Welcome Little Man!

We now have two little boys called Isaac in the extended Perry clan. My great-grandson who is two and a half already(!) is called Isaac, and at 3.am today, our niece gave birth to Isaac Flynn. Flynn is his middle name not his family name, and it shows his links to his Irish roots. We managed to find and meet up with family members of both his great-grandparents when we visited Ireland last year. Incidentally, his arrival makes Chris and I great-uncle and aunt, at least 52 times! I have actually lost count but I know that is about right. Aren't families wonderful!
A couple of weeks ago I briefly showed the card I had made in readiness for his arrival on my other blog, but now it is in the post, en route for UK, I will show it properly.
This is my favourite baby image, and it is a Sugar-Nellie digi-stamp called Bambino. I coloured him with copic markers and used water to tear out a small 'blanket' from pale blue mulberry paper. The background is a triple layered paper that I made in photoshop from a digi-scrapbook kit. I printed it several times so I could decoupage the flowers. I used puff-paint for the bobbles on the hat. The sentiment was computer generated and cut with a sizzix die, and I finished it with some pearls for the flower centres, and some new card candy that I had bought that day.
Welcome to the world little man!
