Red & White - Midway Reminder

I hope you're sitting down for this card because you might just fall over otherwise!!! I've been wanting to use Love Heart Billie for ages but just never had the opportunity...until now :-D I'm not going to say anything until after the pictures and you've picture yourself up off the floor lol. 

Ready??? Here's my mid-way reminder...

I loved Sally's Love Heart Billie card which you can see here and thought I would borrow her idea of adding the sentiment to the heart which I managed to do in Photoshop...I totally impressed myself as it turned out perfectly lol. Once I added the sentiment I saved it to my file then imported and sized it in Microsoft Word as usual. As always I used my Copics to colour the image...just don't look too close!

What do you thunk? 

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Artisitic Inspirations - Lots of Layers
Cutie Pie Challenge - Lots of Layers
Digi Makeover Challenge - Celebrations
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Celebrate the Occasion - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments - Letter B (Bear, Bow)

I'll add the inside sentiment closer to the date. Closer to the date I hear you say??? Well, as you know I am notoriously late with the majority of my friends and families cards OR I'm making them at 11 the night before. I don't know if you remember when Nicole and Ben got married but it was May 26. Today is April 30th.... if you take into account I made this two days ago this card is TWENTY-EIGHT days EARLY peeps!!! Can you believe it??? Nor can I but I'm going with it rofl. The trick now is to remember I've made them a card AND where I've put it for safe keeping lol. 

It will be a week on Monday that I will be a Glam ma' as the Ladybugs have decided I should be called lol.  Well, Nic is due that day (13th) but babies come when they're good and ready though Nic's MIL, myself, her friend's mom and her friend's husband have predicted she will have it on the 12th. OMG...I'm just so excited and I'm almost positive I've already told you this more than once lol.

I'm off to start and finish these place cards...please slap me if I ever accept another wedding commission hmph!

Catch ya later x

PS Make sure you keep checking in this week as I've got a bit of news for you!!

I thought it wan't long now until the baby arrived. Exciting times. I bet when it is here you will sit looking into the cot/pram for hours on end staring. hugs xx

Alison Scott said...

Wonderful card. So sweet.
Better set up TV now for all the shows you watch, cos when baby comes you're not watching TV, you'll be watching the baby! Honestly it's better than any show. I barely watch TV now as I lost track of them all when Ellie was born. ;-)

Fabulous card Kerry, love the layout and the little bear.
Can't believe it is so close to the Grand Event, start making the card now, do one in pink and one in blue then you are well sorted as when the day comes you will be too excited to think about a card.
