It seems as if there is a major baby boom going on at the moment, I know so many people having babies and a few that have already been born. There will be 5 additions to my extended family on one side alone! So it looks like there are going to be quite a few baby cards needed for the next while, so get used to it! lol!
We have a new challenge today from the Pink Team at Eclectic Ellapu and the lovely boss lady herself, Elaine, is hosting. The challenge for us this week is...
So sticking with the baby theme I thought I'd share what I gave to my best friend for her birthday and as she's up the duff with her first bambino I thought I'd try to make it special.
I made her a gift basket, with all stuff for her when she's pregnant, and not for the baby!
In the basket I included: Magazines (trashy, of course!), stretch-mark cream, cooling foot spray, face masks, pregnancy book, baby name book, a mummy mug, a bump gift pack (including bubble bath, pregnancy shampoo (?? I don't know what's different in it to ordinary shampoo!) and a couple of other bits and bobs), a wee pot of vaseline, choc dip, tea-light holder, "baby powder" tea-lights (they smell gorgeous!), a wedge pillow and most important of all - a box of chocolates!
And, of course, I made the tag.
The image is one I've had for years and had never used called "Baby Bump" by Sassy Studio Designs. I coloured her with the following copics: Skin: E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair: E31,29,09,08. Top: R59,39,37,29,27. Trousers: 100,W9,7,5.
The sentiment is computer generated using the free font called "Rebekah's Birthday" and a few bits gone over with a red copic.
The papers are from the Carta Bella book "Giddy Up". I mounted it on white card that I doodled on and then on a hand-made kraft tag that also got some doodling treatment. I used a Tim Holtz Alterations die for the scallops on the tag and the ribbon is from my stash.
The back of the tag has a Pink Gem Design sentiment stamped on it and a bit more doodling by yours truly.
So there you go, I hope you liked it and that you'll pop over to see what the rest of the talented Pink Team have got up to this week at Eclectic Ellapu!
