New baby

Hi!  I hope you are having a great week :-)

Today I'm sharing a card I made for my friend Julie who is one half of Scrapbook Sisters, where I go to my classes and whose shop I spend far too much money, LOL

Julie and her HB have become grandparents for the first time recently, so I wanted to make them a card to say congratulations, but what to make for someone that owns a craft shop!

After spending over an hour searching I had only found one of my baby stamps - I have gone through every box that is stored in the cupboard, and I knew they weren't in the main storage I keep by my desk, and not in the stamp boxes either.  I'm really confused as I have no idea where they can be!  All I can think of is that I've lent them to someone cos the worse option is that they've got dumped in a bag and thrown away, although that is unlikely as a couple of them were reasonable sized wooden ones, who knows!  So I had to use what I had, and its a cute stamp anyway!

I've gone a bit mad with flowers on this one - all the sunshine we had during the week must have made me come over all summery!  I've also hidden a metal teddy bear charm in there

The image is another one that I've had for an age, and as only a cheap one - another 99p job I think - and I've stamped it 3 times then coloured and cut out using one of the small deckled edge nesties then I've brushed round the edges with a pink chalk eye

Supplies:  Card and Paper -White card; Slipper raised dots, Bazzill Basics; Shitake and Blush Double Dot Cardstock, Love Bandit Nuts 4 U and Love You Deerly all Bo Bunny; Flowers - Woodware and Prima; Brads - Papermania, Charm from Stash

Thanks for looking

Sue  xx
