Baby Stroller

 Yes I know I’ve been missing but I will explain later in the post. First though a baby card I made for the latest addition to my family and after so many boys we now have a girl.

I used a LOTV image and paper piece the pushchair. The sentiments are from Simon says Stamp and I think the flowers are theirs too. Did go overboard on the flowers must remind myself less is more.

I’ve been missing because I had a belated Birthday with my brothers and as many nieces and nephews that were available nearly all have families of their own. My sister and her family were going to her sons but that fell through due to COVID and they gatecrashed which was a lovely surprise.

So the previous weeks we been giving the house a good sort and my craft room desk was cleared to make way for a bar. Now I need to return my craft room back but the party has left me exhausted, a good exhausted but I’m doing a little at a time so this time next week I should be up and maybe not running but definitely hobbling.

Trio Papers Birthday

 I haven’t given up on my blog but I have a rush job making a blanket with a deadline. I can now show you my brothers card.  

I sought out the Woodward Birthday stamp stamped it on different coloured papers and added some Birthday balloons using an old Penny Black die. The numbers and the today was cut out using a die I brought from a craft show many years ago.

I had a go at splatters trying hard not to splatter too much, must remember less is more.

Cute Critters

 Well I can show this card now since it’s been received. The critters are MFT which I layered to give a 3D look. The numbers were cut from my old Cricut since I don’t have dies that big. I did layered the them a bit to help them stand out too.

Since the recipient is male I kept it simple.
