a new nephew...

My lil' sis finally had her baby on Wednesday 20th April. Despite having known she was having a boy, I've still ended up making this card from scratch over the last few nights, in a panic to get it finished for tomorrow when Mum & Dad go down to see them. It's taken me blummin hours, but now its finished I have to say I'm rather pleased with it.
I'm hoping to make a matching photo frame, but he might be celebrating his 1st birthday by the time I get that finished!!!  The papers I've used are 'Enamoured' by the Paper Salon and I totally adore them (just ordered another set in case they sell out LOL). The image is 'monkey toes' from Whimsy Stamps. All other items were purchased from the Craftz Boutique (my new fav shop!)...
