A card and something far more adorable

Good morning blogger friends.
 
Hope you are all well and having a lovely weekend. I am still off work until Wednesday. The time has flown and I haven't got half as much done as I wanted. My intention whilst I was on holiday was to take pictures of all the stamps I do not use and put them on my blog to sell. I have loads of Clarity Stamps and I would love them to have a new home so that someone can enjoy them.
 
We have had Evie for the last couple of days. She is such a delight - smiles all the time. I cant believe it will be her first birthday soon.
 
I have another card today using my well loved stamp Happily Ever After by Tiddly Winks.
A full product list will be at the bottom of this post with a link to the on line shop.


The scummy papers are by Michelle R Designs. I love these papers and seem to buy a new design each time I make a card. I don't feel guilty in the least as they are downloads and so affordable.


The couple have benn coloured with Distress Markers and Frantage has been added to the mat


The flowers are from WOC and LLC. The ribbon is from my own stash.
 

The sentiment on the pull out is from Pink Petticoat. The heart die from Doo Hickey has been stamped with a Love stamp from Magnolia. The heart on the ribbon is from LLC.


I have added two rings amongst the flowers.

And now for some pictures of the adorable Evie Maie. We have had her for a couple of day and is was pure joy. She was a bit restless the first evening and at 1am I gave her a bottle. I used to love night feeds - just you and the baby having the most peaceful time in the dark. It took me back 22 years and was such a special moment.
 
 
Love it or hate it and Evie loves Marmite!!!
 
 
And her beautiful smile.
 
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

Ta ta for now
 
Hugs Sharon. x

I'm with Evie as I also love Marmite!

What a stunner this is, the card I mean, although so is Evie. I recently used that image myself and it's great to see such a different take on it. Love the frantage and the fabulous shabby chic feel.

Gorgeous
