Commissioned baby's first Christmas

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well or getting there...hugs.

The weather can't make up it's mind again, it seems quite mild and damp at the moment, but earlier in the week it was -4c and I had to scrape the car windscreen when I left work at 10pm!

I am off to Ilkeston tomorrow morning to meet up with a Docrafter, I am quite looking forward to putting a face to her name. We are meeting in a supermarket cafe, and it's a compitor to the company I work for  so I had better not mention any names LOL.

Anyhow, I am here to show you a card I made earlier in the week for a work friend to give to her baby grand-daughter so here it is :o)

 Basecard folded and cut from an A4 sheet of white linencard.
Image and paper from an old Dorcraft's Digital Designer CD.
As you probably know by now, I don't usually use CDs except those produced from our own photographs by myself and my very good friend Pat (we used to be known as J & P Pictures but had to give up for various reasons) but I keep this one just on the offchance that I may be asked for a card with FF on it!

I printed onto the same linencard and added computer generated sentiments, then stamped with little snowflakes from an old Crafts UK set.
Ribbon from stash.
That's all there is to it folks.
I am hopeful that I have now finished making my own Christmas cards, and just have three more commissioned cards to make, but methinks it may be wise to make a few more "just in case ones" :o)
