Hobby Horse Boy

Hi there.

Today I'm back with another baby card. My friend who had the baby girl, also has 3 members of her family who are having babies around the same time, so she ordered a few cards from me. This one was for her SIL who knew she was having a boy.

I used one of the new in colours 'Lucky Limeade', as well as some DSP from the Nursery Nest pack. The hobby horse was made using the new Christmas Stocking Punch, (available to purchase now) tricky hey! So far I have used the punch to make a hobby horse and some baby socks, and not yet a Christmas stocking!

I used greens for something different, but am looking forward to making some more of these in pinks and blues.

The white doily softens the look and is from the Flirtatious Speciality DSP pack. The scrumptious ribbon is our new 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon in Lucky Limeade. I used Bakers Twine for the horse's mane, and a brad and white taffeta ribbon make the bridle. Very cute!

The inside as usual, I kept simple to leave room for a nice handwritten message. The sentiment was from the gorgeous new set, Petite Pairs. This set was made to use on the front and inside of the cards, but as you can see, can also be paired as one greeting. The little bear is from Little Additions.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hopefully I will have some more hobby horses in different colours to show soon!
