NEW ARRIVAL


I got an order from my sister in law in Canada while we were there for a baby boy card and some baby cardigans.  The baby wasn't due for a couple of weeks, but he decided to come early on Monday , he weighed in at 7lbs 5 ozs so not little.  Anyway I thought I'd better get the card made so I could get the parcel off in the post.  
The request was for a card with the heart striplet and not a baby baby image. A few e-mails later bits and pieces sorted, then it was a case of putting it together, again e-mailed photo to get approvable! Approval given so it's now all ready to go off.


I off set the two circles slightly as when they were centred they didn't look right, I also off set the striplet too.

I put this in the centre 


All wrapped up in its box, sister in law isn't worried about the cost, she just wanted something different for this special arrival.  

Goodness knows what the whole lot will cost to post, but as I said she isn't worried so that helps. 

I just hope the parents appreciate the gift. 

Thank you for coming in and having a look.
