Polkadoodles New Beginnings

 Tuesday again, my how these weeks are flying which I actually do not understand as we can not go anywhere or visit anybody. How did we ever find time to do that in the past???

Time for a new challenge over at Polkadoodles Digi-Choosday Challenge Blog as always the theme is anything goes and if you pop over today there is a great money off discount code.

The Design Teams Brief was new beginnings and pastel colours. Perfect for new grandparents. I actually had the brief when Oliver, my nephew was born so I made this card which I then sent to my parents.

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner
