THANK YOU and a new addition to the family..

Hello there how are you? I hope you had a fab weekend relaxing. I will start by thanking you all from the bottom of my heart for all your emails, text messages, facebook messages  as well as comments on my blog, I appreciate you taking the time to think of me I am so grateful THANK YOU !!
Mum has survived a 12 hour operation last Tuesday which was amazing in itself, however she is not out of the woods yet and the next few days remain critical. She is a fighter is my mum with a tremendous positive attitude( that's where I get mine from I am sure)  and already has amazed her surgeon and other professionals that are looking after her, so please keep her in your prayers a little while longer. My sister is still out there with her and I am so grateful for her, there's not much we can do right now but it comforts me to think she has one of us there with her at least.
And I have some of the sweetest news, we recently introduced a new member to our family. We spent this last Christmas with my cousin's daughter and her husband in Germany. They were expecting their first born and Lia was such a beautiful expectant mum. I had the pleasure of taking some gorgeous pregnancy shots of her while there and here's one of my favourites

And a few weeks back baby Sofia (I adore her name) entered the world safe via a C section as she was quite a big young lady. She is adorable and I am counting the days till I can meet her properly, here's a shot of the new family together isn't this the sweetest thing ever?

I am so happy for them all, and because we were their spiritual parents at their wedding Sofia is our first God Daughter all very exciting stuff I am sure this little bundle of joy will get spoilt a lot we are made up with her.
 And this was the card I made to welcome Sofia into the world

I fell in love with this card made by Lisa Young and kept it in my inspiration folder knowing I wanted to use it for this little one's birth. I did change it a bit and added the scallop trim to the top of the carriages and made it into an easel card but I kept the rest pretty much the same as it was so very perfect.
My combo is Regal Rose, Baja Breeze, Old Olive and So Saffron based on the sweet Nursery accessories, these sweet elements make light work for quick baby projects and I loved using them, I have also put together an lovely album for mum and dad to add pictures of their precious angel in the first few months and these elements were so easy and quick to work with I think I finished a whole album in the space of 4 hours.
I will share pictures of the album soon with you all.
A close up shows you that the carriages were made from the Curly Label punch and the square scallop punch was used to add the trim at the top. The wheels have been made with various circles and topped with a rhinestone for some extra bling. Satin ribbon tied in a bow keeps the easel card up and the sentiment is from the Curly Cute stamp set. The animals from the Fox and Friends set have been inked up using our fabulous markers.
I want to thank you for visiting me and once again for your support it means a lot to me, till next time BIG HUGS xx
