Baby Dan

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all well and managing to catch a bit of sunshine in between the rain showers we have been having. I have a baby card to share with you today using a super cute DigiStamp Boutique image called 'Baby Dan'

To start I cut an aperture from my card using the largest die from Spellbinders Labels One set which I then backed with some aqua gingham paper from Buddly Crafts. I sized Baby Dan to fit inside the aperture and printed out onto super smooth card. I coloured him up with my Promarkers, fussy cut him out and attached him with foam pads.
I added a computer generated message and some LOTV tags, ribbon and charm from stash and also a few little dew drop type gems which I came across during my ongoing craft room re-organisation (I say ongoing because so far it has taken weeks ! not helped by the fact I keep getting sidetracked by goodies I had forgotten I had ;) ) I forgot to photograph the inside of the card but I decorated it to match using the same gingham paper and the label shape cut to make the aperture.

Before I go I wanted to share a photo of the card my 3 yr old granddaughter Freya made to give her Mum on her birthday this week....Freya sees me doing my blog and I'm always looking at all of you lovely crafty friends blogs and asked me if I could put a picture of her card on my 'game' as she calls it so how could I refuse ?

She was very proud of her work which I'm sure you can guess is a picture of her and her mummy, she even punched the flowers herself using a woodware punch. I wrote the sentiment for her in pencil and she traced it with her pen :)

Thats all for now
Hugs Kaz xxx

Your new baby card is adorable, but I'm afraid it's totally upstaged by Freya's work of art. I hope she continues to craft and draw as she's definitely talented x

Hi Kaz

Love your card .. .. Baby Dan is my favourite baby boy image and he get used lots here in the House of Hearts.

So lovely to have all the baby details on the card front too.

I also love the card Freya made for her Mum. That is definitely one for the memory box! I bet she loved seeing it on your "game". LOL!!

Hope all is well with you and you are having a lovely weekend.

Love Jules xx
