A pair of Baby cards

I thought I would make a baby boy and a baby girl card.
I used a set I first got when I signed up as a SU demonstrator.
 I have not used this set until today.
When I considered this mini project I could not make my mind up about gender,
so I went ahead and did one of each.

The stamp set used for this card is Fun and Fast Notes.
 Page 40 in the 2010 Idea Book and Catalogue 2011.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

I was sent a gift of crafting goodies from a very lovely lady called Clare, who has a blog called
http://www.myperfectworldofcatscardsandcrafts/  Clare's blog is great so please check it out.
I would like to say thankyou to Clare for your gift it was really kind of you, and i hope you like what I have done with one of the flowers from out the packet.
Today i made this card with a number of other cards that i will post this week, thankyou for taking the time to look it is much appreciated.
Take care

Iwould like to apologise for not updating

Good morning all I would just like to say that I have not been able to do any crafting due to having a bad cold. It has left me gasping for breath so I visited the Dr to be told that I had a chest infection. I was given antibiotics, today is day 5 and I am able to breath a little bit better. So I will be back in my craft room today to make a card or two for my blog. Thanks for taking the time to look.

Went to training yesterday with Jo

Training was in Peterborough and 50 ladies came along lots that I had never met before.
We all took swaps along.
My swap was not a card but a brown environmentally friendly sandwich bag. I thought that anything
 could be stamped on to it, so it could be used for a number of things.
I stamped some with love hearts, flowers, butterflies and baby things. At a cost of  99p for 10 bags
I feel it's great value. I just hope that Home Bargains don't stop getting them now.
The cards I recieved from swapin' are great, so Iwould like to say,to all those ladies that
came along and swapped with me,thankyou for your great ideas.
I would like to say to Monica and Bekka thankyou for holding these days, they are great as they let us meet up with people that we only know through the internet and we learn new things and,
of course, get to swap ideas.
I would just like to say, a great day had by me.
Thanks for checking out my blog.
