Welcome Baby Ella!

Good Evening Everyone,  It feels like ages since I last posted so I hope you are all well.  I've attempted to keep up with all your news and creations over the last few days, but I'm afraid I've been really tired and not that fit for much after a days work.  I think one reason might be that my diabetes is a little out of control, higher blood sugar levels than I would like and not wanting to increase my insulin if at all possible has left me with very little energy.  After spending the last six months being extremely careful with my carb intake and reducing my insulin by a huge amount, I don't want to increase it  again.  Anyhow, I managed to get a card made today.

I would like to welcome my new followers, it's great to have you visit me and I hope you will enjoy my work, and my little stories and perhaps find a little inspiration.  I know I do when I visit other blogs.

I was asked to make a card for a new baby and it had to be quite girlie, so here it is;
Well, as you can see she is in shades of pink.  I've used a lovely MO Manning digi stamp and coloured with Promarkers and Flex-markers.  First Edition Papers, co-ordination card, WO carnations, charm, pearls and lace from The Ribbon Girl, Frosted lace Sparkle.

I would like to enter this card into "Flowers and Sketch"

I'm off now for a cuppa, and a look at the BAFTA's just in case I can spot Will.
Have a good night all

Sorry to hear you can't get your blood sugar levels to come down to a good count, hope it will soon.

This baby card is beautifull and girlie, but that's how it should be.

Take care. Hazel
