A New Baby Girl

It's Friday!!!! I cannot tell you how happy I am. Firstly because the week is almost over and secondly, because we're going to sneak away for the weekend. I've had enough of this cold weather, and like Canadian ducks, we're headed south to catch some sun... hopefully. Keeping my fingers crossed because the past 2 days we've had hail, rain and more hail. Needless to say, I'm not venturing out after dark, not since my last acrobatic fiasco. Me and my tail, we're playing it safe.

In the meantime, a good friend of mine, decided to have a baby in this terrible weather. The little bundle of joy arrived yesterday and I thought I'd make Mummy and Baby a card before we skive off for the weekend. Here it is:

The patterned papers are by From Me To You. I just love Tatty Teddy. Here he is bringing a pile of pressies for the new baby.

In keeping with the lots of layers theme, I went bonkers with my foam tape. Tatty Teddy is  perched on on Spellbinder die-cuts in Classic Oval and Lacey Oval.

All new-born baby girls love pink gingham and twine. Ok, I made that up. But us big people sure think they do. And for the baby I threw in a bottle charm....which I think is just adorable! 

Here's the inside. The sentiment is from WMS Say It Loud set, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.
In my enthusiasm to get it all done, I wrote my message before taking picture. A little cover-up is in order... but not enough. So, yes, Carlos is the name of the man I lovingly refer to as Conan (the Barbarian), Mr C or My Mad Biker. So that takes care of the numerous e-mails about his real name!

Now for the challenges. Here's my list, you might want to have a gander too: 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #130 "Twine"; Milk and Coffee Challenge "Make It Cute"; Moving Along With The Times - sketch; Dare to be Sassy Thursday #165 "Stitch It Up" ; Inspire Me Fridays #97 "Anything Goes"; Crafter's Circle #63 "Teddy Bears On Parade" and Shelly's Image Terrifically Thrilling Thursday "Sew Much Fun".

I also want to say hello to my new followers: Margaret, Christine, DebiJ, Esther and Ardilla. Welcome aboard, ladies! 

That's all for today. We're off bright and early tomorrow. The sitter is will arrive at the crack of dawn tomorrow and she'll will take of home and hearth while we're away.

Watch out for some scheduled DT posts over the weekend. Normal visiting will resume late on Sunday. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend, y'all!
