Mother-to-be card and gift

Hello again,
wow, 2 posts on the same day... must be on a roll!
I have a very dear friend who I met when I first moved to England and we have kept in touch ever since. She is now pregnant with her second and very much wanted child. She's over the moon as they've been trying for a long time. I am thrilled for her and when I saw this image it so reminded me of her!! She has hair a bit like the lady, the dress would be something she'd wear and she loves purple, so I had to colour her in purple!
And to make her smile I also made a little suitcase to match and added a pack of Thorntons chocolate "Moments" in - a perfect fit!

Here's the card on it's own, Basic Grey Wisteria again, love those papers! I used a Martha Steward punch on the lower part, SU sentiment stamp and paper roses from the Poundstore again. Image is coloured with Copics as usual... *lol*

And this is the little suitcase on its own...isn't it sweet? I used a template from Lauren Meader as I was too buried in work to make the template up myself (although it's not that difficult, I am lazy! *ggg*).
Hope you like my creations and thanks if you decide to leave a comment!

*** UPDATE: I am so silly, it took a comment from my sweet friend Julie to realise I completely forgot to tell who the gorgeous image is from!! It's another beauty from Tammy at Adayfordaisies and you can find her images on and some on her website which hopefully will be updated soon to include all of her lovely digi stamps! Sorry for forgetting to put the name on!***
