Sugar Baby!

My friend is expecting a baby boy in January, so what with the busy christmas period coming up thought I'd get ahead of myself and make her a card now using my gorgeous baby millie stamp from Sugar Nellie, available from Funky kits. I suppose technically as the stamp is called baby millie, it is a girl. However, with a little careful colour selection I think it is perfect for baby boys as well!

I coloured the image with my whispers pens and added a doodle border, before mounting to blue coredinations CS, to which I then added glossy accents! The spotty paper is from DCWV Nanna's kids stack and I embossed the top half of the base CS with my swiss dots folder. The glittered heart is a rub on from a pack that I got from the £ shop ages ago, added to white CS and cut out before adding to the card base with 3D foam. The sentiment is from a studio G set. I stamped 'joy' onto white CS and coloured with whispers before adding glossy accents.

Hope you are all well, not had much time for craft these past few days, been christmas shopping, doing housework and tomorrow I am in Manchester all day at a conference so probably won't be around tomorrow at all as I need to catch the train at 07.30!!! Oh no! I will try and get around some of your blogs this evening, in between eastenders and cooking tea, but if not I will catch up with you in a few days.

Thanks for visiting and leaving me lovely comments, I really value each and every comment you leave. It cheers me up, especially after a bad day at work to read such lovely comments from all my blogging buddies!

Big hugs to you all

Beautiful card Vicky and I think it looks great in these colours and just right for a baby boy card. I have visitors staying at the moment so like you my crafting time is in short supply at the moment - managed to get a card done last night after everyone had gone to bed and them remembered that I needed to prepare dinner for tonight - needless to say it was a very late night and I am paying for it this morning!!
