New Goodies New Baby Cards

Hello All
Thank you for your lovely comments. I love doing cross stitch, but these days the old eye sight means that now I only stitch during the day. The bit I don't like doing is the mounting and framing. I must have about 6 or 7 wrapped up in my wardrobe waiting to be done! Oooh Mrs Duck, thank you, I was so flattered by your comment. You must have caught me on a good day, most of the time I obviously don't look that young because bus drivers ask me if I've got a bus pass - cheek! I have to say you don't look your age either, especially when you're not wearing your crash helmet. I think you look a lot younger than you say.
Today's cards are using some of my new products, one from Ally Pally and one just because! My daughter's friends are all having babies at the mo, some are on their seconds and My New Baby cards were always a variation of one I have already posted and I'd had my eye on this cd-rom/die set for ages. They didn't have the complete deal at AP so I ordered it as soon as I got home. It is from Tattered Lace which is a company that I have used before and know that some people don't like Stephanie and Nancy (me included) but I liked the look of this concept. Now, I am having problems with getting the cd to work but I took it into Serif and made my own digikit. I am in a little dispute over the error messages that were occurring but that's between a pc repair company and me at the moment but if I'm not happy and it isn't resolved satisfactorily, I will be contacting Tattered Lace.
I can see me using this for baby/toddler's birthdays, first Christmases,  Easter etc
The embossing folder was bargain from Ally Pally. I love the cute little tooties!

I did have to do a re-jig for the one going to OZ, it's spelt "Jaxon" not "Jackson" lol!

  3. Hi Karen
    These are absolutely darling. Beautiful pastels too. All sounds a bit technical to me. Think I'll stick with me Grand Calibur lol!
    I honestly meant what I said. I'm not one to blow smoke up folks oojits, you could have honestly knocked me down with a feather when you said about your Ruby Anniversary next year............there's obviously something in the water in WGC so you should bottle and sell it lol!
    Thank you for your comment too chuck.
    Best wishes.
