Male Birthday Card

What a beautiful day weather wise it's been today!  I spent the morning at work and then a few hours this afternoon in my Crafty Corner just because it was the first opportunity that had presented itself for well over a week.

Here is a card that I made for my good friend Roger (you'd never have guessed that though, right?!)

I had a rough idea of what I wanted to do, and it all came together really well, which is unusual to say the least.  I loved using my kraft card blanks and a piece of my lovely brown parcel paper (sigh!).

Today I made two new baby cards because my friend is due any day now, in fact she is late, but she doesn't know if it is a boy or a girl, so I made a pink one and a blue one.  I have two pregnant cousins at the moment, one expecting a boy and one expecting a girl, so the spare card will not go to waste, and I will have to make another in the appropriate colour!  I have left space on the cards to add the baby's name so will blog that when the baby has been born!  Anyone care to make a guess as to the sex ... ?!
