"It`s a Boy"

Hello Blog friends and followers hope you all had a good weekend.
Thank you for calling by and for all the lovely comments on my last card.  I have had a few comments from people who don`t have a Blog.  I just want to thank you for those comments I really do appreciate you taking the time to visit.   I do hope to see you back again.
Wonderful weather here over the weekend although not quite so nice today.  Got lots of washing out and dried yesterday.  Should have tipped John out of the bed yesterday rather than today to get the bedding done.   Had it all out on the line then the rain came on.  Not heavy, but enough to wet the clothes rather than dry them. All dry now via the tumble dryer and ready for ironing.
Went to visit a new baby boy this morning.  John dropped me off while he went and did some bits and pieces he needed to do.  Little Arthur, Robert is just gorgeous, small but beautifully formed, he was 21/2 weeks early.  John dropped me off, I did walk the mile back home, that was my exercise for today.
I had asked Hazel to do a Baby Gift Basket for me.   We did not know what the baby was to be so decided on White and Yellow.  I asked Hazel if "she" had photographed it ........ no!! was the reply.   Well neither did I,  so we can`t show it.  I was so beautiful, Hazel always makes a fantastic job of Gift Baskets.   Oh! well that` the way it goes, right couple of "numpties" .....LOL!!!
Here is the card I made to go with the gift.  I did cards for the "Big Brother & Sister" and forgot to photo them.  I took the cards and a gift for each of the other children.  Charlie 6 and Eve 4 a longer gap between Eve and Arthur the couple spent 2 years building the most stunningly beautiful house. No time for making babies when they were busy doing that.......!!!

Base card approx 5 x 7
Blue card stock

Thank you for popping by I really appreciate it
Till next time
