"Simple Baby Card"

Hello fellow Bloggers, hope you are all well.
Thank you so much for you continuing to follow this little Blog.  I really love that you keep calling and leaving such lovely comments.  
I have to say you were all very complimentary on yesterdays card.  I definitely saw a "witch" in that female character.  Come to think about it, Robert obviously had not seen it either otherwise he would never have used it on his card.
Change of plans here again today.  Boys here and sleeping over tonight.  Mummy was day shift and works 12 hour shifts.  Daddy was to work from home today but was called away to try settle a dispute down South.  That means staying overnight for at least one night.  Had to go to Tesco to stock up on extra bread and milk.  John picked them up from school, they like when they get Grandpa to themselves.  Well in actual fact they like that he takes a very long detour home via an old fashioned Sweetie Shop.  They get sweets, eat a few then they are left.  It is the thought of going to the shop that they like rather than the sweets.  That what comes of living in the Backwoods!!! even get a "thrill" going to a sweetie shop.
Today`s card is one for Hazel and is going off to Canada.  One of Charlie`s family has just had a new Baby Girl.  This is a long awaited for baby, everyone is so excited.   I have kept the card flattish for posting.

White Base Card approx 5 x 7
Backing paper and topper from a CD I have had for years.
Topper matted and layered 
Pink ribbon from my stash.  Just tied a knot, again to keep it as flat as possible

The CD I used is really, really old.  I keep thinking I should bin it.  Then I remember that image and backing paper are on it plus another for a little boy card.  Looks like it will stay on the shelf for a few more years yet.

As I was putting up my Post yesterday saying that I was saying "NO" to any further requests for orders or help, guess who had left me a message on my iPad.............................Yep! Hazel.  Needing 12 small cards in 2 boxes for ladies she likes to give them to.   However Hazel is the one person I do not include on my "NO" lists.   All done and dusted, ready to give Hazel on Wednesday.  I had just been doing some clearing up and put lots of "bits" in the bag for the school.  They were removed, I made all the cards from these bits.  I felt really good when I had finished.
Right folks off to put my feet up for a while before bedtime
Thank you so much for calling by I really appreciate that you do that. 
Till next time

  9. Morning Patricia,
    A beautiful card, such a lovely image. I had to smile about the sweetie shop, my husband used to pick up our granddaughter from school and it was always a trip to the sweetie shop on the way home, it's one of those old fashioned shops with lots of jars, she almost 16 now but we still call it Ffion's sweetie sdhop.

  10. Sorry that should be shop.

  11. You're a true sister Patricia! How could you resist such a sweet request? Don't bin your cd, no doubt there are more lovely images on it and fortunately cds don't take up too much space. Love this sweet, adorable card, it's darling! Hugs, Ira x

  24. Hi Patricia
    Sorry I didn't pop by last night but nodded off at some point in the chair. Today has been charity shop and then out for a meal for Mr Duck's birthday.
    This is a beautiful image and the card will be treasured, especially due to the circumstances.
    I would get excited about a visit to a sweetie shop at my age lol.
    Best wishes.
