BABIES ARE A'COMING!

Hi my lovelies!  There are two special babies due in my family soon.....a new nephew (a brother for Millie) and a step-grandaughter...its so exciting!!!!!  Jeremy's 1st grandaughter comes first so I have been busy getting together a little something to welcome her!  Now I have to be careful not to step on her Grannies toes so I have kept it simple.  Don't want anymore family rows hahahaha!!!  As I am going to the Baby Shower (never been to one before)  I thought of a little gift which is always useful.........thank you cards!!!!

Tamara is one of these lovely people who always does thank you's.  There are 12 in the box, all Beatrix Potter stamps which have been watercoloured and a little GA & glitter added.  I got some ready embossed blanks and chalked them.  For her main present I made her a little bag to put baby stuff in for taking round the house...

...and shall fill it with the usual bits & pieces plus a pressie for the new Mum!  Can you see a theme going on here???  Yes...the nursery is BP themed!  I got the lovely fabric from COTTON PATCH who are worth a look if you love fabric!!!!

Thank you for taking the time to come & see my blog.  Please leave a comment if you have the time, LOVE & HUGS XXX

Karen, those cards are beautiful - she'll not want to send them though! Maybe you need to make another set and frame them for the new arrival's nursery....
The bag is gorgeous - as are all your wonderful baggies
