A baby girl this time!

>> Tuesday, 4 August 2009

Two new babies in a week!  Another of my NCT friends has had No.2, this time a little girl who arrived last Friday.  I’ve used the lovely sketch from this weeks Sketch & Stash challenge and, for a change, I’ve paper pieced my image rather than colour her.  I love the simple layout of this card as you get to see lots of the Graphic 45 paper.  I bought some lace from a local sewing shop yesterday so this is my new stash item.  I’m also entering this card in the Spoon Full of Sugar challenge (floral fantasy) and Stamp Something (paper piecing).
