Simon Says + Do it with digis + Dutchdare + Cute Card Thursday + Stamping for the weekend

Good afternoon Friday.

Well, woke up to snow this morning and it has been snowing quite heavy until about 11 am but has finally stopped. Went into town to do some shopping - I managed to get a lift from a friend. My car is still broke (head-gasket again) and won't be picked up until monday - £140.00 it's gonna cost me :((.

There are a lot of challenges around at the moment for A New Beginning and I just love this image from A Day for Daisies. I made this card for Phoebe's auntie who's expecting her first at the end of January. After years and years of trying she finally got pregnant with IVF. They already know it's a little boy :).
I have used a lot of my old papers (they must be at least 2 years old) for CUTE CARD THURSDAY and blue for STAMPIN FOR THE WEEKEND. SIMON SAYS and DUTCHDARE both asked for New Beginnings as did DO IT WITH DIGIS (they want digital images only). Both the sentiment and the button has been in my stash gatering dust for ages. Time to use them I think.

Materials: Nap-time @ A Day for Daisies
Papers: very old from stash (Me and my big idea, K&Co)
Button and sentiment: from stash (OLD)

Thank you for dropping by and have a lovely day, Mette

What a beautiful and elegant image - and the colour scheme is so lovely!
Sorry to hear about your car, darn expensive to get it fixed too...:((
Sorry I've been out of loop for so long, it's been more a hospital than a house here for almost a month!
