Hi all, hope you're all keeping warm what with all of the white stuff falling everywhere! Apparently we're in for a big flurry this weekend too!!
Before I show my card I'd just like to share some amazing news with you all .....
My beautiful eldest daughter & son-in-law are, at long last, expecting their second baby! They already have a gorgeous little boy who is now almost eight years old and they feel absolutely blessed that they have him, however, they sadly lost a baby four years ago and, after months of trying, which ultimately turned into years, were told that their only hope to fulfill their dreams of having another child was to undergo IVF. It's been an absolute rollercoaster for us all and they have truly felt every emotion you could possibly feel but, after deciding to go ahead with the IVF in October last year, I am so proud and delighted to tell you that all went as perfect as can be and they are expecting their little miracle baby in July of this year! My daughter had her second scan today and baby is as bouncy as ever :) Eeeeeek!! Soooo super excited!!!
So, onto my card and today I'm sharing with you all the most beautiful new image created by the very talented Sheryl of Redonkadoodles. This one is called Pregnancy Glow and I squealed with joy when I saw her! The timing of this release was absolutely perfect! I made this card especially to congratulate them on this fantastic news and the very apt sentiment was a free stamp last week from Create with TLC, which I merged with Pregnancy Glow.
I coloured this gorgeous gal up with my Copics - think I went a bit heavy on the red but hey, I'm still practising with these new markers - am sure I'll get the hang of them soon :) My copic ingredients are:
Skin: E00, E11, E21 Cheeks: R11
Hair: E35, E47, E53 E57
Eyes: B97, B95, B12 Lips: R37, R11
Top: R59, R37 (Copic) & DR7 (Spectrum Noir)
Skirt: B39, B97, B95
I used some old Christmas backing papers from my stash, added cheesecloth to the back of one of the mats and coloured the cute little feet charm with copics. Ribbon, brads and chipboard flower were also from my stash and, I've gone copic mad as each of them had a little copic colouring added to them all :)
I really hope you like my take on this gorgeous image and thanks so much for popping by today and sharing our good news with me! I would also like to say a massive HELLO to my lovely new followers too - it really does mean so much to me to have you on board :)
