Precious One

Good Monday morning to all of you!  How was your Christmas time?  Ours was filled with family and food and lots to enjoy and appreciate.  I love watching my “big kids” at Christmas learn what it’s like to be excited to GIVE presents not just receive them.  And I also love seeing my little niece and nephew and their excitement for their presents too.  Best of both worlds.

Today I thought I’d start out with a baby design.  I had a few minutes of colouring time while the kids were enjoying their Christmas presents yesterday and made this sweet little baby girl design.

This digi image from A Day for Daisies is called Under the Stars.  It’s such a sweet little design of a baby in a hammock under the moon and stars.  I gave it some colouring with Copics and cut it out with the feeling of an arched window.  All you need to do is cut it as a rectangle, and then only run part of your stitched circle die so only the top portion of the die cuts.  I echoed that feel in the overall card shape as well.  

Those blossoms in the image inspired me to pick the blossomy white ribbon to accent and then some sparkly star rhinestones.  

The sentiment is from an old SU set, Cute Converse.  I like it for the sweet little sized sayings.  I wanted the little bit of yellow in a circle to mimic the moon.  

Here’s the Copics I used.  Be back this week again.  I’ll have new things and also my year end wrap up of my favourite cards from 2015!
