Baby baby

Hello lovely people,

Gosh, it's been a whole week since I last posted - bad Kat!  I have good reason though as many of you will know I was super busy organising the celebration of my parents' 60th birthdays.  We had a wonderful gathering of family at the weekend with lots of fun and games and, most importantly, lots and lots of cake :-D

All the Crafty Little Fairies have been bowled over by the support for our re-branding and by the fantastic number of entries last week so here's our theme for this week...
New Baby

We have the wonderful Live and Love Crafts as our sponsor this week with a £10 voucher up for grabs...the difficult bit will be deciding what to choose!

This theme came at just the right time for me as a work colleague has just had a little baby girl :-)  As you can see I reached straight for my LOTV Big sentiments...again!

I also got to play with my new Memory Box star dies - they are just gorgeous and cut perfectly even on the really skinny bow.  I used some rub-ons for the little letter tiles.

Card recipe;
DP: Maja Designs - Vintage Spring Basics
Stars: Memory Box Precious Stars
Scalloped square: Spellbinders Nestie
Button twine: from The Ribbon Girl

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;
1.  Inky Chicks (stitching)
2.  Sweet Stampin' (spots and stripes)

I can't wait to see what you create for our New Baby theme at CLF this week; check out the inspiring creations from the rest of the fairies :-)

Thanks for visiting,

Kat xx
