Oh Boy!

Hello All!
A quick post from me today. Our nephew and his partner have a baby boy due anytime now so I have a card in readiness.
I`ve used Pink Petticoat DP, gingham and pinstripes, both in Duck egg blue.
The lacy border is  Spellbinders Grand classic Lace.
I added a ribbon and made a loopy bow with a heart shaped gem
The sentiment is computer generated in Amazone font.
Three small gems in the bottom middle for balance and that`s it.
I love making elegant baby cards, so different to anything shop bought.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. How stylish and elegant is this card. And quite unusual, too.

    All the best to your nephew - sleepless nights and lots of smiles in between nappy changing. Lol.

  2. Very stylish. It'll be the best card of the lot for sure! xxx

  3. Gorgeous - love the frilly border with the blue geometric patterns - feminine and masculine all at the same time. Our nephew has a baby due any day too! I haven't made my card yet though as the last one born in that part of the family was supposed to be a girl and was a boy when he arrived so I think it's safer to wait to be sure.......

  5. Gorgeous card Lynne and you're so right, it's far better than anything shop bought. This will be treasured!

  6. I agree with you Lynne - this kind of card is much more of a keepsake and it's beautiful. I've been catching up with your blog today - have been away and then ill so have really fallen behind - and you've posted so many lovely cards! Wishing you a very happy 2012, Vicky x

  7. How wonderful to be able to make a card in advance and it's a beauty too....love that bow and border :)
