New arrivals and another Christmas card!

I was asked to make a new baby card for a young mum who has just had premature twins, they are both in the special care baby unit at the moment.  Hopefully they will put on weight and be allowed home soon. 

I wanted to add their names and weight to the card as a memento  so printed that on to card and die cut the hearts.

 The twins is cut using Altenew bold alphabet dies and the elephants are from a set by Heffy Doodles.

I have also made another card for the CAS Christmas card March challenge "Kraft, Red and White"
This time I have used the Chunky Merry die from Simon Says , cutting it in red glitter card and the cute reindeer is from Clearly Besotted.  I also used the Simon Says Falling Snow stencil and some Nuvo glimmer paste.

We have had really cold weather here again today with lots of hail storms, I am really itching to get out in the garden and get it ready for Spring.  Hopefully soon!

Have a great weekend and to all the UK mums "Happy Mothers Day " for tomorrow.

Gosh, what teeny, tiny babies. Your card is lovely, Sally. I love your Christmas card too - that colour combo is a real favourite for me as it looks so cosy. So glad to see your reindeer putting in an appearance again, Jo x
