It's a boy!

Good morning,  there's a new challenge starting today at Fab'n' Funky
The theme for this fortnight is 'Square'- that's it, couldn't be easier..
I'm sharing the card I made for my lovely friend Sue, who is the very proud grandmother of a new baby boy. I did have another card in reserve in case baby hadn't arrived but little Ethan made his entrance last week- and the card has been received.
I used a cute Mo manning digi, Copic markers to colour,  my favourite baby boy papers (Echo Park) and followed a sketch from Cheerful Sketches.  
I made a girl version too as we didn't know which sex the baby was :)

Well, that's it from me today, thanks for stopping by and please do take the time to check out the fabulous cards from the rest of the DT over at Fab 'n' Funky

Looks good in both colourways Chris and totally agree with Carol in it's nice to keep the element of surprise till babay arrives (just call us old fashioned).

Lovely to see you at our Allsorts 15th Birthday celebrations, many thanks for joining in.

Hi Chris, just popping by as part of Passion for Markers to say thanks for sharing your super cute card with us. That image is just adorable and you've coloured it perfectly (well, them, perfectly when you look at both your cards!)

Hope you are doing well and, as always, apologies for not commenting at all, maybe I'll have a little bit of time one day to start commenting properly again!
