For Baby George and Challenges too!

When my new Grandson Marshall was born a few weeks ago I made him a set of Milk Cartons and filled them with goodies and everyone loved them. My DIL's Cousin and his Wife had a new Baby Boy yesterday and I was asked to make a set for him and a card to match, so here is the set I have made for baby George.



and for the card I made to go with them, I followed this sketch on Cupcake Craft Challenges


So here is my card


I am also entering this card for the this weeks challenge on ABC Challenges which is K is for Keep it Simple and I think this card is quite a simple design.

It also fits the bill for the challenge on Creative Card Crew which is Round and around, their theme is circles and there is spots on the PP and also circles on the Milk Cartons so I am entering both the card and the Milk Cartons for this one.



This is the inside of the card and possibly the one showing the truest colours, the others all look too pink, photography is not my strongest point!

Another photo showing the set of all 4 milk cartons in the tray

and here they are all together



I have been told by my DIL midwife and a few others to take these to 2 local shops to see if they would sell them for me, one is a rather posh shop that sells all manner of different things like East of India, lots of Handmade items as well and the other is a new Baby boutique that has opened in our area recently so I may give that some thought if I can work out how much to charge for them!

So I have made a gift for a new Baby, a beautiful card to go with it and completed 3 challenges as well, not bad for a few hours work.

Hope you like them!
