A new Challenge - Something New with The Crafty Pad

It's Sunday again folks!
Where does the weekend go?
And just why does it go by tens times faster than the week days!
Anyway ... Being Sunday means a new challenge at 

This week we would like you to show us 
Something New 
- So new baby, new house, new job ect ect

There is a few expected babies due to arrive around me soon so I took the opportunity to get a head start on some baby cards.  I have not made a tag and envelope in forever so I went in that direction today!

I am soo in love with this paper (I brought like 10 sheets of this!) and you might recall it from a card only a few days ago that I blogged, but it is so gorgeous and easy to play with! Love those papers when you find them, don't you? 

My image today is the beautiful Rocking Horse from The Crafty Pad Designs (It is also on sale atm for only £0.42) and I have colored it with my copics, blinged it up with some little sparkling blue gems and I off centered it on the diagonal for something different for a change, and I have to admit I really like the slight change and the different feel it gives the card.  The little baby foot brad is from my stash that I brought over a year ago and have not even used and I added some punched butterflies from blue cardstock that I distressed and the large fluttering butterfly is one from my swap that the too cute Ms Ali sent me!
I've also added some silky brown ribbon with a blue flourish print, some twine to help close the envelope and I could not resist adding the swirl with the pearls from the flower to really give it that 'antique' feel.  There is also a button on the back of the envelope to wrap the twine around for the envelope to close.  And the sentiment is another from Gingers House.
This week The Crafty Pad has another awesome random prize up for grabs! 
Joanna Sheen is offering one lucky winner a £10 voucher.
And who really can honestly say they don't love Joanna Sheen!
