CD Sunday - Baby Love - chosen by Sue

Good Morning - and it is a fine one whilst I am typing this post.
Sue has chosen 'Baby Love' as her theme and I love what our Guest Designers and my fellow teamies have done for this challenge. Please look here.
Coming from a small family and being of a certain age there are limits to the number of new babies in our circle but I do have a gorgeous new Great Nephew - Ellis - so I have made this for his 1st Christmas. He will be 10 months old.  I know he will be too young to appreciate Great Aunt Carol's stitching but it will go in his box of treasures I am sure.  I still have them for my 3 children.

The stitch  pattern comes from Pinbroidery and I have used a backing paper from Messy Rabbit Christmas CD printed direct to card for the base. I love making stitch cards.  When you first look at all those black dots on a piece of paper it is difficult to imagine what it is going to look like. It is always a lovely surprise (that is if you haven't made a mistake). The challenge is then to find a way to present your finished stitch work.
Please join in our challenge and if you feel like commenting here I would be delighted to receive them.
See you on your blogs.
