Stampin' for the Weekend

My daughter asked me to make a card for an ex-colleague who has just given birth to a second daughter. When I came across the Stampin' for the Weekend blog today I thought that I would enter this card for their 'Anything Baby Goes' challenge.
The stamp is entitled Special Delivery from Hero Arts, and I'm really fond of using it. The border punch is from Martha Stewart and the lettering is Cuttlebug Babyface alphabet dies.
After sitting for most of the day in the not too warm Hampshire weather, the result of the 4 day cricket match is probably going to be a draw as we came home when bad light stopped play, with Hampshire needing 140 runs with only 17 overs in which to do it!
Don't ask me to explain the rules... it's all just too complicated and I don't understand a lot of them myself!
My husband has just looked on the internet and the result of the match was as we expected, a draw, as no further play could take place because of the bad light.
Still, we had a great lunch from the Members' Carvery! Can't all be bad!
