Thump thump...thump thump...thump thump

Nicole had an appointment at the hospital yesterday for blood tests and an ultrasound. Ben videoed the ultrasound on his phone and Whatsapped it to me....Cue the tissues lol. It's been a lot of years since I've heard a baby's heart beat...23 to be exact...and it was the most amazing thing and brought back memories of the scans I had with my three. My grandbaby's heart beat was so strong and rhythmic and that's when I fell in love...silly huh. We're at just over 15 weeks and now we can talk about Nic's pregnancy time is going by a bit quicker :-D

Today's card was for my SIL in Dublin ... the last of my run of cards of November 4, 5, 6 & 7!!!!

I've used Celebrate from Floral Delight Too...colored with my Copics. I love these papers from MME's The Sweetest Thing :-D

Lots of Glamour Dust

I used my Die-namics Pretty Posy die and crumpled the flowers before layering them and adding a wooden flower button. I prefer this look to crisp and smooth as it adds a bit of dimension and I feel  a bit devilish adding a crumpled flower to an otherwise pristine card lol. 

I tucked the computer generated sentiment under the image after die-cutting it with Die-namics Fishtail dies

A peek at the inside...did I mention I love these papers lol???

Creative Moments - Anything Goes
Divas by Design - Use at least 2 different patterned papers

I'm trying out Power Hoop this morning at the suggestion of Suzy Q...not sure exactly what it's all about apart from using a weighted hoola hoop. Now I loved playing with my hoola hoop when I was a kidlet but somehow I think I might change my mind after today lol. Wish me luck and if I survive I'll tell you all about it!

Have a great Thursday....catch ya later x

Fabulous card, love the papers too, I really must get this image.
I was lucky enough to go with my Daughter for her scan, as her Hubby was away at sea, and I found it amaizing, as we didn't have them in my day, and I couldn't believe it when my Grandson was born how much his face looked just like the one in the scan, he's a cracker.
You have so much pleasure to look forward to.

That heart beat is magic Kerry, how amazing to hear it before your grandbaby enters this world. Lovely card and delicious flower you made. Do you have a secret stitcher, I am always in awe at your superb neat stitching...or is it the fairy stitcher :-) Bedtime nearly here and nearly the weekend.
