Sweet Baby Card ...

Hello sweet blog friends ...
I know I've been absent for a while ... just things to do and a few hospital appointments to see to ... and I have at least been keeping up with visiting your blogs and seeing your beautiful creations ... I couldn't go a day without doing so ...
I just had some time to make a card for two challenges ... first up 
CR84FN24 ... with this beautiful colour palette


... and such an inspiring quote ...

and also WatzingMouse Sketch Challenge ... which I flipped



It's a beautiful day here again and I have been all over the place trying to take a decent photo of my card .. this is the best I could do ...
Here's my card ...


I printed my CS cream and used pale blue paper from Prima's Jack and Jill together with some Tim Holtz paper ... that sweet baby image is from Printable Heaven 


The flower is also Prima and the leaves I punched out ... scrunched seam binding from Bluebird Lane at Etsy ... the little button was a clear button which I altered using a little text paper and some glossy accents ... 

Have you any plans for Easter? ... I am just taking things as they come ... When my Mum was alive she always came and celebrated Easter and Christmas holidays with me ... and yes ... we saw each other practically every day .... somehow it's never the same ... but I have wonderful memories ... and many of my son with all his Easter Eggs ... Lol!
 I am thankfully for all I have ... my Husband and my Son here with me ... my family and my friends ... and my thoughts are with those less fortunate
Whatever you have planned ... I wish you all a blessed Easter ... may love and peace be with you

Till soon

What a delicate card this is, love the cute image and how you decorated it. Truly very sweet. I know what you mean, things are never the same anymore once you've lost a parent. Coming Sunday will be my father's birthday, but since my parents are no longer with us we will be commemorating in our own way. Blessings and Happy Easter to you and yours, Ira

Hi Ros, Your card is beautiful, I love the pale blue and your image! Easter is a special time, but I have no plans, My husband gets home the following Sunday! My daughter lives here as well but is always so tired on the weekend, we may do something Saturday! Sunday will be a rest day. Have a wonderful Easter.

I think that eveeryone who's giving birth would love love love to get a card like this. Its "screaming""'innocence and pure love. Ros this is such a lovely take on this challenge.
Our plans for Easter are nothing special.Both our sons are not home this weekend and I think I have a lot of time for gardening, crafting and blogging :)

28 years ago my mother came home from the hospital on Good Friday
(is this English for Friday before easter?). She knew she was coming home to die because she was diagnosed with cancer. From that moment Easter has never been the same for me......
When our sons were younger we really enjoyed Easter and I am thankful that I also have lots of wonderful and pricelss memories

Why do I just make a mess?
