Baby Cards

*****I do realize many of you have already seen this so just ignore.  I just wanted to repost it so it was on my blog.  No need to recomment.  THANKS!  

So I begrudgingly set to task to make 2 baby cards - for some reason they're hard for me - and came out with a couple that were cute.  I tried to stick with simple and for those of you who know me IRL, you know that's almost impossible.  Also, it's a huge possibility that the recipient will throw these away eventually.  I know, GASP!  So hence, light on the embellishments.  hee hee

For my first card I've used Meljen's "Cuddle Cloud Baby" and just used a Marvy punch I picked up while shoppin' with the girls last weekend.  You'll be seeing more of these on my future cards for sure.


I've used a sketch from Sunday Sketch & Stamping but I'm too late to enter it but that's okay.  I just needed a sketch. 

Stamps:  Meljen's "Cuddle Cloud Baby"
Embellishments: Blue butterfly from Petaloo floral embellishments, Stickles, Hero Arts adhesive lace and sentiment from Creative Memories sticker.
Punches: Marvy small flowers and Magnolia "Romantic Lace Die" Doohickey

Around Cloud: B00, 000, 0000
Diaper: YG 25, 03, 00, 0000
Hearts: R81, RV10, RV00
Cloud: C5, 3, 1, 00
Skin: E50, 51

My 2nd card for today is for the same person as one of these my MIL is giving her.  Yup she paid me for it but the MIL rate.  LOL!

I tried a new skin combo....please let me know what you think.  I was shocked to learn of this combo. (Listed below)


Well that's it for today.  Off to color and find more things to stick together.  Have a nice day!

LOVELY card Eulanda, although I'd be surprised if any new Mum threw baby cards away, they're usually put away somewhere for EVER! I made one a while ago for a friend of my daughter's and the lady who it was for told me that she was going to frame it and hang it in the nursery - how nice was that?

Hope you're having a fun weekend.

Hugs
