IT'S A GIRL. THE CUTTLEBUGSPOT























































Good morning
I have some great news to share with you this morning! My son Connor got the GCSE results he needs to go to college!! I am so proud of him, for those of you who don't know Connor has autism so even coping in a mainstream school has been a huge journey for him after 10 years at a school for autism. He found doiug exams very stressful so we decided a college course would be better than staying on at 6th form as coursework based results will hopefully be far less stressful than exams. Well of course in order to get into college he had to pass GCSE exams catch 22 really! But anyway he did and he's so chuffed with himself and I am so proud, well I am proud of every little thing he has overcome and achieved. So onto a new chapter which comes with all the anxieties of getting the right support in place for him at college! He is very excited about going and he will be doing an IT course which is his favourie subject!

Anyway on to my card for today! Over at the Cuttlebugspot this week we have an 'Oh Baby' challenge! Nilda asked us to create a baby project.

My card is for a new baby girl and for my embossing I used my old favourite swiss dots CB embossing folder. For those of you with a keen eye you will notice that the embossed dots on the lettering are smaller than the embossed dots on the rattle! that's because the embossing on the letters is using the CB folder and the rattle is embossed with the sizzix equivalent. My card is 6x6" and covered with paper from Me and My Big Ideas paper from the baby girl stack, This paper is beautiful to feel as it's flocked! All the cuts are from cricut cart New Arrival, The rattle is cut at 5 3/4" and I think the sentiment is cut at 1 3/4" all in pink and white and pop dotted. I've added pearls and ribbon from Hobbycraft to complete. Hope you will pop over to the Cuttlebugspot and check out the adorable projects the team have created this week and join in with us too!

Hope everyone is having a great week and for those of you in the UK hope this rain stops soon!!!
