New Mom

New Mom - It is time for a new challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity. Our challenge this week is Marvelous Mums and we are sponsored by Crafts 4 Eternity.

I made this card for my DIL, who is expecting her first child. We are thrilled and were very happy to hear that it is a girl. Kaylee will be here in July and we are so excited. We have 5 grandsons, but no granddaughters. Finally, a princess!!!

My DP's are MME, Lost and Found, Market Street. I love the pinks and blue/greens. Such soft colors. All papers and image was inked with Tea Dye distress ink.

My image is Saturated Canary's New Baby, This new mom looks so tired. As, we all know, that is how new mothers always feel.

I colored Amanda and Kaylee with Copics. Then I added some Stickles to the hair tie  earring, eye shadow, belt and the pom poms on the baby's blanket.

My embellishment is Recollections. It is one that I have been hoarding. Only Kaylee could coax it out of my stash.
