Another "Just in case".

Hi there, and welcome!

Have you had a good day?  I've had a lovely one........Ken is away with work, until Monday night, and the rest of the family had plans for today, so I've had most of the day to myself.  Babysat 6 months old Bevan for a couple of hours, so that Jonathan and Tanys could spend a little time together..........Bevan is such a sweetie, (biased Grandma mode happenin' here, sorry) and is a delight to spend time with.

Had a bit of a rummage in my craft room, and was happy to see that my little stock of "just in case" cards is buildin' nicely.....but I didn't have any baby cards....or wedding cards......or anniversary.....or masculine........soooooooo........

I'm thinkin' baby boy, but have left room to add a sentiment, when needed.......
I'm still using up the scraps from my Nitwits papers, which were Christmas ones btw, but I don't think this stripey background piece looks particularly seasonal, lol.......the card base is kraft (yummy), and I backed the stripey onto pale blue card , and added brown ribbon with blue spots....seems a while since I stitched, so thought the brown thread added a bit of texture....everything is inked with Mementoes Rich Cocoa ink.....

I used a cute sticker as the focal image......not used a sticker for ages, but have tons of 'em, so you might be seeing more, lol.....the blue spots were on the same sticker sheet, and I used brown striped, and blue striped baker's twine to wrap around the Nestie.......

and tied more of the spotty ribbon in a quick knot..........

the flutterbies are from the same sticker sheet......

quick and simple, but can now add to my little stock.......never know when ya might need a baby boy card........I'm LDS, remember........and there's always somebody havin' a baby, lol!

Just a quick Thank You to all those of you who have been leavin' such lovely comments.......please know that I read each and every one, and get a real kick out of it.....well, I've got to take me pleasures where I can, these days, lol!
Even if you don't leave a comment, I'm soooo glad you take the time to visit.......take care, my lovely friends!
