Well its October already and not long now til my big 30! Its really windy and wintery outside today and I feel like putting the heating on and curling up on the sofa! but I can't, I'm taking my little boy to mums and tots this afternoon. My mum's neighbours had a little boy on Monday, and as well as giving them a card I wanted to give them a little keepsake. I used the idea that I had originally used when my friends had their twins back in April last year.I made the little concertina card in 3 sections and just layered on some white hammered card and then I rounded all the corners. I then added a couple of pictures downloaded from the internet and some baby blue satin ribbon and a few blue adhesive stones. I printed off the birth details onto co-ordinating doodlebug card and then cut out. I cut "J" using my sizzix alpahbet and mounted it onto a punched circle.
And to keep it in, I made a little wallett/envelope from vellum, using my scoreboard. It was so simple to make and I think its really effective. I think I've about mastered the art of tying nice bows at long last!
