A new baby boy card

Good morning from a very grey, windy and miserable Scruff's Corner today. It's been like this since I got up an hour ago so I think it's time Mr Sunshine was woken up, we want blue skies now, not grey :)

I received an email on Thursday from a very good customer of mine with a list of cards to do over the next couple of weeks or so with the most urgent being a baby boy card for her sister as he was 'due in the next two weeks' I thought I would make a start on that one first. Good job really, he arrived yesterday! So here we have one frantically finished card lol

It's difficult to make out but baby's name is actually in the says Dexter. I've always got a stash of knitted bootees and hats but always forget I've got them, until now. Everything was from my stash. But don't faint, I actually had to print off a sheet of the gingham card as I didn't have a large enough 'Snippet' (sorry Di :))

Sorry about the rubbish photos, they don't look so bad when you click and enlarge them. As I said earlier, we had grey skies and it doesn't warrant decent photos, however, the sun has made an appearance now that the card has gone:)

I would like to enter the card into the following challenges

Allsorts Challenge - week 3 of the anything goes challenges
Secret Crafter - Bingo week and I chose brads, flowers and bows (my flowers are on the beautiful 'Marianne' frame. I really like the flower and leaf detail on this one!)

Thanks for looking.
