Sweet Vintage Baby

Hello, it's Bridget here today!  Only a few more days until Christmas, and I'm guessing your Christmas cards are all made and sent, so I've got a vintage baby card for you today.  I love the Vintage Baby set - the images are so easy to use and this one in particular is very easy to color even you don't feel that confident about coloring.  It was also very easy to mask with a stamped image on a post-it-note so that I could sponge around the image with Distress ink while still in the Nestie.  All panels have been stitched and I added some lace and pearls to help with the vintage look.  The rose has been sponged with SU's Blushing Bride ink to match and the bow is jute twine made by American Crafts.
And on the subject of baby cards, don't forget to check out The Gift of You, a set Korin's designed in her series of Stamp Sets for a Cause - the sentiments celebrate the joy of adoption and help support orphans in Henan, China!
I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful and special time with your loved ones this Christmas, and a time of remembering WHO this holiday is all about - the Lord Jesus.  But I also know that many have had bereavements, sickness and seriously difficult times this year, which make the holiday's very hard - thinking of you who are in those situations too.
Love and hugs all the way from Northern Ireland, Bridget
