A birthday card for a new Daddy x

Hi again

At last I have a card to post today - can't believe how I managed to mess up my blog when I decided to have a little play with the layout on Friday.  it took me ages and when I finished I hated it!  So I had to start all over again and its taken me all weekend to get it something like the way I wanted it again!  I've decided palm trees and parrots flying around my posts are not really my style after all lol.

Anyway, I've got soooo many cards to make over the next few weeks I'd better get going.  on 27th March it the most megga card day of the year for our family.  My daughter Alison and her husband both have their birthday on that day, on top of that its their 2nd wedding anniversary.  So todays card is the first of these, its Stevens bithday card - a mans card always the most awkward, for a young man I think its even worse!

This is a cute Lili of the Valley stamp of a daddy and baby bear Bear - really appropriate for my son in law because he's a new Daddy of a baby boy - now 11 weeks old and just as cute

What I did.....
