Yay! You're preggers!

Isn't it lovely to hear some good news for a change.
My niece is expecting her first baby. We are delighted.
They don't want a fuss, but I couldn't resist a congrats card :-)


This cute Lola Rose image,  from Pink Petticoat , was perfect, and I printed her just off the edge of  my paper.
She's coloured with Copics, but don't look too closely, I haven't used them for a while.
I used some scraps of my all time favourite paper for the die cut sentiment and the thin strip of glitter down the right hand side.

Huge thanks to those of you who left me a comment about my current bout of ennui.
I really appreciate your kindness and support. 
I will keep plugging away and hopefully it will come back to me:  ;-)

Super card Caroline! Looks like you could be chasing the ennui away :) I do love the colours you've used for a very elegant looking card - isn't it funny at first I was convinced it was a Stampin' Bella image - PP does some really similar images, maybe they use the same designer?

Hugs, Di xx

WOW! Caroline what a stunning card - love it!

What's this I see about the slightest consideration about you even thinking about giving up crafting.......NNOOOWWWW!!

Pinterest has given me inspiration lately - please don't give up :) xx

Oh my gosh this is so cute and fun!
I bet they loved it.

I lose my mojo too...takes me a while to get it back too. I use pinterest for ideas or sometimes I even just make some quick and easy cards...just to use up stash and fill my finished cards basket. My kids come by and raid it often so it all works out in the end.

By the look of this lovely card, you mojo is returning...
