Baby card

I made this for one of the mums at the Toddler Group that I help at twice a week at my Church Hall. She has just had her third little boy (so including her husband, that's four boys she has to look after, isn't that right, girls?!)

I didn't write down all the materials I used, but the image is a Woodware stamp (so cute!) and I think the paper is from Craft Creations, but don't quote me!

One of the best things about volunteering at a Toddler Group is seeing all those gorgeous babies grow up to be young ladies and gentlemen!! Even after they've gone on to school, their mums still say hello when we meet in Sainsbury's! And, according to my friend Jasmine who ran a pre-school for 20 years, kids who have been to a good Toddler group make friends more easily AND learn more quickly! That's really thrilling, you know!

What's also exciting for me is that I've been asked to make cards for the group (it's called Early Birds.) My first commission! Ok, it's unpaid, but I feel so chuffed that people think my cards are good enough to be used instead of shop-bought cards!

luv, Mags x
