Busy Day

Have a had a busy and productive day so far today ... at least in the craft department ... tee hee.
So thought I'd let you see what I have been up to ...
First some baby cards ... don'tcha' just love babies??































One of the baby girl cards will be heading to Natalie (Sequin) from the CB forum, who has just given birth to a bonnie baby girl called Ava Brook.

Isn't that a lovely name?
Following on from that fantastic announcement, I made her son Josh a wee card so's he would know how special it is to be a Big Brother !

I shall pop them both through her letterbox later today, as she lives close by.

I used some of the yellow gingham paper from the Let's Make Cards Kit (Issue 13) for the borders which I tore, inking the edges and sticking them to the top and bottom of the green card blank, also from the same kit.

Then I stamped the words Big and Day on yellow card, with blue and green mini ink daubers, before mounting it with foam pads ... finally adding some silver peel off stars and alphabet letters for his name.

My final project for today ... so far ... was to make something for one of the CB challenges. I always intend to join in but somehow never quite get around to it before the cut off date. So here is the card I will be entering.

It is a T~shirt card made using the papers and embellishments from the LMC kit (Issue 13). The only thing I have added from my stash, is a teeny weeny bit of pink glitter to the centre of the flowers.
