The first REAL entry

As a new grandmother (but do call me Nanny) of four weeks, one of my most recent projects was to make THE BABY CARD.
I found a great template called More Than Words (and I am ashamed to say I bought five other words as well!).
I cut the words from box board and covered each letter with papers from the PaperMania Vibrant Colossal paper pack. I used mainly Woodware Clear Magic baby stamps and a couple of tiny sets of Dovecraft Designer clear stamps (what a bargain at 99p). A computer generated "Announcing Me" card and a photograph of the happy family completed the card; together with tiny buttons, flowers and loads of lace, ribbons and ric-rac. The card was bound together using book rings but for the next ones, I will use my Bind-It-All machine.
I had to make two - a pink one and a blue one - just in case - and I have since made another blue one - again, just in case !!!!
