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.

Till next time


  1. What a beautiful card for your friend, Rachel - and I'm super-impressed that you're making cards with such a little bub. CONGRATULATIONS on becoming a Mum - wow, a big development since I last visited your blog!! Sounds like Alex is being very good. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week. Take good care of yourself. x

  3. This is such an adorable baby card Rachel! Love your use of this DSP - I found some of this gorgeous DSP too in my stash the other day. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!

  4. First up - Congratulations to you....what an exciting and lovely time. I know it's extremely tiring but so worth it.
    Lovely that you have had time to put this card together - I love the way you have done the background and used the ribbon. Chantell JAI
