A new member of the family...

Isn't is always wonderful when there is a new baby in the family?  We have all been eagerly awaiting the arrival of my cousin Katie's little bundle and he arrived safely on Sunday 4th March.  Firstly I want to say a belated congratulations to Katie and Chris on the arrival of Josiah Arthur.  He is a little smasher!

If you read my blog regularly you may remember me posting about the beautiful Wedding Katie and Chris had a couple of Summers ago..if you'd like to see the pictures take a look here. Wedding of the Year!

Anyway, the arrival of a new baby is always the perfect time to make a card so here is mine..

As he was a little boy I couldn't add all the ribbon and flowers I would have for a little girls arrival so I thought I would keep it simple.  The teddy bear digital stamp, sentiment and all the backing papers are from my craft CD ROM Craft The Year Away.  I printed two copies of the bear as I planned on decoupaging all of him but in the end I just layered his head and the sentiment with 1mm foam pads as it didn't look right!!

The plain coloured papers under the image got a good distressing with one of my basic grey files.  I love filing and distressing the edges of paper it really chills me out!! Here's a closer look at those papers.

I know little Josiah is getting himself well settled in with his new Mom and Dad and Katie and Chris could not be happier.  It gives me a lovely warm feeling to think of them all starting this wonderful new journey together.  Hopefully this little card let them know how pleased I am for them all.

Right, before I go I just wanted to remind you of the Get Funky Challenge that is still running at the moment.  The challenge this month is 'Celebrating Spring' and you can make anything that you like for the challenge. It doesn't have to be a card, it could be a scrap page, an ATC, a label, some altered art.. anything at all that you like as long as it celebrates spring coming.  Though looking out of my studio window at this moment with sleet and bits of snow coming down it's not too Spring like at the moment!

The only rule we have on the Get Funky Challenge blog is that you use at least ONE Funky Hand product on your creation, it could be a backing paper one of our digital stamps anything.  If you don't have any Funky Hand stash in your craft collection then I help you out every month with a Funky Freebie which, this month is a backing paper that you can download from my website www.funkyhand.com for FREE. This months backing paper actually matches my latest craft download collection Spring Has Sprung.  So, no excuses, get making your Spring cards and join in with us on the Get Funky Blog.

Speak again very soon.
