Boy Baby Cards

I had a trip down to Portsmouth today, purely because it is the nearest one to us (over 80 miles each way), and I was in desparate need of some white linen card. So off I go, expecting to have to pay £8 for 100 sheets, which is an offer they had last time I went in September, although I was sure I'd get more like 200 sheets for £16. However, they finally had an offer one for boxed linen card instead of having to buy it in pack of 10. So I snapped up 3 boxes of around 70 sheets in each box for £15. Bargain, and I am hoping that 210 sheets will last me a very long time.

I've sat tonight and made up some of my 'named' card for the basket I'm giving my friend at the end of the week to sell for me, and did a couple of baby boy ones:

They have been made with white linen and silver mirror card, and 2 different ribbons across the bottom. I love the top one with the gingham and teddy bear ribbon, but think that this will be the last one I can make as I have run out of the satin teddy bear ribbon and can't find it in my local haberdasher shop anymore. As always the letters were cut on the craft robo.

I'd like to enter these baby cards into the following challenges:

The Crazy Challenge - All Things New
