New Baby Card

Happy Bankholiday Monday to you all. If you are blogging and crafting I can only assume the weather where you are is not that good.

Anyway - I got a text last Thursday morning from a second cousin (well I think that's what you call your cousin's child????) to tell us that his partner had just given birth to a new baby boy. We knew he was on his way and that he would be called George but I hadn't thought about a card for him. I had seen a great sketch at CCEE stampers that gave me the impression of quilting so I used it to make this card.

I used papers from my box of bits and printed the fab horse which was a freebie from Becky's Place and coloured it in with Promarkers. I used a nesties die to cut it out and edged it with tumbled glass and faded jeans before hitting the whole thing with the sewing machine. Boy was I pleased with the result. The sentiment I made in Word and printed onto some of the patterned paper. Even if I say it myself - it's not bad eh?

Hint - check back on Thursday for more sewing and be prepared for the next MAWTT challenge.

Hope you bankholiday weekend has been going well. I had hoped for at least and end of summer feel to the weather , instead it's been more like mid autumn. Can it improve to an Indian Summer we ask????? Hope so.

Take care. Luv B xxxx
