Baby Shower.......

Hi guys. A little break from the family Birthday's today, and Christmas cards! Most of my friends are all turning 40 around the same time. I.E their last or next Birthday will be their 40th! An expensive time for us all! Well, you have to celebrate such an auspicious occasion now don't you?! That said, a few of those, "the women mostly!" ;-) are also having kids! Last egg in the basket syndrome maybe? My friend Leigh, who turns 40 next year, is expecting her first bub in November.. She knows he's a boy and has already chosen his name. Oliver William Carter... She has decided to have a Baby Shower and asked me to make some invites for her..
So, here we go. This is an idea I've had in my head for a while but had no real reason to use it..
The Balloon Dies
and the Cloud Dies are all from Memory Box. As the shapes are quite simple they cut through the 300gsm card stock I used like a knife through butter! Wish all of the dies were like that!
I finished the card off with the Marianne Designs "Baby Script" Die (LR0217). I just love the font of this die. And, as I have nothing to compliment this die in the same font to make "New" (Baby) or (Baby) "Shower". I think I will just leave it at that! Its defo the Blue one I'm going to be making more of for Leigh's invites. But of course I just had to see what the card looked like in other colour combos... So,
we have Pink,
and Lemon for those who don't know if it's a Girl or a Boy..
Although I'm loving the "Candy" colours I can use for these Baby cards, I can see the potential of these Dies, (not the Baby one obviously) for some male themed projects... Watch this space... Thanks for checking us out. See you soon. Andy.


  1. What a super design Andy - I love all the colour-ways but if I had to pick...I think the lemon is my favourite.

  2. These are all adorable, love the fact that it just says baby and the balloons and clouds work so well together. I may have to try this idea out.
