A New Addition to the Family

Hi all, I hope you had a great Christmas! We certainly did!
I've only just managed to find the time to start posting on my blog again, it sure is good to be back!

Right time for a mega catch up then...

Firstly is a card that I made for my cousin and her partner who welcomed their first and long awaited baby into the world and the family, on 28th December 2009, a whole 2 weeks late and weighing in at a whopping 9lb 8oz!!!

A HUGE congratulations to Paula and Damian. I'm chuffed to bits for you both!
I have only just got around to finishing off your card and it will be in the post shortly!
In the meantime, I am entering it into the 2nd Cards for Men contest, which challenged us to use the theme 'new'. Perfect!

Here is my entry :)
As always, click on the image to enlarge and view details.

The card front. You might not be able to tell, but the layer that the toppers are on are up on foam pads, then again the toppers themselves are up on foam pads too, to add more dimension :)

The inside, totally fully loaded!

And the back, along with the handmade envelope.
