Welcome to the beginning of November. I cannot believe how quickly this year is getting away form me!! Does anyone else out there feel the same??
Sometimes being a nurse has its advantages. One of which is kinda being able to pick up when someone may be in the family way. One of the doctors in the practice where I work spiked my curiosity in a big way, but I kept my suspicions to myself for some weeks. More weeks passed, nothing was said, so I approached the Practice Manager and shared my suspicions.....and BINGO!!! (but I was to keep a v v tight lipped secret...no prob!) When the proverbial cat WAS out of the bag, I could not let the occasion go by without a card for the occasion.
I have had a gender neutral card bouncing around my brain for a bit and this was the final result...not exactly what I had in mind...but I was happy all the same.
The pram is basically a Nestabilities circle with a segment cut out and then dry embossed. Add a couple of hearts and the hook off a scroll from another Nestabilities tag (genius find even if I do say so myself) and the pram was complete!
All the "lattice" dry embossing was done using a little magic tape to hold all the squares together and also numbering them (in case they came apart etc....yes I am VERY OCD!!)
The banner was raised on dimensionals and the end flags tucked under just a bit to hang over the edge of the card, but still safely fit in the envelope. Can you tell I REALLY like dry embossing??
Thanks for popping by. I have more baby cards to share, both baby shower and birth - soon. I love to read your thoughts and impressions, so thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.
I also wish to thank ALL those who pop by regularly and not so regularly for taking my blog hits to over 20,300!!! I have only been blogging since January 2010, so I am over the moon with this result. From the bottom of my heart.....MWAH ooxx.
