Special Delivery

Hello and hope you are having a lovely weekend.  We have done all the housework this morning and I decided to treat Dave to an early Valentine present and went out and bought him a new Dyson!  I know how to treat a man!  We are going to go round to his daughter's house for dinner later so that will be nice to catch up with them and his grandchildren.

I have a card to share today that I was asked to make some cards for a baby boy this is the first I made.  I actually made two very similar one for a boy and one for a girl but I will show the other some other day.


The rubber stamp is a Magnolia called Delivery From Heaven.  I bought the stamp as I was looking for one for when my daughter has her baby.  I didn't want one with a baby on it as her partner is Asian and so it wouldn't be suitable to have a Caucasian baby on but I thought this would be suitable as there is only a bit of the head showing, no doubt I will get several more before the big event. I have coloured it with Copics and added some Liquid Pearls in blue.  The papers and sentiment are Pink Petticoat.  I used Dienamics stitched Rectangle Stax and mini tabs for the image and sentiment.  The banner is La La Land and my favourite SB border die.  Here is another view:

Susan I do love this image and will be prefect for you to use when your new grandson comes - very thoughtful of you to think of others feelings. ( not enough of that happens these days) . As for Dave's present well what can I say apart from " Brilliant " my husband knows how to use ours but only when he thinks about it, Hazel xx
