a lot more things, but the doll is her favourite! I got some great crafty things I can't wait to use now... and of course, the new CD of Olly Murs, I just love him!

 Now I'm just waiting for New Year Celebrations... bring on 2014!!!! nothing like the feeling of starting new, with the New Year resolutions and all that! I'm still working on my New Year Resolutions, and this year, I'll make all of them happen!!!! (well, I won't put too much pressure on myself... with achieving just a few I'll be happy!)

Today I got a New Baby card I was asked to make (yes, another one! and more to come soon, so many new babies!!!). I used my Lili of the Valley "Baby Blanket" rubber stamp.

The papers I've used are from First Edition Rose Garden Paper Pad.
I have hand-stitched the borders of all the papers... I should really start using my sewing machine... I bought it years ago, but never managed to do it properly!!!  for the moment, until then, I'll carry on with my hand-stitiching!

As always, I used my Promarkers to colour the baby.

For face: Vanilla, Almond, Ivory and blossom
For clothes: Pink Carnation, blossom, pink mittens and blender pen.
Floor: Lavender
I paper-pieced the blanket with a bit of scrap left from papers.

The Die cuts I've used are: Marianne Creatables corner, Joy Crafts tag and the Sizzix Scallop Circle nesting dies.

The flowers, lace and pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
