All Our Dreams

Here is another of the fabulous stamps which was released yesterday and is available online at Lili of the Valley, this wee cutie is called "All our Dreams" and the sentiment is included free.

A side view, funny how colours change with angle of light or perhaps my lack of photography skills.

A wee close up of the free sentiment, image and flowers.

I love this sentiment, sooo true!

I have coloured this adorable image with copics, highlighted the spots with liquid pearls and cut out with my nesties.

Flowers are available from Wild Orchid Crafts and have been glittered with stickles, lace from my stash.

All OUR dreams came true on 2/11/11 with the birth of Jessica, our very 1st granddaughter born at 23.36 and weighing 6lbs 12.5oz. She is so beautiful and looks like her brother Daniel, we can´t wait to see her in the flesh and get loads of cuddle time which unfortunately is on hold until both hubby and I are on the mend.

Isn´t she a wee darling!
