New Baby!

Hello Everyone, I do hope you are well and having a good day. We are dull and chilly here, so not so nice weather, but hey ho, that's Scottish weather for you. 

Another quick post today,sharing a card made for my BiL's new Grandson Harrison, Jim is is thrilled as the baby is his first Grandchild. I was hoping that when Alistair was down visiting Jim last week that he would be able to see him, but that didn't work out, anyway, here is the card and box;

I used a sweet LOTV Art Card, no longer available, and cut it out with a SB die shape, paper is  by  First Edition, it's a Boy, Memory Box and Xcut dies, WO flowers and pearls, lots of glitter. Paper on box is also by First Edition and a little bow.

It was lovely to make this, not something I really do much of as there are not many people in my circle of friends who are having babies.

I thought I would show you another couple of photos from our holiday of the amazing floral arrangements made for the Flowers Festival, these were for competitions;


There were so many wonderful displays , the creativity was amazing.

Well that's me for today,  off to do a bit of ironing, groan, groan.  Enjoy your evening and see you soon,

This is beautiful Kate, a sweet image and lovely details - such a pretty new baby card.
It's dull and chilly down south today as well - it feels like we have skipped summer and gone straight to autumn!

Beautiful card Kate and a lovely touch to do a matching box which makes it more of a gift. I rarely get chance either to make new baby cards these days.
Aren't the flowers gorgeous, it's always my first port of call when we go to the Great Yorkshire show, I love looking at the arrangement they are works of art.

Have a great weekend
