Hello Baby Boy

Good morning, once again it's time for a new challenge at Fab'n' Funky, can't believe how fast that fortnight went! I like that January is all but over and spring a little closer!

This fortnight our lovely Sue is hosting and she chose the theme of  

New Beginnings.

I made a card for a baby boy- always like to have a couple of new baby cards in my stash, they usually disappear in the direction of my daughter or daughter in law who often want them for friends or colleagues.

The image is a sweet digi from LOTV, coloured with markers and fussy cut.  The background panel is embossed with tiny stars and I die cut a frame from the same card and coloured it with a blue marker. The 'BOY' was cut using my old Cricut machine (the type you put cartridges into) , The smaller letters and the train also cut from white card and coloured with same blue marker. It looked a bit boring so I added dots with a white gel pen to jazz it up a bit.

Lots of inspiration from my lovely teamies over at Fab'n' Funky  so please do hop over for a look!

Thanks for visiting

Fabulous baby card Chris, I love how the cute image is sitting on the letters. It’s ages still I got my old Cricut out, I never think to use it for large letters. Thanks for the inspiration. I used to use it all the time for classroom displays. xx

Hi Chris,
oh I love this wonderful card and your stunning design too.
Love every thing used on this.
I used to have one of those Cricut machines and loved it, but gave it away when I had my Brother Scan and Cut.
BIG BIG MISTAKE. Much better than the Scan and Cut.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
