Welcome, little bundle of joy
My niece, Jane, is expecting a baby in just over a month's time and, as we already know that it will be a boy, I wanted to get a card made.
She already has 2 little girls by her previous marriage, but this baby will be the first boy in the family for about 18 years and he is to be named William, after his grandfather (my brother in law) who sadly passed away last year.
I can't remember the last time I had a 'new baby' card to make for our family, suffice to say it was a long, long time ago, so I thoroughly enjoyed making this one for sweet William.
The adorable image was kindly sent to me by a crafting friend, Cathy, after I had fallen in love with it on one of her cards, so I have no idea where it originally came from I'm afraid.
* Papers - Raspberry Road Designs 'My Baby Love - Boy'
* Sentiment tag - K & Co 'vellum sentiments'
* Nestabilities - Scalloped Ovals
* Everything else from my stash
One of the things I have been wanting to do for some time, is to make some slightly different shaped cards. This one is a poor copy of a style frequently used by another of my crafting friends, Irene, on her stunning cards and was made by cutting an A4 sheet width ways and then joining it at the side to make a 'landscape' A5 card.
Having searched some of the card challenges, I think I can enter this card for the following ones:
SophistiCat #26 - 'New Beginnings'
Crafty Creations #59 - 'Spots & Dots'
Creative Card Crew #46 - 'Going Dotty'
Ooh La La #49 - 'Anything Goes'
I apologise for not blog hopping for a little while, but I'm hoping to catch up with you all in the next couple of days. I've been having a lot of neck pain recently, so have been limiting my time on the PC (you already knew I was a pain in the neck didn't you? LOL!) add to this that I pulled my back a couple of days ago and you have some idea of the sort of mess I'm in at the moment.
Thank you for continuing to leave comments for me, I find them so encouraging (and I need lots of that at the moment!)
