I made this card last night and I am quite pleased with it. I have never made a baby card before and didn't think I had any images that would suit, so wasn't going to enter the challenge at Totally Gorjuss, which was a baby theme. However, on checking my stamps I came across Arthur. I had got this stamp in the goody bag from Funky Kits, some time ago and at that time, didn't think it was an image I would use. So if I hadn't being doing this challenge, I probably still wouldn't have used it. Glad I did. When I first purchased this goody bag, I wasn't sure about the stamps that I got, but have since used two, they might not have been my choice of purchase, but they have certainly been very useful, so maybe I need to think a bit more about stamps that I purchase in future.
The card is being entered in Saturday Sketch 114, although I have rotated the sketch and Totally Gorjuss - birth, christening or first birthday.
I was going to use the card for a first birthday, until I found this sticker for new arrival, which matched the papers I was using. I have had these papers for at least two years and never used them.

Thanks for popping by and have a nice day. Weather wet as usual. Summer is definitely passing us by again this year.
