Mum to be....

Hi everyone, this is later than usual for me cos of silly blogger!!!
I have already typed this post up once today and scheduled it for 7pm.
Looked on my IPad at 7.15 to find that it hadnt posted so tried to do it manually from there and then silly blogger just deleted the whole post!!!! Grrrrrrrr...
I have switched to the new interface but so far can not get it to successfully schedule a post, seems to either post straight away or not at all.  Anyone else got the new interface working properly??

Anyway todays card is using mother to be 1 from mos digital pencil.
I have coloured the image with copics and used my sewing machine for stitching.
The papers are from nitwits and the flowers and seam binding are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have used lots of Cheery Lynn dies on this card, butterfliesFrench Pastry doilyfanciful flourish and the heart.  The wooden heart on top of the Cheery Lynn one was coloured with copics.
The card is 8x8.






I would like to say a big welcome to all my new followers, great to have you here....
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Mos Digital Pencil - I see spots (on the papers)
Cute Card Thursday - Spring Flowers
CES Challenges - Paper Piece it (the skirt is paper pieced)
Paper Sundaes - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin Challenge - Girly but no pink (minor miracle for me!!!!)

I hate the new interface with a passion Catherine, lol. Its all too cluttered and I can't find what I want half the time. Ive been trying to add photos all night to a blog post and it won't work at all! No point in posting the post without the photos so I will just have to wait until its fixed. Anyway, enough of my moaning about blogger, this card is really beautiful. I love the image. Lee x
