Bundle of Joy

Good afternoon everyone.  I hope you're having a good day.

I went to craft club this morning and a cross stitch circle this afternoon so I've had fun.

This card will have arrived now so I'm able to show it.

It's a parchment card made for friends in the USA on the birth of their new Baby Boy.

Isn't it handy for us card makers now as we often know ahead of time whether the baby is going to be a girl or a boy.

The sentiment reads "A New Baby Boy Your Bundle of Joy"

I would like to enter this card into the  Mojo Monday Challenge #420

Tomorrow I have to make a start on another parchment card for a  Golden  Wedding  party we're going to on Friday Evening.

Hi Barb,
what a very super card.
Love your parchment work again, and the fab design.
I had no such luck with my granddaughter as she was old fashioned, and didn't want to know sex of her babies so I had to make one of each sex just in case.
Plus she always had hers early too.
Crafting groups sounds wonderful, and it's so very lovely to craft together, don't know of any in my area.
We also don't have a craft shop any more so it's all online shopping for crafty stash for me.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

A beautiful baby parchment card Barb, not something I have taken too, guess I haven't got the patience required or I'm too heavy handed!
Love the soft shades of blue and gingham is just perfect for a baby card.

Hugs Erika. x
