It's a boy!

Hello lovely people,

I'm back at work and still trying to wade through all the e-mails and jobs that built up while I was on holiday :-(

On a much more pleasant note, it's time for a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday and our theme this time is...

Don't forget to tell us which song has inspired you!

We are sponsored by Stamp and Create with a fabulous prize of a $20 gift certificate :-)

The song that inspired my creation is Babe by Take That as I was a HUGE fan in my teens...and then again when I was a bit older when they re-formed!

Soooooo..it's a new baby card!

I grabbed this cute stamp in my last LOTV splurge...it was quite a big splurge so I have a few more new ones to use yet!
I always seem to be asked for lots of new baby cards though, so it was a good buy.

I love that the Maja Design papers have little strips at the bottom and I have popped a few foam pads under the middle of it to add a little dimension.

Card recipe;
DP: Vintage baby - Maja Designs (available from Live and Love Crafts)
Tag: Sentiment tags - LOTV

Letters: magazine freebie
