Ickle Baby Boy Card

Hi, and welcome!

So....we're goin' to have a heatwave over the next 48 hours........you'll find me in the 'fridge.....pass the ice-cubes!
I know I may have mentioned one or two dozen times that I really, really dislike the heat, but partner it with high humidity....which is what is due, very soon......and our electricity bill is gonna hit an all-time high......when's the next flight to Iceland??

Speaking of Iceland......a lady in our ward, at Church, gave birth to her second baby last week.....a boy.  Her husband is from Iceland, and they have named their new son, Benjamin Helgi.....his Daddy is called Helgi......and I'm hopin' he'll let me rent his old home in that cold 'n' frosty place, just 'til my gardens harden with frost again, LOL.

D' you think this ickle card might swing it for me?........

I like the soft colours....the Forever Friends decoupage came in a free booklet with a magazine, along with the gingham and the yellow paper......oooooo I love freebies!

This cute sentiment is a Melissa Francis sticker, which I stuck onto white card and did my usual hand-stitching with blue thread to match.......it's layered onto yellow spotty paper, which is layered onto white card, all edged with blue ink........ 

Used a scrap piece of toning yellow card and cut with a Nestie, then layered up the decoupage.....I always seem to forget how much fun decoupage can be............thought this ickle fella was just right for a baby boy card...........

Found the ribbon in my stash........boy, have I got a ton of ribbon!.......and the sentiment is another sticker from the Melissa Francis sticker sheet, which I put in the centre of a shiny yellow button...........

Used some of that yellow spotty paper to cut the pretty lace, which I lightly edged with blue ink....glad I rounded those corners :)


And this is the very simple inside...........will write the message in baby-blue ink....job done!

If you don't hear from me over the next few days, I'm in Iceland!

  2. Oh, sweet! I love how you layered the image. Baby cards are just about my favorite. I was shivering on the Oregon coast today. I think the wind on the beach brought a little bit of Iceland with it.
