The Stork Is On His Way!!!

This is my last post for today please scroll down to see my Willow Sketchie card with my SQUEALABLE news lol & my MAWTT creation! hugs xx

This weeks challenge over at Delightful Challenges is


this week we are being sponsored by Crafty Ribbons just look at the fab prize you could win!!

Two of my friends are due to give birth to baby girls next month, so I thought I would make a card for one of them....I have seen this fab fold of card quite a lot online & a few times on C & C!! So I asked my trusty hubby & he made me a template (if you would like a copy please email me!)

I will apologise now for the photo overload, but I think you will understand why after!!

This is the card standing up!

This is the inside of the card lying down!

A close up of the super cute 'Little Dumpling!'

Right this is the gate fold part which bends forward, so the side panels are the front of the card & the duckies are the back!

A close up of my flutterbut!

This is whats under the digi image flap thingy bit! lol!!

This is a close up of the inside, I decided it would be a good idea, as then its not just a card but a keepsake as well!
Hope you like it!

This is a gorgeous card. I still haven't quite worked out the fold. I may just be back to ask for the template if I can't figure it out!
I love the paper and the image is beautifully coloured in.
