Baby Twins...

Hi all,

Well Sunday just gone was Mothering Sunday here in the UK. Apart from making Mother Hau a Mother's Day card, I was busy making a commissioned baby card to celebrate the birth of twins. I was given details such as to use blue and pink and their names and then it was up to me to come up with a finished card.

Here it is below, hope you like.
