The one with the new arrival!

Hi all, hope you've all having a good weekend. So, January is a funny old month isnt it, with Christmas over and done with and aaaages till pay day, but we have reason to celebrate in the 1HLC house as the hubby's son and his wife have a beautiful baby daughter.......Kari Erin arrived just after 5pm on Wednesday weighing in at a bonny 8lb 4.  Sadly, as they are way up in the North of Scotland and we are down in the south-east of England I dont know exactly when we will be able to get up to meet her, but im saving up the cuddles!

As yet,  I dont have a photo to share with you, but I do have the card that I've made!

Couldnt resist this gorgeous Pink Gem image, which i've coloured with promarkers. The paper is from Bo Bunny, the border section is a cheery lynn die and the tag is a memory box die - these are also new addtions, so to speak!

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
pink gem - new beginnings
my time to craft - its all about the new
crafty ribbons - new beginnings
cute card thursday - something new

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, and I'll be back with a new Cutie Pie challenge tomorrow xx
