New Arrival

Hi everyone,

We had a lovely anniversary trip last weekend, my hubs took me to Dublin, one of my favourite cities! We had a great couple of days there, walking around soaking up the atmosphere and sitting in pubs drinking Smithwicks & Guinness. We also had tickets to see Bill Bailey, who was absolutely hilarious, I would definitely recommend the show! I will hopefully do some scrapping of the trip in the coming weeks, I will try and share with you :)

When we came back, I got a call from my friend, telling me she gave birth to a little baby girl that night. That's girl number two for them, so a real woman's household! Of course I went ahead and made her a card, here it is:

I am not too happy about it, it seems I am not liking my creations very much at the moment, but as my husband assured me he thought it was lovely and beauty is in the eye of the beholder after all, I decided to post and send anyway. Let me know what you think, I'd appreciate it very much.
