Just like buses.....

In 2013 it seemed like everyone was having a baby and I was making cards left, right and centre. Then 2014 and nothing, no new little ones, my cousin announced she was expecting but that it was due in January so I had plenty of time to get myself organised and make a card......well he arrived a month early the day after his mum's birthday and totally unexpected. I think he wanted to celebrate christmas with us.

Anyway onto the card, I've been in christmas card mode since september so any other cards have been fairly simple and this is no exception, its a tried and tested baby card and I can't see me changing the format anytime soon lol.

I like this card a lot, too! Nice job on shading the baby, teddy and blanket! I think I spy that border you were telling Aileene is a good one!! I miss Bashful Blue, too :(
