New Baby Girl, Big Brother, Cousin Cards

I made a few cards today…

It feels good to be able to go up to my shed and make things again… and actually enjoy doing it…

A new baby girl has arrived … although not the same baby girl that arrived today for the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge, but to friends of ours son and daughter-in-law.

So I made a wee card…

  • Cream Cardstock cut and scored to make a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card.
  • Clearly Besotted Baby Shower Stamp & Die Set
  • Hero Arts Soft Vanilla Ink
  • Stampin Up Calypso Coral Ink
  • Mama Elephant Stitched Border Die Set

Finally my third card is for the new baby’s new big cousin who is 1yr old. Β It is nice to include the wee ones too so that they don’t feel they are not getting lots of attention with a new baby around, so a special wee card each is a nice touch

Patchwork Elephant

I have a couple of days off work this week, and it’s going to be a busy one!

My sister, niece and new baby fly in tonight, so I wanted to make this card to give to them whilst they are here… I don’t send cards to Mallorca, mainly because they never arrive!

So here is the card I made for H, G & baby M πŸ™‚
