Baby Cards.

Good morning girls. I thought I was going to be out of luck with the weather today because it was very dull and dark earlier. But I have managed to get a couple of photos taken while the sun was out. Might just be a little blink but I've got my photos and I'm happy lol!

First of all I have a card I've made for Poppy when she becomes a big sister. (Just a week till Catriona's due date!) The little girl is a bit bright for the rest of the card but her top has been coloured in "Poppy" Promarker lol! I've used the same gorgeous papers as the previous baby card I made. I either keep using a favourite paper....or I don't! I couldn't find buttons that fitted in so I thought I would use the clear buttons I bought the other week, cut round them on some patterned paper, stick them through the Xyron and stick on the card. Well I couldn't find the buttons could I? OK I'll use my new Martha Stewart embossed button punch....no the button would be too big. So not one to be stuck I punched out two little circles and made a couple of holes in them. I would have glazed them but this paper is so gorgeous and glittery that I just left them alone. I'm quite pleased with it so I hope Poppy likes it.

The second card is one I made quickly this morning just because I need a few baby boy cards. It was really quick to make once I decided to stop faffing around trying to choose different papers and just use the same papers again. I think I might just go ahead and make a baby girl one to the same basic design. Isn't this a gorgeous image from Pink Gem Designs. I'm going to enter it in Janet's prize draw to win six of her stamps and also a chance to be a guest designer. That would be awesome!

I'm entering the Simon Says Stamp Challenge with the first card and the Carol's Sketch Fun with the second one.

I've used:-
Sketches:- first - Simon Says Stamp Challenge.
Second:- Carol's Sketch Fun.
DP:- DCWV nana's nursery
Also - Promarkers, nesties, EK Success punches, and circle punch. And ribbon and pearls from stash.

Hope you like. And please remember my mini candy ends at 8pm tonight.

Edited to add - thanks to Kath for posting about new Hero Arts stamps over at The Glitter Pot. Yes I know I didn't have to go over there and have a look but like Kath when I saw them I couldn't help buying some. Oh dear and I'm trying to save my pennies for the SECC on Sunday lol!!!


  1. Very cute cards and gorgeous flowers on the first one.

  2. Bless... what a perfect card for Poppy, It's about the same age difference as my two, when they were little, I thought oh bless James will be a good example and help his little brother, your joking they were little tikes....( James learned Adam all the naughty thing's too ) lol.
    Looking back I am thinking were has the time gone.
    And can I say what a beautiful name Catriona, is that your Daughter's or the new baby's?
    Ps... forgot to add my name to your candy, will do it now...
