Yep, it's Wednesday, so it must be.....fanfare of trumpets.....WOYWW!  It always amazes me how quickly the Wednesday comes around each week!

So what's on my little work trays.  Well as you can see by the gorgeous red and white diecuts and the dies it's ... yes.... Valentines Day!  So what does that mean? Yes cards!
I've had a rootle around my craft stash and found all things heart related and now the ideas are springing up in my little old cobweb and tumbleweed filled head.  Whilst looking I've found a few other bits and pieces which I need for another card so that's handy!

For those of you who saw my challenge last week, to make an A4 sized card for a Baby Shower, here is the result.  I had made up a few templates for my friend and asked her which she preferred, and she chose the onesie based card.
It was then a case of putting on the background papers she liked and I added the little nesties with the baby words on, surrounded by diamonds - well it is for a boy so couldn't have too much.  I added some ribbon and backed it on to mirror card and it was all done. 

I also added some baby peel offs to the insert to brighten up the huge double A4 size cream paper as it looked so empty without a verse on it.  The space was needed for about 60 signatures so it had to be clear.

Anyway, I hope you like it and I'd love to hear your comments about it.  Off to have my one coffee a day now and then dream up some more layouts as I've got quite a few cards to make with imminent deadlines!

Oh yes, is anyone else getting these stupid adverts at the top of the blogger page or is it just me?!?!?!

Enjoy WOYWW everyone!
