I just love New Baby Cards!

Hi! I hope you are all well...

In here I'm trying to get into the Christmas spirit... Alaia has her Nursery Christmas Performance tomorrow! She is going to be an Angel and they will be singing Christmas songs. I can't wait! it's her first performance... I get so emotional seeing the little children all dressed up and excited! I'll try not to cry...  And I've finally put our Christmas tree up!  we've also added some sparkly lights on the staircase this year... Apart from that, I still have lots to do... I haven't finished buying the presents, but hopefully they will be all wrapped up and place in a secret place at the end of the week!

Today I'm taking a break from Christmas cards (I confess, I still have a few left to make... ), and I bring you another New Baby card. This time it's a Baby boy!

I used one my favourite Mo Manning (Mo's Digital Pencil) images "Baby and Bunny". 
I've used papers from: K&Company, Me to you "Especially for you" paper pack and Little boy blue pad by Crate Paper. I really love the latest.... it has all kind of papers for new baby cards, some with moses baskets, growth charts.. and I love this one, it's like a page for babysitters to take notes in!

I inked the edges of the papers with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen and with blue ink.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers.
For the hair: Sandstone and Buttermilk.
For the skin: Almond, Sandstone, Satin and Blossom
For the cushion: powder blue.
For the Bunny: lavender plus blender pen.

I used my Xcut Square Nesting die for the image.

The flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I used my Marianne Creatables die for the leaves.
The Doily is from Trimcraft.
I printed the sentiment and baby's name and covered baby's name with Anita's 3-D Gloss.
The brads and beads are from local shops. The safety pin just comes from my sewing kit!
