New Beginnings

Good Morning

My Allsorts teamie Amanda has recently given birth to a beautiful baby boy 'Alfie'.  He was born on 31st Dec and weighed 9lb 10oz!  If you would like to see a few piccies of him pop over to Amanda's blog. 

Last night I decided to make a card for Amanda to congratulate them on the safe arrival of little Alfie and luckily for me there are lots of 'New' challenges at the moment so I can enter it into 11 challenges.  To be honest I don't like to enter a card into more than a couple of challenges because I think it is a bit cheeky but because they are all a similar theme I decided to make an exception just this once!

The challenges are as follows:

Cupcake Craft ~ 'Baby Card'
One Stop Craft ~ 'Something beginning with B'

Image ~ Forever Friends
Papers ~ Craft Creations
Sentiment ~ Die Cut from The Range
Embellishments ~ Gems and Cuttlebug corners

Anyway I must go and catch up with some housework.  It is snowing again ~ wonder if I will get a phone call to say the schools are going to close early.  Take care if there is snow where you live.
