I am so excited as another dear friend has given birth to her first little bundle of joy,  a most gorgeous baby boy.  As she now lives in Canada with her husband, I won't beable to have cuddles, so have had to settle for the darling pics they have posted.  Well, of course to welcome little Alexander's arrival and to congratulate his lovely parents I have made this sweet little carousel card.  This card started life as a fold out card but evolved into a carousel.  I just love the bright and fun colours from my newest kaisercraft pad. The inspiration came from my own childhood and the great memories I have of being taken by my Granparents to ride on the Merry-Go-Round in Civic, Canberra. I still love knowing that the Merry-go-round is still there and when our children were younger and we still lived there, I just loved taking my kids for a ride...oh such great times!!

A little message tuck inside the back flap of the carousel and then images showing the back and the front of the card laying flat. 


I found this card a little challenging to photograph and have ended up with a million photos..sorry!!


I wish to enter this card into the latest ABC Challenge - Anything goes! and Creatalicious Challenges - Anything goes

For this card I have used:

Little horse stamp by Kaisercraft
Patterned papers from Party Animals Paper Pad by Kaisercraft
Yellow cardstock
recycled cream ribbon
Dimond adhesives by Kaisercraft
Scolloped edge punch
Copic sketch markers
Sentiment rub-ons

    to over due it! LOL!
