Heaven Sent

Happy New Year everyone.
Hope you've all had a lovely time over the holidays.
Lots of eating, drinking and merriment went on here and I have the increased waistband to prove it!

Here's my first card of 2013, for someone who is expecting her first baby in a week's time. 



This is my 'go to' design for baby cards - I think it's so cute and very simple to put together.
After attaching my DP to a card blank, I use a circle nestie to cut the legs and neck, and a craft knife to cut the sides.
The edges are then trimmed with pieces from a scalloped circle die and my lace doily punch.
Finally I add some pearls for buttons and a little satin bow.
