~just love~

Good afternoon crafty friends! I hope you are all well.

Still 3 weeks until baby is due, but I have started telling myself it could be any day now! Got my hospital bag packed, baby 'stuff' all washed and set up... only things left to do are install the car seat (why I keep putting this off I don't know...) and pack a bag for the girls to take to the grandparents in case we need to make the trip to the hospital in the night.

I have to show you a card I made based on Laura's lovely sketch #57

and found my colour inspiration over at EtsyInspired challenge #98. I love this little purse from EmenGees Designs.

Also entering it at Raise the Bar #28 for the distressed, torn, ripped or broken challenge
and The Shabby Tea Room, week #20 which is: 1 ribbon, 2 buttons and 3 punches or dies.

After all that, here is my card!

Thanks for stopping by, and if you haven't already please check out my little blog candy, you can find the link to the post just below my blog title :)
