Long overdue...

My neighbour's daughter had a baby boy back in June and this is me just getting around to making the card!! I've said it before and I'm saying now....better late than never :-D
I've gone for a bit of colour in this one and if you look really close at the pp the white stripes are all glittered wasn't me...nope...came like that so that just means you're ALLOWED to use glitter on baby boy cards cuz this paper is from the DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Boy paper stack and if they do it then it's gotta be ok lol.
I grabbed a stamp from one of my favourite SU! sets...there's very little colouring involved so you can make a super duper quick card if need be. Of course that goes against MY grain but hour for this baby wasn't too bad :-D

I used GA on the bubbles and dusted with my glitter...cuz it's officially allowed now lol.
I'm going to take this and the present to my neighbour later before the kids starts school!!
Big announcement tomorrow...The DT will be revealed!!!! Woo hoo...finally you'll be able to see who's creations you're going to be seeing here every week. There's a real international mix...we've got girls from the USA, Scotland/Canada (that's me!), Ireland, South Africa, France and the UK!! How's that for a bit of a 10 pence mixup lol. Make sure you check in tomorrow.
Think I've enough time to make the final Jack card for tomorrow's post so I'll love you and leave you. Have a great weekend :-D
Catch ya later x

pardon me for pointing out .. this is a quick card - for a baby born in June only joking - i am no better lol)
I love the little image .. my kind of baby card . That Dp is gorgeus too and i have always thought a little glitter.. lets face it its the mums that appreciate the card .. and all mums like a little sparkle
The DT sounds like the united nations ... but a lot more fun .

I like lots of glitter on boys and girls so this is right up my street. Love the little cutie image and I have that paper pad and love it. Can I ask what GA is?

Love the card Kerry, I too am ashamed to say some of my cards are a little late at times!
I agree with Lisa, the DT does sound like the UN. Right I'm off...

Hmmm, I too specialise in the belated variety, so much so I need to buy a belated birthday stamp! Lovely card as always
