I'm still here and I've made a card!

Well I'm afraid I've not been up to much in the card making sense over the past four weeks! I've mainly been chaning nappies, feeding and taking my oldest to pre-school! I have however, got something to show you! I made a few of these little baby cards to send as Thank You notes to a couple of friends who were kind enough to buy a gift for baby James. The paper is from a DCWV stack which I thought was perfect. I've had it in my drawer for about 2 years and this is the first time I've used it. I've made a frame for the picture using my nestabilities and some Bazzill Cardstock. For something so quick and simple, its taken me 3 weeks to get round to making them! And another card! This was a joint venture with my friend, her Grandma is 100 today!!! A big Happy Birthday to you!!! We made this an A4 sized card and the main feature was to be the photograph of the lady herself and her two grandchildren. To make the frames I've used the scalloped Nestabilities and have embossed them with the swiss dots folder. I've added a strip of embossed card to the bottom of the card and a piece of lace which makes adds a touch elegance! I then used my x-cut flower punches and placed a small pearl in the centre of each flower. I really hope she likes it and that she has a fantastic celebration with her family!
I thought I'd share one of my recent pictures of my boys with you! This is my favourite of the two of them together! I'm not quite sure how we managed to get them both to sit so nicely for this photo, we just got lucky! I've got them in matching outfits too!

Thanks for stopping by, and Thank you for all the kind messages on the arrival of James! I hope to be back into the swing of things again soon and have some more cards to share.

Introducing....James Arthur Robson!!!

Just a quick post to confirm the safe arrival of my baby boy, James Arthur Robson. He was born on 22nd February and weighed in at 6lb 14oz. I was told by the midwife he'd be bigger than my last baby who was 8lb 2oz so when they told me he was only 6lb14oz I was really shocked. He is an exact copy of his big brother when he was born, only a little smaller. Its like having the same baby all over agian! The c-section wasn't quite as straight forward as I'd have liked, and my recovery has been a bit slow compared to last time, but I'm starting to feel human again, and ventured into the outside world today for the first time since coming home from hospital.
