Oh baby, baby!



Hello. This is the card I have made to celebrate baby Oliver arriving yesterday (see post below). I've made it into a little keepsake book and inside is his very first scan picture and a tag with all of his birth details. There is also a 'Made in Gibraltar' sticker as that is where he was conceived!
It was great fun to make and I will definitely make more. I hope everyone is well and I'll be around this evening to pop over and say hi.
Lots of hugs,
Em.x
