Baby - Thank you's

Hello All,

Yes, please don't faint .... I have finally managed to make a card to post here. I am now at 9 days to go and counting!! I have finally stopped being sick, 2 weeks before she is due, but I have a whole host of other things, I am looking forward to having her here ... and getting my body back!!

I have been trying to get some thank you cards ready. I have made about 15 of this design, I have used a whiff of joy stamp, and some scraps of paper. and I have just inked round the edge with "distress ink - spun sugar"

I have got about 50 of these images coloured but will prob do a few different designs or I will get soooo bored. Although its been so long since I have made cards I feel like I have no ability left! I just stare at my stuff and cant get started.

I would like to enter this card into:

Simon Says - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes

If I ever get back into any sort of routine hopefully I can get on here a bit more and do some commenting ...... I do get to pop on occasionally and check out your fabby creations.

once again
Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls

  29. This is a beautiful card Juls and a big congratulations on your impending little girl. I'm afraid I haven't been around for the past few months either as I just haven't had the time or the mojo as Brian's still isn't doing too great since his strokes but hey things could be worse. Anyway congrats again to you and your hubby and cant wait to see some piccys when she arrives.

  30. This is such a pretty card Juls and very appropriate for a thank you card. Glad to hear you're not sick any more but as you've discovered the nearer you get to term other problems take over. At least it's March not a hot summer month. My eldest was born in October but I had to get through a really hot summer!

    I was just thinking that your baby must be due soon so nine days is not long at all. Really exciting and can't wait to hear of the safe arrival.

    Take care now and get lots of rest before the broken nights start!

  31. You will soon have a bundle of joy at home with you.....can only imagine how little time that will allow for crafting! Good luck ;)
    xoxo Sioux

  32. Hi Juls great card, love the image. Can't believe how long you've got left...that's passed quickly although you won't think so if you've been sick throughout. Good luck with the last little bit and the birth, lots of joy and fun ahead!
    Crafty hugs Erika. x

  33. Oh my this is just the sweetest, all the white space is so soft and dreamy for this beautiful stamp. I love the town paper bits too!

  34. So exciting! :) Two of my boys were born in March, looks like you'll be close to my youngest which was on the 11th. Take care! Another lovely card, love the strips of paper.

  35. Such a sweet card! This image is just darling! Hugs!

  36. I hope you are doing well; I love this sweet girlie card. And your coloring skills are amazing.
    Something different;) a friend of us was due March 14th and yesterday she gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. Hopefully you can hold your baby in your arms soon ...
    Take care,
