New Baby Card - Heffalump Style!

My friend had a baby on Saturday! Congratulations Caroline and Mike! They probably won't be reading this, seeing as they are unaware of the blogging instinct in me, and especially not with a new baby around, but you never know. They had a baby boy, Thomas Michael, another son to go with Adam, which at this precise moment in time is Joseph's unconditional, love him to death Best Friend. Till next week. You know what they're like.

I don't have much baby stuff around, so I found these heffalump stickers (they used to be Josephs before I 'stole' them out of the bottom of his craft box {evil laugh}, and anyway it's not technically stealing, 'cos I bought them, so there.) and combined them with papers from the Cute and Cuddly set from Forever Friends and an old rub on from a sheet that I've had for ages and cost about a squillion pounds (or there abouts). A bit of a ribbon and a few buttons and voila! It's finished.

Hope she likes it! Can't wait to go round and have a squeeze of the baby and revel in the knowledge that I can give him back when he cries. Yippee!

Love, Clare x

Hi Clare, congrats to your friends on their new baby son and I agree it's nice to have a cuddle and then give him back! I'm sure they're going to love the beautiful card you've made even if you did have to steal from Joseph's craft box LOL! Glad your cold is a cold and not tonsilitis 'cos that's yucky, hope you feel a bit better today and thank you for your sweet comments yesterday. Hugs, Chris xx
