Baby Shower Card

Morning my work for me today...I've been enjoying a couple of days off during half-term with James & Sophie. We went out for lunch yesterday and just chillaxed in the afternoon...don't know what we'll do today, probably just go with the flow!

I made this card a few weeks ago but had forgotten to post it. A work colleague who was attending a baby shower asked for a unisex felt a bit weird at first making a baby card in blue and pink as so many mummy-to-be’s nowadays like to find out the sex of their babies before birth...I think it turned out OK in the end and I just love this fab baby image from the Digi Stamp’s perfect for paper piecing!
