the second one...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and happy...well all my best efforts went out the window yesterday and I had one of those sofa days, you know the ones where my butt's attached to my eyelids...I just couldn't stay awake at all...so no crafting done, no DT work caught up on and no hitting the shops...but not to worry I will restart my motor this morning and get all the work done I need to do...well did you all have a guess at which one of the baby cards my beautiful Daughter and her other half chose then?....it was a split decision, she loved this one and her other half loved yesterdays...so they took them both lol...see she goes from not liking my cards to taking both the ones I made...I hope the new parents love them both...this one is using the amazingly beautiful Simply Adorables Bambino from Funkykits...I love love love colouring the Adorables, every single one of them

I coloured him with distress inks, distressed the edges and even finished the inside again, I don't think I will do that with every card though as it really adds time to card making...the stunning papers are from the Prima Printery 6x6 paper pad, this pad is so beautiful, soft and vintage and perfect for a timeless baby card don't you think...I finished it with some cream ribbon and a bow on the inside and outside and a stunning Oval Frame charm from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, if your wondering how to get the centre paper to fit in a the frame, put your paper face down on a soft surface and press the charm into the paper which leaves an impression which is easily cut to shape and stick inside the charm...the sketch I made up as I went along but I'm entering this into the Lollipop Crafts and Allsorts challenges...right I'm going to get myself up off my butt and get on with what I have to do today so watch this space lol...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one

He looks so real!!! An adorable card!!Last night i finished a card i started a week and a half ago. I had to work extra and when i was at home i was to tired to craft. So i know what you mean. I even went back to bed friday afternoon. Sometimes a person needs extra sleep. Enjoy your day, Colinda

Oh wow, this is just stunning. You have coloured the little one so beautifully one can actually hear him/her breathing. I thought as much ... glad they took both creations ... a huge feather in the cap for you.

Now, I'm not into babies, they squeal and cry and are sick at both ends, but I have to admit, I love this! I agree with you about the insides of cards - as nice as it looks, I'd rather save the papers for the outside, lol! Hugs Sxx

Hi Mina. Just spent a few minutes catching up on what I have missed in the past week. Haven't been around, life keeps getting in the way of my craft/blog time. Your cupcake looks so yummy. Wish I could taste it through the PC. I choose baby card #2. Sorry about the umbrella dance. I hate when they do that too. Take care friend. Linda
