Hi all, hope you are enjoying the weekend wherever you are.

Today I have another Baby card to share with you and enter some challenges.
My son and his girlfriends baby is due by way of ceaserian  on 10th February, I am getting a nice collection of baby congratulation cards ready, I have never really had the need to make them before so it is a nice change for me and it means I can use some more of my neglected rubber stamps, like this Hanglar one, I bought this baby set of stamps some time ago, I have both the little boy and girl plus some extra's 
I stamped the image 3 times the first on the die cut oval the second two I cut out to decoupage, the antenna, sentiment and baby rattles are just a few of the extra stamps in this set .  The baby rabbit rattle I stamped 3 times then cut them out, I have used my die for the stepper card base then my new Kaiser Kraft doily die as a background, I punched some butterflies for extra embellishment, the paper is Simply Dots from Bearly Mine (no longer available) then I added some Tonic Pearl drops.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

There are a few changes happening in my life over the next couple of months that I will tell you about them when I have got myself together after it is all over, all I can say is that they are big steps for me, so once again I may become erratic with my visiting but I hope that you will stay with me, your support and encouragement has always lifted my heart and spirits, thank you all so much.

Hi Lorraine, how exciting, not long to go now before the new little one arrives. Bet you're looking forward to all those wonderful new baby cuddles.
Your card is gorgeous, such a sweet image and lovely design, the blues are perfect for a little boy and I love the black contrasts.

Beautiful card Lorraine, I love the image, it is so nice to see a Hanglar image (must confess mine are very neglected). The decoupage and card design are really lovely. Have a good weekend.
