Well Hello Little One

Welcome JJ 

My best friend has had his first child, a son, little JJ.  He was born a healthy 8lb on the 5th January 2013.  I had already made a substantial gift for him (which you can see here), but I wanted a small token to take with me when I went to visit for the first time in hospital.

I used a left over sheet from the same paper collection for this hanging frame that I used for the baby blocks, so it will co-ordinate nicely in his room.  His Mum is a lover of lady bugs, so the cute little darling from Mo Manning was perfect.

He is coloured with Prismacolor pencils on Kraft, and matted with Duck Egg Blue card by Kaisercraft and some left over from the Little Darlings by G45, with a liberal dash of Stormy Sky Distress Ink, which thankfully hides all manner of flaws!

Linking this up with Mo's Challenge Blog, the flavour this week is Anything Goes.
Also linking up with the fab crew at Make it Monday, where it's always Anything Goes.

  4. I too saw this on MIM, it caught my eye straight away! Love the colouring on Kraft, something I struggle with!

  5. I just love the stamped as ing onto Kraft card. the minimal colouring and touch of sparkle work beautifully. I spotted your card on the MIM blog and popped over to take a closer look. I was pleased I did as i would have missed a pretty fun card.
