Jakey Bakey's Baby Card!

This card has been a work in progress for a good month or so before little Jake entered this world but I have been waiting to get it completed! Becky had a gorgeous little boy on the 9th May and I would have sent the card earlier but the proud parents took a while to find the right name for him.

Then I was waiting on his middle names, weight, eye colour, length etc… I’ve felt like little Jake’s stalker for the past few weeks keeping a close eye on Facebook and other online sites for any update so that I can finish the card! I’m still not sure if they have been decided on his middle names but I just couldn’t wait any longer to get this sent out!

The 4 little tags have a photo of each scan they had over the 9 months of his journey and there is a verse on each tag which reads…

A new baby boy
is a gift beyond measure
a wonder to hold
and a lifetime to treasure

With ten perfect fingers
and ten tiny toes
two bright eyes
and a cute little nose

This soft little one
is a bundle of love
a beautiful boy
sent from above.

His life is a miracle
filled with pure joy
What a blessing to welcome
your cute little boy!

I hope they like it, I just wanted to make something a little special for one very special super cute little boy!

Cupcake Card


Here's another card I made recently for Becky's birthday. I got this stamp for my birthday and I was so excited about it as I love cupcakes anyway and this is a monster cupcake stamp!! I couldn't wait to try it out.


I just love the new Hero Art's Cling stamps, love the fact that I can see the image at the back of the rubber and that they don't take up much storage!

Bradley's Birthday

Well it's been a few weeks since I last posted, just been a bit hectic with work and home life. I've now got an impacted infected wisdom tooth, which was real fun because I woke up one morning being unable to open my mouth enough to eat my breakfast, I've been feeling dizzy for a few weeks along with earache but just got on with it... now I know why!
Infection has gone for now but waiting for a date with BUPA as a day patient to have the horrible tooth removed.. it's just been one thing after another recently... I feel like I could write a soap opera!!!

Anyway here's Paul's Nephew's birthday card, not up to my usual standard but I really find male cards hard ... I acknowledge that I need to widen my male related stash but it just doesn't jump out at me like pink and glittery stuff does LOL!
I was having my dizzy spells that day and couldn't look down for very long before having to look up! I really don't like it now I've made it and sent it but he seemed happy enough with it.
I've got some stapbook LO's that I want to post here once I get the time to take piccies of them, went to an all day crop 2 weeks ago and found my scrapbooking mojo again YAY!
