Baby steps.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
Another late one at work tonight so hopefully some commenting time before i go in.
The plasterer has done my bedroom, it just needs some new skirting board now and then just repapering.My lino man also came so my bathroom is looking better apart from we had to take the new door off so i am waiting for my uncle to come back and retrim it.
So enough of my waffle and on to my card which i am entering into the following challenges:
1.In The Pink Challenge - Challenge 40 - Kiddies corner or babies
3.Card Mania Challenge - Challenge 43 - Lace and pearls
4.Just Inspirational Challenge - Monochromatic

Products used are:
White card
Papers i have forgot the name of :S
Pearls
Lace
Pink Ribbon
Woodware sentiment stamp
LOTV baby shoes stamp
Hobbyhouse crystal gem
Hearts embossing folder
Distress tool

A close up of the sweet shoes, which i have paper pieced.

and a sideways view.

And finally a pic of my poor glur gun, i really do put this through it paces and for just £7 it has been worth its weight in gold but as you can see its now beyond help, the nozzle has moved out of line with the glue stick because the plastic has all broken off so hubby kindly came home with a new one for me :D
The exact same make just nice and shiny and new.
Thanks so much for popping by, it means a lot/
Hugs Nic.

Gorgeous card Nic. Such cute little shoes. I also had to buy a new glue gun (again) but mainly because I keep dropping them. They fall off the craft table when I am using them.

Fab idea Nic. I have a friend expecting 4 babies and this would be perfect with 4 sets of shoes - I may "borrow" your idea if you don't mind. Precious work as always - sweet little details, lots of yummy layers, and a stunning result. Glad your house remodeling is going well too - can't wait to see pictures. Poor little glue gun! It is sad to say good bye to old friends like this. Hugz!

Totally giggling at your glue gun, mine is in a similar state of disrepair after I forgot I left it on one night and a bit of the end melted before I realised I had left it on!!!
