I have a very special post today.
Freshly Made Sketches is having a blog hop for Rita and because Lesley knows we are such good friends she asked if I’d like to be a part of the hop too.
Of course I was thrilled to wish her a big Congratulations and Best Wishes along with the rest of her friends on the team.
If you have come from the wonderful Jennifer Timko’s blog, “Welcome” you’re in the right place.
This is the sketch we had to work with. It is actually the last sketch Rita made for FMS before taking maternity leave.
I know Rita is having a girl but I also know she doesn’t like pink very much (although I have noticed she’s been using it a lot more lately, perhaps carrying a little girl does that to you?) So I dressed “Laila” in purple.
I also know that Rita has chosen a grey and yellow colour scheme for Laila’s room. So I wanted to incorporate those colours into my card for her.
My card will be flying all the way to Texas very soon. I hope she likes it.
Stamps : All our dreams (Lili of the valley), Whimsical words
Card : basic grey, white, x-press it, subtles dsp stack, neutral dsp stack
Ink : memento black, stazon, baja
Other : nesties, big shot, subtles buttons, square punch, scallop trim border punch, copics, white pen
I’d also like to send Rita this Irish Blessing:
May the sun shine, all day long,
everything go right, and nothing wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you,
and may all the wishes you wish come true!

Big hugs and kisses and my very best wishes Rita!
