Hello Little Baby

      I received an e-mail this week-end that my niece (in New Zealand) had her second daughter. She was due to have the baby on December 29th, but that little bundle just didn't want to be a December baby!!  (She was 17 days late!)

     My Sister-in-law left Canada the middle of December and was my courier for Christmas and baby gifts. This is the tag I made to go onto the gift bag I sent (filled with little pink clothes!!)

     The little monkey is from a set called Itzie Inkies Flower Power from C.C. Designs.  I stamped and coloured the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and copic markers. I also added a little dab of Yellow Stickles to the centers of each of the daisies.
     A Nestabilites die was used to cut out the three layers. The largest layer was white cardstock that I stamped using Papertrey Ink's Polka Dots Basics in pink and the next layer was a piece of polka dot paper I had left over from another project. All of the layers were sponged with the pink ink.
Three little pearls were placed just below the sentiment (from Stampin'Up).

Tag Details:
Stamps: C.C.Designs Itzie Inkies Flower Power; PTI Polka Dot Basics; 
SU Sweet Little Sentiments
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black;  CTMH Hollyhock.
Papers: Bella white cardstock; polka dot paper from my scrap box
Other Supplies: copic markers; Nestabilities Label #11; pink eyelet; 
pink ribbon; mini pearls; Yellow Stickles

Here's the matching card I sent along for the new parents. 

Details for this card can be found here.

     I made a baby girl and baby boy card earlier this year - one of them went to a niece who had a baby boy in August and this one went to New Zealand in anticipation of baby girl's arrival. 

Have a great day. Thanks for taking time to visit.
