Baby Blue

Hello.  Welcome.  So yesterday my friend says 'I'm coming in tomorrow to get a baby card from you'.  'For a boy.'   Uhhhhhhhh, right......   So I looks through my box.  Nope, no baby card.  So I looks through my other box!  Nope!!  Plenty christmas cards.  Didn't realise I had made so many already this year.  But no baby cards, and definitely no baby boy cards.  So, up with the cockerel today.   About 9am LOL.  My rooster likes his perch!!  Suits me fine.  Checked my blog for inspration.  1 label for baby!!  No!!  Surely I've made more than one baby card in the last 3 years?  Obviously the label maker has slipped up.  So I had a quick look around blogland and spotted a lovely sketch over at Verve Stamps.  Perfect.  So here we go, a baby boy card

I started with a DCWV square embossed square card base.  I added a torn pp strip vertically and Cheery Lynn Tiny Bubbles Border horizontally.  My topper is a Cheery Lynn Waltzing Matilda Doily backed with dark blue paper.  I cut the circles with Sizzix circle dies and backed with lace.  The teddy is from Stamplorations Heaven Sent coloured with distress ink.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
