Nappy Cake

Well being a new mum at the moment my life has become a world of 4 Hour intervals planing my day around feeding my bub and what i can get done in the down time while he is asleep. I seem to be managing keeping the house work in check and having some extra time to myself until he's a little more active.
I have had the time this week to put together this nappy cake which i am going to give as a gift for a friend who had her baby this week.
 I have searched the web for ideas and had a look at how a friend of a friend who does these for a business while shes on maternity leave.  Its not that hard you just need to be creative in what to put in your cake teirs. I have put this together very simply with some over supply of baby stock that i have received cause you dont need 50 bibs and wraps which is what i have from presents i received from family and friends.. I just have to finsh it off and wrap up in some celophane
till next time


Just Add Ink Challenge # 145

Its been a while since I've had the chance to take a little time with a card and not just whip one up in 5 min. Its been about 5 weeks since ive had the chance to update my blog as ive been busy learning how to become Mum. We have got little Alex in a pretty good routine already and we are only getting up 2am for a feed. So im getting sleep just in 2 blocks.
 Any way ,this card  I have made for a friend who had her baby last week. I have made the card to match a nappy cake that i have also made for her which you can check out in another post.

 So i have picked these colours to match the toy Elephant in my nappy cake. Very Vanilla , Early Espresso and Buckaroo Blue (trying to use up some of my old stuff). again most of my card is made from leftovers from other cards so that im not using up all the stuff that i have (so much unopened DSP). Anyway i have used this weeks Just add Ink Sketch Challenge for my card.
