Good afternoon
Hope you're all having a good weekend. It's been so humid today, no sun just humid and now we're having rain! Good old British weather!
My friend requested this card for a brand new baby boy Alexis and sent me a photo from her phone so this is what I did. It's not a fussy card but I like it and baby Alexis looks adorable so I am posting picture and details as I use my blog so much for reference for measurements etc if I want to repeat a card design.
I used a 6x6" white card blank covered with stripey paper from my stash. I printed the photo @3x3" and the frame is cut from Accent Essentials scalloped square frame cut @ 4" cuttled with swiss dots and pop dotted. The text is computer generated LDJ miss me and matted on lemon and pop dotted. The baby and heart buttons are from my stash.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend I'm off to sit in front of a fan as this humidity and the menopause are not a great combination lol!!

Isn't he sweet! The design is perfect - not taking away from Alexis and making him the center of attention! Great job! Cathy xx:)
