New Baby Card & Dad's Birthday Card

Hi Everyone,

just a quick posting today as I am waiting for the arrival of my first grandchild (grand daughter).  They have been at the hospital since early this morning so hopefully we should have some news today.  She was given 11 June as her delivery date, so looks as though they could be right..  It's my dad's birthday tomorrow he will be 87.  I've posted my new baby card and dad's birthday card.  He was in the RAF and still loves everything to do with aeroplanes, and was based in India from 1945-47 so thought this theme appropriate.  I downloaded the old map of India and aged it with my TH distressed inks. Also used spellbinders labels and textured card.  My baby card was made using a baby die cut, spellbinders grand circle die, EK success punch and ribbon.  Hope you like them.  Be back soon Dee xx
