(A bit late) New Arrival @ LCI


Gosh it's been a little while!  Work nightmare continue, but I have been making the time to craft, not least because I have been going to my friend Karen's crafty evenings :-D  I've really been enjoying seeing old friends again, although as always there's often more coffee drunk, cake eaten and catching up than crafting!

The result is that I've actually got stuff to share - well I did until my internet died a death last week, just as I was about to post this card.  Anyway, shiny new router (or whatever it is called, although it would have been far more helpful if the delivery guy hadn't just left it round the back of the garage, but, I dunno, actually tried to see if we were home (we were!).  Just as well it was wrapped in plastic and the rain hadn't got through... Tusk... well at least I'm back on now, even if it's taken an extra day :-D

There I go again with the blah blah blah...

So on Tuesday the new release of Baby Billie images from LCI are released, and as always they are fabby and perfect, and the image I've used is spot on for when there's more than one new arrival, but more on that in a minute!

You can check out all the DT's cards by visiting their links on the main LCI Challenge Blog, and there are oodles of prizes on offer, so why not have a peek!

OK, so I'm going to fess up and admit to loving my fellow DT Lauries white and kraft card (here) that she posted a while back, so I took inspiration from her colour scheme, and took away and added bits and bobs here and there (Laurie... are we still friends, or do I need to grovel and/or send cash?). 

I was going to heat emboss the back bit of kraft, but for the life of me I can't find my heat gun, I'm going to search the garage next as I suspect HB has nicked it to put heat shrink wrap round some cables on the mini!

So here's my card

And a close up of the sweet Twins! image... the greeting on the front reads Congratulations!, but only because I didn't have a "Commiserations" stamp... LOL!  I did this one as a boy/girl twins card, but the image would look equally as cute coloured up for twin girls or boys

I used some of my new dies for this card - I've been hankering after this fence die for ages and this card seemed perfect for it's first outing, and when I saw this image the baby clothes die just happened to fall in my basket too... no idea how that happened!

Hope you like it

Please may I enter these challenges
