The Joy Of Sets January 2020 Blog Hop: New Baby Card

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 

Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project.  Today for the first time I am taking part in the Joy Of Sets Blog Hop.

Nigezza Creates with Stampin' Up! Birthday Bonanza for The Joy Of Sets January 2020 Blog Hop: New Baby Card

The theme of this blog hop was really well timed for me. Something new happened on the day I had scheduled to work on this project. Some friends of mine had their second baby. I was planning on making them a card when this happened and was delighted that I could make it for this blog hop. It also gave me a good excuse to use this paper that I was not sure what I was going to make with this!
