Two Little Boys


These are two baby boy cards I've made recently.  Last year I made a wedding card, and helped Elaine and Andy make fudge for wedding favours, for Andy's friends Chris and Karen and a few weeks ago their little boy Fraser Angus Stewart arrived.  Although Chris and Karen live close to Newcastle they chose to get married in Scotland and have given their little lad a real Scottish name.  The second baby card is for one of Elaine's friends and has still to be personalised as this little fellow isn't due until the end of October.


This card is a case of a cased card which I made for the arrival of a grand nephew at the beginning of the year.  The only additions to this one is a few die cut buttons made with a Quickutz die so that these cards qualify for this month's Penny Black Challenge of Buttons and Bows.  The Penny Black image used is Baby Hammock and is coloured with Promarkers.



Whilst shopping in Tesco I spotted this T-shirt and socks to match and couldn't resist buying them to include with the card.


Thanks for reading
