My youngest sister became the first of the three of us sisters to become a Grandma this week - her stepson Jim and his wife have had a gorgeous little boy - Cameron Ewan, only problem is that I made a baby girl card! I knew that the baby would arrive this week as the due date had passed and Sarah had been given a day to be induced so because I had a challenge card I needed to get on with I decided to make it a baby card but which sex to do? Well I knew that whichever one I picked the baby was going to be the opposite - Sod's Law isn't it!!
The Charisma Cardz challenge is all about Embossing this week and I decided to go for a quilted effect for my dt card, I embossed the two colours with two different embossing folders then cut the card into squares, stuck them onto more of the cardstock and (particularly proud of this bit) stitched them with my sewing machine which I happened to have out this week as I'm busy making sock monkeys for craft fairs at the moment. I coloured the Meljens image with Promarkers, and made some pretty bunting with my new die set from Whimsy Stamps - love it!
Of course I also had to do it all over again in blue :o)
