New Great Nephew!

This morning my niece gave birth to her second son. I'm not quite sure what relationship he is to me, but I think it may be great nephew... I'm not sure, maybe someone can put me right!
This brought on a spate of baby congratulation card-making. The onesie was a style I'd wanted to try for a while which gave rise to the other cards with images of onesies from the SU Jumbo wheel.
This one is for my brother-in-law, the granddad of the newborn, with a computer generated sentiment.
This one uses the sketch from Clean and Simple this time.
This one uses some tiny pegs that have been hanging around in my drawer waiting for a purpose!
The sentiment stamp is a really old one which I bought second hand on eBay which says something like 1989 DC on the side. 
I hope a few more baby boys will be born soon as I seem to have a surfeit of cards!


  1. The baby bug has truly taken hold!
    A lovely shaped card Chrissie and congratulations to the proud parents :)
    I think I like making baby boy cards best...must be an anti pink thing!
