Baby arrived - so card finished

What a lovely weekend we have had...... some sunny weather!! I have had a good "go" at the garden, lawns are all cut, trimmed, raked etc. Stitching though has suffered but never mind! Yesterday we went over to my mom and dad's for a chinese take away tea to celebrate my dad's birthday. (His birthday is actually today) We also celebrated the arrival of my cousin's baby, they had another little boy and he was a whooper at nearly 9lb !! They have called him George William, so last night after a few glasses of wine I quickly stitched the bow blue on his card and mounted it today. I adore the way this has turned out and I hope they like it too.

I had also finished dad's father's day card in the week so I mounted that too. I need to get a peel off stitcher for the bottom yet. Again I am pleased with the result. This afternoon between gardening I have been doing some decoupage as I want to make some cards for my charity stitch group for their fund raiser in September. I'll show some of them when they are complete.

Otherwise this week I have made fantastic progress on my Bang on the Door design, it has been lovely to stitch.... lots of bold colours. I will show this once it is done and been presented to the person I am making it for !!

I have just 2 days off for spring bank holiday, so I am hoping to fit in a bit more stitching and card crafting.

Happy stitching.

The cards look wonderful, they'd be such fun to receive. Henry is coming along great also. Love your recent finishes for stitching for charity, and how great you got your mom involved too, the little bear is adorable.
