Few more cards....

Sorry not been around, have had a busy month with babies being born, birthdays, my wedding anniversary, having hubby home and been out with my daughter looking at wedding centre pieces...

I have tried to catch up on blogs today, so hopefully I've visited yours, even if it was only for a quick nose, (sorry), but on the bright side have done a little crafting in between the running around, mainly cards...

This card was for my great nephew Orlando, (again very simple, lol).


The '2' was hand cut and used Tim Holtz ink to give it some shading, OK you cannot really see it, lol.. Then I printed off a Thomas the tank and 3d it for the corner and peel offs for the stars, name and greeting and finally balloons sticker...

And the other week I got another little great nephew, he's called Finley and was 6lb 6oz and lives in Bristol, so not seen him yet, but have seen lots of photos on face book, he's so dinky and cute.


This card was for one of Steven's carers, he weighed in at 8lb 3oz and is so cute and cuddly as managed to see and get a cuddle with him, a week after he was born. Anyway because of both Caelan and Finley arriving within 24 hours of each other I did the same card, but forgot to take a photo of Finley's card before I popped it into the post...

I put stickles round the edge of the scallop circle and gems on the wheels (thanks sue). The duck is a coloured peel off, as is the wording...

and because we've got another 2 babies due in the next couple of months and a few more friends of Sam about to leave to have babies, I decided to make a quick batch of 'mum to be' and a few extra baby cards in both pink and blue...

So all I have to finish them is personalize them now, like I've already done Kat's (her baby girl is due in October)...

You have been busy Maria, lovely cards. I bet they will treasure the personalised baby cards (so much nicer than a shop bought one aren't they).
