It's a Boy!

This is a quick post from me today as I've been upto the NEC and as a result am way behind schedule :(

Anyway, my friends' baby is due any day now and it's supposed to be a boy. She wanted some birth announcement cards made up, so I thought I'd better get a wriggle on! I decided that I'd have a little play with the pull tag mechanism again and this is what I came up with. I'm going to attach a picture of the baby (once he's here) to the rear of the little birth details card.

The image has been coloured with Promarkers and then paper pieced. I've added some faux stitching to the bear and drawn the little bow tie around his neck. The edges of the papers have also been faux stitched. The white card pieces have been edged with Papersoft.

Make sure you mark next Friday on your calendars as you won't want to miss the new challenge over at Stampin' with the Dragon! It's gonna be huge and heaps of fun and there will be some fab prizes up for grabs.
