Lil Birdie!

I bought a lil birdie stamp a while ago - I thought it was a bargain at 99p! So I put it to use to make some baby-themed projects - it seems that everyone I know is having babies right now!

I made this card for my friend who had her first baby, Elaina, in February, using some of the many pretty bits I had left from the February Sarah's Cards kit.Lil Miss Ellie became a "big cuz" for the first time in the same month, with her daddy's brother and his partner giving birth to their first baby, Harvey, in the same month. So my sister asked me if I could decorate a basket for her to fill with baby goodies and wrap in ribbons and pretty cellophane as a welcome gift from Ells Bells. It was really quick to do. I altered the free digi tag to the right size and colour in Photoshop, printed it out, mounted it onto kraft, popped on his name using Pink Paislee alpha stickers, and thread some ribbon through it. I then topped it off with lil birdie, and it made a sweet gift once it was laden with the baby-themed bounty!

This week has been the start of my Easter three week break! And although I have loads of uni work to be getting on with, I'm hoping to spend a good amount of time relaxing and getting creative :)
Hop you;re all having a good week xxx
