It's always great to have a reason to make a card!

Hey everyone..I'm finally back in the land of the living! Sorry again for my absense but hopefully things can get back to normal now!

We had some fabby news during my 'rest' some of our friends Andy and Sally had a little girl! They are English but live over in the US so we don't see them as often as we would like. But on the 13th October their first little girl arrived. Eleanor Rose. Thank goodness for Facebook as Sally posted some adorable pictures of the new arrival and I was able to 'borrow' one for my new baby card.

I printed the images of Eleanor in black and white onto some lovely shimmery paper that I bought from the Papermill Shop a while back..the shimmer doesn't really show on the pictures but it's really pretty. I liked the effect so much that I printed the two backing papers on the same stuff, so the card has a really sparkle look. The papers are both from a collection from my craft backing paper CD Now that's Funky. I wanted to keep it pretty simple as the image is so lovely so I just inked all the edges of the papers to give a bit of definition, added an pink organza ribbon and four stick on pearls.

Even though I haven't been here much I have been pretty busy as I have been putting the finishing touches to my all new CD collection. It's now all finished and ready to go off to the manufacturers for pressing and packing. I sent preview copies off to my Design Team Members last week and they have been making some fantastic cards and other projects with the new collections.. It's all very exciting and I can't wait to share them all with you!! I don't want to tease you too much so I'll just leave the details there but I'll be back with more info soon on release dates etc and also when you will be able to see it on the Create and Craft TV Channel.

Well time is getting on and I've work to do so I will leave you there, I'll be back soon hopefully with some more crafting projects.
