Happy Friday ALL

Well it's a busy day lined up for me again today
The car is going in for a service 
to make sure she is up and running properly
for her big jaunt over to the UK
So I will be dropping it off at about 9ish
then a long walk home which takes about 40 minutes
along the main footpaths.
But I am leaving Hannah at home this time
I feel so much safer only having me to look out for
then I have more things to bring downstairs
mainly books, and very heavy dive gear
Then onto sorting out Kitchen units
Working out what to take back and what just to throw away
I keep putting off packing everything when it comes to my craft stuff
the main reason being I have to unpack it every time
I thought I would make a couple of cards
ahead of challenges over at Tickled Pink
Only to look after and it is a sketch
not one of my cards is anything like it
So I have to make another
Which i might have to do today at some point
chill time after all the lugging and sorting
I do have a card to show
My oldest friend (not age just time) Claire
yes she is called Claire also had another baby
A little boy to go with the little girl she already has
I have known Claire since I was 3 years old
which is a long long time
anyway here is what I sent
I hate making boxes... well not hate
but I am not very good at it
always end up with one wonky end
or the top and bottom the same size!!
I need something to help...
Here is the card
A book an Easel card in baby blue
From the Clipart Fairy
so sweet and easy to make
but look stunning when done
I used up lots of dies on the base
I then put the verse on the base underneath
once I had printed it onto matching paper
and added some cute images of babies in prams

here is a closer view of the top... isnt it sweet
I added glitter round all the pages 
then ribbon and a double bow
then just the flowers
This is a view of the base 
You can see I have added baby's name and weight
and date of birth
Sorry some of the pictures are bad
I didn't check them before I posted the card
so can't take more.
Hope you like
