Totally gorjuss dt

Time for your weekly challenge on Totally gorjuss blog hoppers.  this week the theme is "Babies", and boy did i have fun putting this lot together, i seem to be veering towards the projects that take the most time these days.

I have used a new stamp for me from Belles & whistles called "Sweet dreams" and boy did i get all gushy when i was coloring this little darling.  I think its also the fact that my baby is getting big now as she has just truned four and i have reached my sell by date.  So no more babies for me, perhaps my son will make me a granny REAL SOON.

I was inspired to make a baby carriage by this lady Maya who has a great tutorial to follow although i did change it somewhat to suit myself.  I used one or my Ms Punches for all the lacy borders on the carriage and the card, added lots of flowers and a butterfly to finish it off, aswell as a few pearls for the feminine touch with it being all pnky.

Have a great weekend crafting girls and i look forward to seeing all the baby creations.
I forgot to add all the link of the challenges that i will enter this, so please let me know if i havent added a link that i entered this card in.

  8. What a precious project. Love the both the card and baby carriage. Great embellishments! Thanks for playing along with us at DDCC.

  9. This is so delightful - what a lovely extra touch with the little figure in the pram too. The doily looks so like a lacey baby blanket - this is a lovely illustration of how to incorporate symbolism within a design.
