Welcome Frankie!

As well as six puppies, we also welcome into the world baby Frankie McGivern, my son-in-law's nephew.
Took his time to arrive - I felt for his poor lickle Mummy,  Jennifer- and was over TEN POUNDS in weight! For a first baby that's a bruiser, isn't it?! LOL!

Here's the card I made for his parents.

It's a 21 cm squ white hammered base cardstock decorated with a K&Co (I think!) blue patterned paper a blue satin ribbon and blue Prima Blooms.

The image is my own drawing ( 'Baby Benjamin' on sale at Stitchybear Stamps) coloured with my trusty Copics and mounted on white glitter card from DCWV.

I finished it off with an organza ribbon and a couple of metal baby charms.

The name lozenge is stamped with my own Eiglas alphabet clear stamps in French Script.

I'm entering this for 'Craft Your Days Away' challenge, which is  a Babies theme.

Hope you all like it! I especially like this image as it's one I did of my number two son, Michael, back in 1977 when he was about a month old.
