Quick Baby Card

A friend a work asked me for a baby boy card, she said she needed it if possible. No problem I said I will do you a quickey card. This was the idea but when I got home my new toy had arrived a 'Cuttlebug' so I did a very quick tea for the family and sat down to play.
Now the thought of making a baby card did not enter my head, I tried the embossing folders I had brought out on scraps of paper, found a home for my new toy, went to iron my trousers for work the next day as it was already 11.30pm, and then I remember.
This card is a quick 15min job and some of that was turning on the PC. I used a blue satin card, with some topper from Kanban , I tied the ribbon and stuck it to the card and added some jewels. Inside I used the quote ' Little feet leave big footprints in your heart' and I used a small Dottie and George with baby in the corner.
I am quite please with the card for a quick and simple one. But I must learn to do cards for people before playing with new toys!!!!
Now I need to make a card using the cuttlebug!
