Baby Boy

The wife of a lawyer who works in my office had a baby this last week. Of course, that calls for a card. So here it is.
I used this Magnolia baby for the image and colored it with copics. The lace has frosted stickles and the wings star dust stickles and the star crystal stickles. The image is cut out with scalloped nestabilities and edged with sky blue brilliance ink. The star dp is from Basic Grey and the gray is from Bo Bunny. The rocking horse and teddy bear are Daisy Kingdom buttons are years and years old. The flowers and star have blue rhinestones in the middle. And the blue organza bow is tied with a smaller organza ribbon and topped with a star and flower.
Here is the inside.
The feet are from a punch.

What sweeter skin is there than a baby's.

Green Edwin

My son-in-law's birthday is on St. Patrick's Day so I try to make him a card with a green theme. This year I used Edwin.

I stamped Edwin on a glitter kraft card stock and then colored him with prisma colored pencils. I The background around him is done with copic markers. The little shamrock was stamped on green paper, cut out and glued on. The punch at the bottom is from Martha Stewart. A gold layer and a green layer and the card was done. Pretty Simple!

This is one of those sad occasions for a card. I needed a card for the husband of a friend who died recently. I made it a bit bright for cheer because the friend is now in heaven so we shouldn't grieve too much. Of course with her passing we have a hole in our lives.

The image is from Red Rubber Designs and is colored with copics and has stickles on the petals. The dp is from basic grey. A yellow organza ribbon is around the card with half pearls on top. The blue ribbon is iridescent although it doesn't really show in the picture. The butterfly is a paper charm from Amy's Magic and is colored with copics. Here is a close-up.

And here is the inside.
