Welcome Baby :-)

Hi all :-) I have a couple of baby cards to share with you today but first I have to say a HUGE congratulations to my nephew, Craig and his lovely wife Brittany on the birth of their first little baby girl, Allannah Nia Bell :-) She was born in the early hours of this morning and Mum and Baby are doing well :-)

I was very lucky to receive a parcel of goodies to try out from Imagine Crafts and Tsukineko, courtesy of Simon Says Stamp. In it were a couple of Stazon Opaque ink pads in Blush Pink and Baby Blue, as well as a Delicata Ink pad in Silvery Shimmer, and these were used on these cards :-) 
THANKS Simon Says Stamp :-)

I really love the opaque ink effect on the vellum,,, so delicate and pretty :-)  I used a few of Simon's baby sentiments to create a subway art style background and layered it onto some dark coloured cardstock ie  Simon's Doll Pink and Bazzill Navy, so the ink would be more visible. 

I used Stencils to make the background and also sprayed and spattered some Silver Shimmer Spritz, which was also in the parcel,,,, aren't I lucky !! :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please don't forget to leave me one ;-)

and this is the beautiful and adorable Allannah,,, awwww  :-) I can't wait to meet her ,,, I think this calls for another trip home, back to the UK, don't you !! :-)
