Quick card and quick post!

Ooooo its baby day today!!!! I am in charge of the delicious Lucas for a whole 11 hours!!!! His Mummy and Daddy are at a wedding today and my sister asked me to make a card for her!
Yet again I seemed to have zero time to make this so it called for an easy peesy layout and SU colour matching to make it quick!
THe card blank is from Craftwork cards Back to Basics range and I stamped the image and the sentiment in Basic Grey ink, I have only just discovered this, its a fab alternative to stamping with black, not quite as harsh!
Made a bit of a faux pas with this card! THe papers are So Saffron designer papers and the card stock is Barely Banana!!!!! I thought I have pulled out a sheet of So Saffrom but it was only later when I was clearing up my craft desk that I realised it was Barely Banana!!!!

The stamp is one of my favourite non SU stamps which I love using for quick wedding cards! The sentiment is from the Mr & Mrs stamp set. The rhinestone heart is from my wedding stash and the ribbon is also from my wedding stash!

Arty farty angle!!
Right got to dash, got to get myself ready to look like a yummy mummy! wink!
I have a pram and a travel cot in my kitchen at the moment!!! Its already taking over the house and the main attraction isnt even here yet!!
