Nappy Card and Exciting News!!

Good Morning. Hope you had a great weekend and are raring to go for the new week ahead!
We have had an exciting time and I have some great news to share at the end of this post.
 Monday brings a new challenge over at BBTB2 and the lovely Caroline has asked us to use our cricuts to Welcome  Baby.
I really like how this turned out!
I bought CTMH Artiste for this particular cut alone! I couldn't have shared the card with you as it was funny in my world (and my friend whom I made the incontinence knickers for (a special birthday!!)!
But yes....I know...I have a warped sense of humour at times!
Here is the card opened up.
I used Artiste for all cuts.
Card at 4"
Pin at .75"
It's a boy at 2"
I inked and machine stitched the card.
Glossy accents on the pin and mirri board for the pin itself.
I added ribbon and a baby tag - die and sentiment from My Creative Time.
There's a huge variety of projects for your inspiration from my DT sisters so do check them out and come and join in the fun.
I don't share a lot of personal information on my blog but some of you may remember me mentioning our son, Ossian, took up golf last Easter. He is 12 and now has a handicap of 11.7
On Saturday he qualified to play in the  Asian World  Junior  Championships in Jakarta!
We are immensely proud of and excited for him.
It takes place at the beginning of June .
I will be round to catch up with you all this week.
Thanks for stopping by.
