We went to our local fire station last night, as they had an open evening, which H loved - shame the time was 6.30 - 9 though, it would have been better if it had started earlier, as we had to leave by 7.50pm !! This will probably be my last card this week, as H has an inset day on Friday and i'm having a tooth extraction and a filling on Thursday, oh joy !!

Today's card is for a friend who gave birth last Wednesday, but didn't name the baby till the weekend 'Ethan Charlie' and i've used a versatile stamp - it's actually for Valentines, but i've used it for Father's Day and now new baby.  The papers are K & Co - 'Itsy Bitsy', sentiment is Woodware - 'Tiny Phrases', the twine and brads are from my stash.
