New Baby Boy

Mad, crazy friends of ours are having another baby ( their 3rd ) due in the next couple of weeks.
Hubby said - "it's definitely a boy."   "Well, I think it is... maybe...  it might not be though!!"
So - if it turns out to be a little girl I will have to dash for the pink papers!!

I saw this cute little baby carriage and just HAD to make one.
I downloaded Niki's excellent template - here
I haven't filled mine yet - I need a trip to the sweetie shop -
but I thought a little bag of blue, sugared almonds would be perfect. 

For the card I followed the great sketch by Paola,
over at A Spoon Full of Sugar.

Stamp - Whimsy Digital Stamps, Sweet Little Donkey, coloured with Copics.
'A New Baby Boy' and apron stamp from a     set
Design Paper - DCWV Nana's Nursery, Baby Boy.
Edge paper punch - Martha Stewart Lace 
Buttons, card candy and ribbon from my stash.

Gorgeous card and pram !! soo cute !! :-) You could pop a little pair of baby socks in there ,,, would look like a baby all tucked

I was asked to make an enormous card for a boy, they wanted it to have a 5' x 7' frame on the front with parents names too ,, photo to be added ,,, they were sure it was a boy ,,, cos they had a scan !!! YUP ,,, was a girl !! I had to start all over again !! Can laugh now ,, wasn't funny at the time !! :-)

Love these colours for a baby and adore the cute little carriage. Thanks for sharing the link on how to make it. I like Lorraine's idea of popping some cute little socks ot something into the carriage.

Absolutely adorable! I love the baby carriage you created with my template especially the colors, stitching, and how you added the punched cardstock as the lace.
