New Baby Boy

Hi everyone, I've had a fun morning mooching round a couple of craft shops looking for supplies to make more of my weight loss charts. Washing's on the line and more on the go so now I get a bit of craft time (just for a change, hehe). I'm really pleased to have won a $50 voucher for Simon says stamp this morning, and thanks to my friend Sue for letting me know, even if she did catch me in a craft shop when I'm supposed to be on a shopping ban! We're saving for a show in July.....

Anyhow, here's my card to share....

 It's a lovely Forever Friends stamp which I've coloured with promarkers and added glamour dust to the nappy. I cut out the image and mounted it on a spellbinders die cut. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. The backing paper is from the Crafters Companion Souffle cd and is edged with Faded Jeans distress ink and matted on the same blue card as the sentiment. I've added 3 small buttons and a bow from my stash. I've kept it clean and simple as I wanted the image to be the focal point.
 I would like to enter this in the following:-
Less is more - Baby or child 
Fussy and fancy - new baby 
I love promarkers - use die cuts 
Allsorts - buttons and bows 
Cute card Thursday - a touch of sparkle 

Hope you like it. Thanks for looking. I'm going to try out another version of my weight loss chart using magnets....see you again soon.

Happy crafting
Helen xx
