Oh Baby

Good morning I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I had a good night Friday and Saturday night but not much sleep so consequently didn't get much crafting done!  Once I got my housework done on Saturday and washing and dinner on Sunday I spent the day in the lounge knitting and watching films!  I am really trying to get to May with my DT cards before the baby arrives but haven't even finished March yet!

Today's card is one I made a while back after being asked for some baby boy cards.

The elephant, sentiment and gingham paper are all Pink Petticoat.  The feet image is a Magnolia stamp and the heart and pearl are from The Hobby House.  I used different Spellbinders dies and Centura Pearl for the base. Very simple card here is a side view:

I would like to thank everyone who comes round to visit and leaves comments its always lovely to read them and I appreciate that it is time consuming.  Its always so nice to switch on your computer or I Pad and see that you have comments waiting.  I know there are people who regularly visit and don't leave comments and I thank you for your visits too Since I started my blog almost three years ago I have 'met' some wonderful and very helpful people and really hope that long may it continue.
Take care xx

Hi Susan, I just popped back to answer your question about the House-Mouse Triple CD - there some digi images to colour yourself but most of the images are already coloured, there are also decoupage, papers, etc. There is a look inside the CD video at
I hope this helps.
