Hello Little Baby!


Hello there!

It's been a rainy overcast weekend so I've managed time at my craft desk which has been very productive!

An old school friend of mine has just had a baby boy after trying for more than 12 years!  I am so thrilled for her that they are now finally a family after welcoming a beautiful baby boy!  So, of course a baby card was in order to send over to the UK to offer my congratulations!

These adorable stamps from PWCO have proven to be an absolute essential staple to my stamp collection, especially for making adorable baby cards!  This giraffe is one of my favourites for sure.  I stamped it first on the white then again on the yellow cardstock and cut it out, glueing it on top.  The rest of the card is CASed from a project I saw on Pinterest.  The papers, ribbon, button & sentiment are all from my stash.  I used a Darice embossing folder for the bottom panel.  Sentiment is from SU!

Some challenges I am entering:-

One Stitch at a Time Challenge - Anything Goes with 4 Legged Friends
Inspiration Destination Challenge - Always Anything Goes
Brown Sugar Challenge - Buttons & Bows
Just Add Ink - Card for Male
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Bingo (Ribbon/Lace / Blue / Buttons)

Thanks for visiting me over at my blog!  I always love seeing you here and if have left me a comment, I thank you with much gratitude and will hop on over and take a peek at your lovely blog!  That's all from me for now so until next time .... happy crafting!!

Hugs, Danielle x
