Where has the time gone.........

I cannot believe that I have not blogged since February ooops. I think my mojo went on a world cruise with a slow boat to China, luckily I had made my granddaughters card before it went awol. I even tried looking at Pinterest for ideas and inspiration but my brain just did not want to know.
Thank goodness it came back as it is my great granddaughters 1st birthday on the 8th May, time goes by so quick. I had seen some onesie cards on Pinterest and thought I would have a go and make a template for one. I must admit I am quite pleased with my first attempt. Firstly I will show you the card I made for my granddaughter who loves anything purple.
I made the card shape with my own template on a 8x8 card.
all card and mirror card from stash.
Tonic dies Decorative Holly Rings.
Tonic dies Cocktail
Tonic dies Party Heels
All Occasions Happy Birthday dies.
Brittania Dies Large Rose Die.
McGill Designer Pine punch.
Ribbon from Dunelm.

I used my template on a large pre scored white card.
Then cut again on Pinflair Flower card pack which I won.
added lace and flower ribbon to edges from stash.
Sentiment made in MCS then
die cut with Spellbinders Floral Ovals.
Teddy image is from Jems Designs PeekaBoo cd
Heart jems from stash
Here is the template if you want to try it.
Take it into any graphics programme to enlarge or decrease or maybe use my measurements.
click image to enlarge the right click to save. Apologies for the black marks, did not realise my scanner wanted cleaning.
These would make fab invites for a baby shower if made smaller.
I am sorry I have not been on all your blogs of late but I needed time away. I shall do my very best to visit and leave comments for you all.
