A New Baby In The Family

Earlier this month my nephew and his wife welcomed their first child into the world. I'm sure you can work out they had a little girl and called her Zoe - LOL. Unfortunately they live in Sydney so I haven't been able to give my beautiful great-niece a cuddle yet - but I did get a special ornament and card made for her. I used Mo Manning's adorable Baby Girl (with straight wispy hair) and chose similar elements on both the card and in the ornament.
I used one of the photos my nephew sent us of baby Zoe and changed it to B&W before printing it onto some textured cardstock as I didn't want it to look like a standard photo. I must have done a reasonable job as my nephew didn't recognise his own daughter at first - thinking the picture of baby in the bauble was a model - LOL. 

Copics used - R20, R11, R05, R02, R01, R00, R000, E42, E41, E40, E13, E11, E00, E000, B000, B0000, W2, W1, W00, RV000

Wow! This is soooooo special ... and I can tell that oceans of love went into the creation! Thanks so much for the amazingly beautiful Christmas Card I received in the mail! (I am featuring it on my blog tomorrow ... I hope you don't mind!) I am so in awe! And ... am so wanting to start a Copic collection. (Am I brave enough to take the plunge?)
I probably won't be back again before Christmas ... so I just wanted to pass on my love and best wishes for a very special Christmas ~ take care & stay safe!! I will be back to visit in 2012. (Gav is having a break between Xmas & New Year.)
All my love, Andrea xxx

Congratulations on the birth of your great niece, she's lovely.
Love the bauble you made using her photo and the gorgeous card, Two lovely keepsakes!

Naomi Feigl said...

Thank you so much, Debbie. This gift means a lot to us - I got a bit a teary when I opened it up. I've hung up the bauble in Zoe's room, and the card is on our mantle - so sweet. You are talented, for sure, but it's also the thought you put into it that makes it so special.
Merry Christmas xo
