MDUC #113 - Karen's sketch

Good morning, good morning, good morning. I hope that the sun is shining where ever you are in this fantastic world today.

We have a new baby to welcome into the family this week! Babies are always a very special gift to any couple, but we couldn't be happier to welcome this one in particular. My husband's gorgeous cousin had a baby boy, Dion, on Monday after a long and emotional journey with IVF. With many of my close friends having to go through this stressful process, we were so thrilled when we heard of thier success.

Welcome to the world baby Dion - you are one very lucky little man to be so wanted by two wonderful people.


Of course when I had to make a special card for little Dion :) I am heading out to the mall today with my kids to find a special pressie for him. I'm thinking a toy kangaroo, hehe.

For my card, I used the terrific sketch which is the new challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenges this week. My gorgeous friend Karen designed the sketch and I love how it turned out with my card.

Of course I had to use the cute little "Sitting Alvin" from the Spring Summer 2008 collection for my card.

The papers are MME Fine and Dandy True Blue. Cute hey? The beautiful lace is from Magnolia and the flowers are all Wild Orchid Crafts. I finally used my new Magnolia Doo Hickey dies - and I loved love love them.

I would like to enter my card into some challenges as well this week:

Well.. thanks for your visit today. Don't forget to check out my fortnightly candy (the link is in the sidebar) and also I have some gorgeous friends with Candies as well - don't forget to check them out too!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, I will be back tomorrow with something else to share,
Hugs
Kylie xx
