Babies Galore

This autumn has seen a lot of new additions to families of our friends and I've been busy rustling up celebratory cards.  Here are a couple of them.

The yellow and blue one is my favourite.  The nappy pin is a decorative button that I'd forgotten I had.  It's amazing what you find when you delve to the bottom of your craft supplies!

More Doodledallions

What great weather for card making & blogging (in the UK it is foul weather today).  I love this new digistamp set and had to give it another go.  There will be plenty more goes too I'm sure!  I was hoping for a swirly and glittery card but masculine.  Probably a bit of a mad combination but this is what I came up with.

The design is based on a sketch from the Card Patterns blog.  The competition was already over before I found it but it just inspired me anyway.  I have only just discovered this blog and am rather taken with this weeks sketch as well.

Wedding Overseas

Hi everyone, I have so struggled trying to find an image for a card to celebrate my friend's wedding,  It is an Asian wedding and non of the usual wedding images seemed to work.  Then I found these images from Fred, She Said (Flowering Hearts Doodledallions Digi Set) which I think are lovely with the hearts incorporated.  So this is my first effort with my new digi stamps.

I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday #76, though I did miss an element or two off the sketch.  However, I gave it a go.  I love this sort of image, I know that sweet little characters are all the rage at the moment for stamps and digi stamps but they are just not my thing.
