Baby blue

Good morning folks. Another frosty one here today with rain expected later.
Might just have to catch up on my ironing and perhaps squeeze in a little crafting time.

I've a card to show you that I made for a new baby boy.  It is very similar to a baby girl card I made last year that was a favourite of mine.  I had bought two pads of the Graphic 45 Little Darlings Collection....so I wouldn't freak when I used up these gorgeous papers....yes, I do have a problem :)  But in all honesty this is the only company I buy 2 pads of their collections.. and only if I really, really love the set.  


Spellbinders Grand Labels One used to cut the shape (before my Grand Calibur bit the dust), Spellbinder Antique Frame and Accents dies for the frame and edge.  Ribbons all from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and "Baby" is a Marianne Creatables Die.

I will be entering the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by,
Hugs,

A real stunner Pat it would be a family heirloom its so gorgeous! I have 3 Graphic 45 pads now and won't cut any of them! I really have my eye on Secret Garden so maybe the answer is to buy two but I don't know if that would help me!! Hugs Susan x

Gorgeous card Pat... perfect for the challenge at Here Come The Boys, btw :-) Nice papers, and I love the die cuts. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your sweet comments too - we think the babies are gorgeous (of course) and we are so glad to have them as my son and dil were together for more than 11 years before they had them so we thought it would never happen, so glad it did :-) Donna xx
