Third baby card!

This is the third baby card that I've finished for my grandson-to-be. Started with a gatefold card blank, matted papers onto front and back, inside from "New Arrivals" from Forever Friends, and the front from stash. The die-cuts on the front include Nesties - Lace Doilly - and the stork and baby are from Joycraft. The sentiment belongs to the image inside, and are from Lili of the Valley- Sweet Dreams. Edging cut with Martha Stewart punch. Inside I coloured the image with promarkers, and matted onto a blue pearlescent paper embossed with dots, and onto silver mirri embossed the same. The lace trim underneath matches the front edges. The teddy blanket is from Meiflower, and the letters, the horse and the pin are from a baby set of wooden diecuts from Handy Hippo. The bunting is made with a "New Arrivals" stamp, ribbon from Joanna Sheen, charm and stars from stash. The back is paper from N.A as before, matted onto card, and the same punched edge. I then made an envelope from vellum, to put the greeting in, embossing the edges, and a piece of irridiscent cord to close it. Finished with silver candi and stickles.
Talking about grandsons, I've had my four-year old grandson, Oscar all day today, and am absolutely frazzled after spending the afternoon outside with him. Firstly we moved the electric fence for the horses, then I had to push him around the paddock on his tractor, as it was a bit rough for him to pedal! Oh, my poor back. Then we did the stables, and he rode his bike around, so was I glad when mummy came just after tea-bless him. All for today. Keep smiling x


  1. Wow, you're going great guns. I bet you enjoyed today though, even if you are frazzled now. Hazel x

    1. Thanks Hazel, yes, I did, and again, I hope you got the longer reply. I don't understand all these different ways to reply, but I'll get there!! x
