John's grand-daughter Hettie.

Our friends John and Jean came over on Saturday night, but they arrived a little late as John's daughter gave birth to a baby girl just as they were were due to set off to see us on Sunday night.
They took a detour via the hospital, then joined us for a Chinese take-away, then Jean and I
ventured into the craft room, leaving the men watching the golf on TV.
I had promised Jean some crafting, so she asked if she could make a baby card for baby Hattie
(John had said baby was to be called Hattie).

Here's Jean's card based on the blue version that is featured on an earlier blog of mine.

Colour used is Pretty in Pink.
Stampset used is Bundle of Love
Baby details printed on computer then cut with Word Window Punch.

After the card was finished John and Jean received various texts congratulating
them on the birth of grand-daughter HETTIE!! He had got the name wrong - so I quickly printed a new name plate and we stuck it on top of the old one.  She will never know!!!

  7. Sandra Wright couldn't comment direct - here's what she put on crafty bloggers:
    Couldn't leave a comment on your blog Kate,so will leave it here for you. What an unusual card, just perfect for the occasion,even though you had a quick re-jig with the name,lol...x

  8. Looks like you and Jean had some fun crafting. It's a lovely card - and nobody would know you'd had to attach a changed name plate if you hadn't said.

  9. Kate this is absolutely brilliant. It's a fantastic idea and great shape. This is so different and I totally love it.
