Whiff of Joy - can't believe I made the DT !!!!!!

Oh how much of a lucky girl am I ? I have been so honoured to be chosen as one of the new DT members over at Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog whoop, whoop, did you hear my screams of excitement ? The girls have all been so welcoming that I have felt at home straight away. So, on with the business, this is my first card as part of the DT, this week the challenge is a recipie, 3 papers, 3 flowers and 1 ribbon. I have used the lovely Willow with her baby stamp from the new collection, a real dream to colour, I have done this with my copics as always. I nearly had a blue fit as my E00 had run out and I didn't have a refil, just managed to eek it out for this image though, and as you can see, I had the old sewing machine out again.

The 3 papers I have used are two by Craft Creations and one from Bazzil. I have layered 2 flowers together for the main embelishment and just used a single small one to complete my 3. A few fibres under the spacer and a pearl brad finish the job nicely. The swirls are cut with a quickutz flourish die, The last part of the recipie was the ribbon, I thought the sentiment on this one said it all ' Simpy Adorable '

I added a few little crystals for a bit of sparkle, I do like a bit of sparkle lol ! I found a brad that said ' Its a Boy ' and thought that added the finishing touch. Hope you like what I have done, and I look forward to seeing you over on the challenge blog.

p.s not completly sure of how to contact you regarding this, my dashboard has shown you have updated blog, with a spoonful of sugar summer time, but when I click on it im told your blog does not exist. was wondering if you have changed the details? I still want to follow along as your creations are so inspiring.
