Today is a good day! Sod the broken washer-dryer and sod the rainy weather...today is a good day! Exactly one year ago I got to hold the most precious bundle, my gorgeous little baby girl Chloe' for the first time in my arms! I remember sitting on my hospital bed, holding her and just looking at her promising her the world and not wanting to let go. What a special time it was and today we celebrate that special moment! In one year she has shown me what loving someone really mean and made me smile even when I didn't feel like it. She's grown from the helpless little soul in my arms into a clever, funny, cheeky, beautiful and loving little person. I am so grateful for every hug and giggle and for her being here with us, in our little family. Her big sister Isabella has been a darling and has been a great supporter of her little sibling. I'm so proud of them both!
I'd like to say a big thank you to my friends Donna and Aunty Sue who thought of her today and made stunning cards for Chloe'...
How gorgeous are they!! Thank you very much, Ladies, it touched my heart and these cards will be treasured so one day when she can read she can be reminded of her special day and that you were a part of it. xxx

I made a really fun card for Chloe' and used the gorgeous Marianne Design paper pack...
It's not an ordinary card, it is a never-ending card!! So many looks in one card! What the most people don't know is that when you turn it back to front and then start folding you get a totally different set of looks! So cool! I couldn't put anything dimensional or some glitter or other fancy embellishments on it (they would be tasted for sure!!) so it is embellished only using the gorgeous papers and coordinating die cuts and some sponging. Bare in mind that this is an interactive card so it is made of a 300gsm cardstock. Trust me, it otherwise wouldn't last long. :) I want her to have a go and play with it or at least show her and create a bit of fun for her. Daddy's coming home early today so we can have a bit of fun in the afternoon. :)
TIP: there are plenty of youtube videos on how to make one so go ahead and try it, it's easier than you think! Also, cut your decorative papers a hair smaller than your card panels so when it gets bent they don't get crinkled... guess how I know!!
Thank you for stopping by! Have a lovely day and a fab weekend!
