Baby boy

Hi everyone,

This is just a share card today. In yesterday's post I mentioned that, that card was made from scraps left over from this card.

One of the mums' in my mothers' group had a boy (after two girls) & named him Angus.    So I thought today I would show the card.  Once little Angus was born, I knew what colour scheme I wanted to use, but other than that had absolutely no idea on the style of baby card I wanted to do.  The other thing was I wanted to use my Prismacolor pencils for a change (don't tell anyone, but I think the Copics are a little miffed!).  So I visited my LSS Daisychains, flipped through a few of their books, brought a few papers & embelies (broke my self imposed "No spending on craft for the month of March") & came up with this card.  I loosely followed a card from one of the books, but of course couldn't bring myself to stick to the orginal.  Basically all the circles are from the other card & everything else is different.

Well thanks for stopping by today & happy crafting everyone xoxoxoxo
