Welcome Baby Girl!

Good evening all.

I'm back from a relaxing couple of days away, weather wasn't too bad and we managed to dodge the odd showers. I've been on tenterhooks all weekend though as I had limited wifi and Shery our lovely boss and owner at STAMPlorations had gone into labour on Friday....us girls have been getting a tad excited over our imminent STAMPbaby.

Fabulous news.....a happy, healthy little STAMPbaby named Kathryn Corazon was born last night. Congratulations to the Russ family!

To celebrate us STAMPloration girls are having a surprise blog hop.

Here's my card:

Background is made with distress paints and an acrylic block. Dies from Wplus9 and Spellbinders. Stamps are all from STAMPlorations Heaven Sent set. Finished with some sequins.

Do pop over to the blog to see what the other girls have made and feel free to join us to celebrate this happy little event.

Challenges entered:
