What a fabulous baby card and perfect for the new twins. I love the soft, vintage look of this.
Then the babies... how adorable! And don't you just love how they are facing and touching each other?

Christine Harrop said...

You are so right Carole we all love babies and we have been doubly blessed today with twins and two cards. Both gorgeous and the stamp is super!! Such gorgeous babies.

The NEC is still quite a big show, even if smaller than previously. The November show is the one to attend though because there is also the Christmas gifts and food stalls. In my opinion a bit too close to Christmas though.

Enjoy the rest of teh weekend. Love and hugs Christine xx
