Congratulations Sweet Baby......

Hello,

Hope you are well and are having a great start to your weekend. So muggy here at the moment and it was so hard to sleep last night. Hopefully it will clear soon I am still clinging to the hope of an Indian summer!



My card today was made for a sweet friend who is celebrating the birth of a beautiful Grandson. I have stamped my image with black versafine onto Waterford 300 gsm watercolour paper. I have diecut some nestie ovals and 3d them with sticky pads. The border is a Magnolia Doo Hickey die absolutely love them. The stickles I have used are Silver Ice and Star Dust.


Thank you so much for visiting with me and please take care and have a wonderful weekend!

love
