It's a boy!

Ah ha - this one is not actually for anyone at work for a change!  Although Sarah at work is due very soon so I'll no doubt be making another baby card soon.

This image is one of my favourites for a baby boy card - Just Arrived from Lili of the Valley.  I've used ProMarkers to colour and a Spellbinders die to cut.

The design papers are Lili of the Valley/NitWit Collections - Winter Wishes.  So yes it seems you do need to check out Christmas looking papers stashes because you never know what might be in there :)  I've also used some brown plain DP to back the patterned blue papers.

The blue gingham ribbon is from Lili of the Valley shop - with a hand tied bow!  Which was a bit of a challenge as I decided I wanted to add a silver dummy charm from The Ribbon Girl in the middle if it.  If someones not challenging me it appears I make my own up.  After much faffing I finally managed to sort it.

I tend to use BABY with my scrabble blocks so this time I thought I'd go for a change with the sentiment.

The final thing added are some white self adhesive gems bought it Hobby Craft.

Wonder if I'll manage to get some stock built up of baby cards now.

Blogging this has been a little tricky tonight as my chinchilla has been running across the keyboard - obviously not giving her enough attention!

Have a good weekend
