welcome baby elsie may!!



well no challenge today!! have made a card for my next door neighbours , who are the the proud parents of a very special baby girl!! mum was in hospital for about a month , poorly , before the doctor decided baby elsie was ready to come into this world!! both mum and baby are doing fine!!(so the proud dad says)

the idea for this card , came from a one i saw on jenny`s blog "stamping moments", thanks for the inspiration!! gosh !!this is for a challenge (sorry early been up since 2.30am with poorly lewis again) it`s for a new blog challenge "stamp something!" the theme being "first somethings" ~so have made this type of card for the first time and baby elsie is new to this world (and being their first born!!)

have used yellow card (baby`s nursery is painted yellow), used cuttlebug "best friend" embossing folder for the front pocket (the words work very well, used the word giggle for the ribbon tag!!), winnie the pooh paper, magnolia teddybear stamp(inside and out), sizzix letters, quickutz rub~ons, x~cut corner punch, pink gems, yellow ribbon and yellow glitter from my stash!!
i do hope mum and baby will be home soon, their lives will be changed for ever!!
hope you all have a great day , i hope i can stay awake!! byeeeeeeeeeeeeee xx

ooooo I like, nice to do bright colours for new baby. Love the idea too. Teddy cute, and what a lovely name. So a little girl, nice for you to watch her grow, you having all those boys in your house.
Hope you get some sleep and Lewis bucks up bless him big hugs oxo's Vicki
