It's a boy...........

Well, for those of you who check out my sister Val's blog you will know that we have a new addition to the family in the form of baby Charlie who arrived safely on Saturday weighing 7lbs 10oz.  Mother, baby and father all okay!!!!  lol

I have made two new baby cards, one of which is here - I will post the other later in the week.

I have used the gorgeous digi stamp from Sugar Nellie called Bambino.  I coloured him in using Flexmarkers and then got my sewing machine out to stitch the image onto backing card.  I then pieced the backing card together (from my stash) and stitched that as well.  Then this was put onto an 8x8 card blank.  The sentiments were computer generated on CraftArtist; the top one punched out and matted using Stampin Up punches and the bottom one used Spellbinders Ornate Frames - the cut outs from the sides I added to the top and bottom of the frame for a different look.  I've added gems, flowers, hat pins and ribbon and the last touch were two baby feet punched out using a Dovecraft punch.

Thanks for dropping by.


  1. I saw the news on Val's blog - this card is lovely and I like the use of the stitching to fix the layers. Nice to have personal details on the tags too.
