New Big Brother

My new little granddaughter is here, she is 3 weeks and 1 day old today. She had a card I made ages ago, because I spent all my time making a New Big Brother card for Kenny (poor Lily - I will make it up to her next time).
This Molly Blooms stamp of a little boy with his kite was perfect, and Kenny opened the card and said "that's me"(he loves kite flying)! Result! 
I coloured the boy with Promarkers and die cut it with Spellbinders. I added DCWV papers from three pads, the background is from All About Boys and had all the right colours for the image.
The letters are cut with Sizzlets Bounce, the New is cut with an Xcut Christmas words set, and Brother is a Spellbinders die from a family set. The airplane - I can't remember who makes this die set, I will have to look for the packaging.

I would like to tell you that there is a new Challenge at Quirky Crafts and it is Christmas, I hope to make something to show you for that soon, (I am late due to my computer throwing a wobbly last week and being away for the weekend visiting my new granddaughter and grandson - where my son fixed the computer) we have three great sponsors and prizes, so hop along to Quirky and join the party!
