Sorry I haven't posted for a while, May and June are difficult months for me, won't bore you with why, but we have a new grandson, and that pushed me back into getting on with some card making. George Edward was born at 11.12pm on July 3rd, weighing 6lb 6oz, and he's gorgeous.As we didn't know what sex the baby was going to be I started 2 cards, 1 pink, 1 blue, and finished the blue one as soon as we got the news.

It's an 8x8 card and the image is from a MCS cd, sentiment computer generated and cut with nesties, I also decorated the inside

and here's the verse I added

I also decorated a plain gift bag with the same image, and changed the handles to ribbon, instead of brown cord
I am pleased with how they all turned out, just need someone to have a baby girl now, then I can finish off the pink card.
Thank you for visiting my blog and for any comment you leave, off now to do some blog hopping, love Irene xx
