Oh Baby Week 4 a little late

 Hello peeps! Yes I'm late but I have a good explanation...I was abducted by aliens...actually that's a lie lol. After I posted on the challenge blog my laptop decided to play up then Coen and Nicole came by and that was it...Glam'mas attention was no longer on cards lol.

Coen is a week old today...can you believe it????!!! I made him a card ... I had an idea in mind and it ALMOST turned out like wanted :-D The main thing is that Nicole and Ben loved it...Nic even went as far as to say it was my best ever card lol. Not sure about that but I'll take it ;-D

I've used B is for Baby ... I actually started the card BEFORE Coen was born. I thought I'd get a head start and make the base card and do an image suitable for a boy and a  girl then all I'd have to do was attach the appropriate one when the baby was born. I printed the B on pink and blue pp and cut out the blue one first, no problem (don't look to close lol) But for the life of me I couldn't cut out the pink...I printed it 3 times and messed each one up...I'm now thinking it was a sign lol. 

I cut out the heart with my Nestie then put it through my Ebosser with the button embossing folder. After coloring and paper piecing the B I centered it in the heart and stitched around it. I cut out buttons with my Die-namics button threading the holes with twine and gluing them to the card with my hot glue gun for a bit of dimension.

Hmmm...I think I'll be getting my magnifying glasses on the next time I decided to paper piece :-S From a distance it looks fab lol

 I cut out buttons with my Die-namics button threading the holes with twine and gluing them to the card with my hot glue gun for a bit of dimension. 

I wanted to cut out Coen's name but had sold all my alphabet dies...or so I thought. I had a light bulb moment, remembering I had a few Quick Kutz alphabets that I had planned on selling on thinks not now ... I love how his name turned out.

I embossed the bottom of the inside panel with the button folder but you can't really see it from this picture. 

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Artistic Inspirations - Paper Piecing/Piercing
Digi Makeover Challenge - Anything Goes
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - White On White
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Paper Pretties - Embossing

I wouldn't be a proper Glam'ma if I didn't show you a picture of my gorgeous grandson so here you go....

Yummy Mummy!

Thank you everyone for your congratulations and good wishes since Coen was born. Everything they say about being a grandma is true and I'm loving every minute. I can't get enough of this little guy...he is absolutely perfect though I reserve the right to retract that statement when he hits the Terrible Two's lol.

Catch ya later xx

A wonderful card. Definitely one of your best.
The pink not working for you was definitely a sign. You knew deep down it was a boy. ;-)
He has grown into his skin now, isn't he handsome.
Enjoy him now, with Ellie at 2 years 8 months I can certify the terrible twos are not to be missed!!! Also don't wish for him to chat or you end up with one that talks all day AND all night. (Of course I love her dearly)
