It's a .... BOY ... Welcome Wiliam Charlie

We had some wonderful news this week ....
A friend of mine who has had a really rough 12 months or so has had her fourth child ... 
A baby boy named William Charlie, born on Thursday 12 January,
a little early but doing well.
Brenda has two daughters and William makes two boys and they are one very happy little family.  I'm hoping to get to either the hospital tomorrow or visit them at home if she is released over the next couple of days because they are also on the move to the Blue Mountains area due to her partner's posting with the RAAF (Australian Airforce).
A new baby and a new home ...
Phew she has got her work cut out for her that's for sure ...

So, here's the card I made for William
I used Emerald Faerie Garden digi stamp "Ashee" and photoshopped out the mushroom that he was perched on top of so that I could keep the card monochromatic and pop him on top of the "It's a Boy" element.  He's coloured with my copics and prismas and I quite like the simplicity of the card and the monochromatic theme ... 
I hope I can find a challenge to enter it into ...
A close up of my colouring

So, this was card number 2 this weekend and I hope you like it.

Until next time
Ciao
Julie
