I love good news!

eGood morning on this sunny Sunday.  It's been a long while since I've blogged, my health has been a bit of a challenge lately and I've not spent a lot of time in my craft space.  However, some friends of mine from Church shared some wonderful news this week and I wanted to make a card to celebrate.  Becky and Pete are the sort of lovely couple who you know will make amazing parents, so when they announced that they are expecting their first baby, I was over the moon for them.  Here's my card:



I've used the petite pennants builder punch, because let's face it, this is an occasion that calls or bunting!  The paper is the gorgeous, now sadly retired, Everyday Enchantment Sale-a-Bration DSP.  The Celebrate sentiment is from another Sale-a-Bration freebie, Outlined Occasions, which I've coloured with the In Colour markers and blinged up with some Basic Rhinestones.  The second part of the sentiment is from another retired set called So Happy For You, made into a layered banner.

Inside, I've used In colour mats, some more bunting and a beauttiful sentiment from an American US set which fit the occasion perfectly...we very rarely get Christian sentiments in the UK, sadly.  It reads "Sharing with you the miracle of new hope and new life through the glorious gift of Christ the Lord".  Isn't that lovely?

So, I hope you like it (hope they do too!)  I'm having a little break over Easter and then I hope I'll be feeling more able to spend some time in my craft space on a regular basis.  I'll try to pop back with some Easter projects in the meantime :)

Hugs...Allie x
