Baby cards

 I needed a new baby card and a first birthday card recently, and, after seeing this baby card by Debby, using a new Mo Manning Baby Digi called Hush, I had to have it! I printed it and coloured it with promarkers. I stamped the base card (not very well - I need to practice with these stamps!) with Inky Doodles Little Patchwork stamps in various shades of pink, before giving a general dusting of Tea dye distress ink to make it look a little bit shabby chic. I added a sentiment and a ribbon to finish it off.
My second card is for my great Nephew's first birthday. This Mo Manning Digi (called 'I Love it!') was particularly apt in that he loves his train, but the little boy in the picture has quite a lot of hair compared to Elliot! The base card was stamped with another inky Doodles stamp from the Country checks set, in two shades of distress ink (tumbled glass and tea dye). The stitched alphabets are from Inky Doodles and the sentiment is from Little Claire.
Thanks for looking and for all the lovely comments. I hope I will manage to visit you soon!

  6. So adorable cards. Love the cute images you used. Your coloring is fabulous and the background on your first card is gorgeous. I like that it isn't all lined up.

  7. So different from your usual style Sally but both are just adorable ! Love the baby one, we have another great grandchild on the way so I might have to indulge in that digi. Your colouring is beautiful too.
