Moving Along With The Times Celebrate Challenge

Good morning all and it really is a good morning, the weather is lovely. The first time the sun has shone since we have been at this holiday home and we finally have a moving date YAY. We will be moving on Monday with our furniture arriving on Tuesday. The only downside is that we can't get our phone or internet on until 11th June so I will be missing for a couple of weeks. 

Anyhow onto the matter in hand, it is my week to set the challenge at Moving Along With The Times and I chose Celebrate but NO BIRTHDAY'S so that means new baby, new home, wedding, anniversary or anything else you want to celebrate except birthdays.

The design team did a fabulous job this weeks with their creations, thank you ladies.

I set out to make a baby card for a friend that is due a little girl in a couple of weeks and first of all I remembered I didn't have any ribbon or lace here so went to buy some but all I could get was what I have added temporarily as I just don't think it works well. Then the sketch I chose had a tag element to it, which I love but I usually cut tags on my Cricut using SCAL 2 but that is on my computer which is in storage and I only brought about 5 cartridges with me and  would you believe not one of them has a tag on them. So I have made a makeshift tag for now and will change it out once I have my supplies back.
