A new arrival!

I did mention that my new arrival card would be a LIS card didn't I?
I am liking the simpler card just now, the clean lines and the time aspect.  I also know that my brother prefers a minimal approach to cards, another reason to stick to CAS.
This card is to welcome wee Francesca into the family.....

I have used the baby image from Sugar Nellie and Spellbinder die Decorative labels one for embossing the background.  This new baby from SN is very cute and I love using Spellbinder dies just to emboss as the tendency is to go straight to cutting.

I still have two boys poorly although we seem to just have nasty coughs, they've started to fight and argue which is always a good sign that they're feeling better....just like the Calpol advert! 
The pup is a lot better today and has been back to the vet.  She is much more her usual self although I am surprised she hasn't wanted food yet.  Hopefully later today.

That's all from me today I better go and run up lunch for every one.
