Stack It Up

Hello there, ready for the weekend?  I am scheduling this as I have gone to London with my daughter to stay with my son and grandsons until Monday.  We are all going to the big Baby Show tomorrow.  Thank you all for your kind comments regarding my daughter's hospital visit yesterday. It all went well and we have a really in depth plan for the birth and following days.  She will have to stay in hospital for 4 - 5 days following the birth.  They have a mother and baby unit at Wythenshaw - the only one in the Northwest - should she need to be admitted but I am hoping and praying that it won't be needed but we were shown around it yesterday.

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Card Makin' Mamas and the theme is Stack It Up - we want to see 3 or more layers.  Here is my card:

The image is a rubber stamp from Unity which I have coloured with Copics.  The papers are a digital set called I've got Sunshine by Traci Reed at Sweet Shoppe Designs.  I have used the following dies:  Dienamics Pierced Rectangle Stax, Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders, Go Kreate Tag, Cheery Lynn Large, Medium and Miniature Rose and Marianne Leaf.  The ribbon and sentiment are from my stash.  The sign with the quote on it comes with the paper set. Here is another view:

Please go over to Card Makin' Mamas and see the rest of the Design Team and for more details of the challenge.

Thank you so much for looking today and for any comments you may leave, it is always lovely to read them all! Take care xx

Gorgeous Susan - I just love the colours. Hope all goes well with your daughter - pregnancy is such a time of happy anticipation but it's also such a worry when it's your own daughter. With my birth experiences I was relieved that my daughter had to have a Caesarian section - sad but true! Hugs Judith
