Ooh Baby, Baby.

Hi there,
By heck I`m on a roll this week, don`t know what`s up but I`m enjoying it lol.
But first I`d like to welcome ScrappyMo as my new follower. Thank you for choosing my little blog :-)

I`m here to share a couple of baby cards I made over the weekend. I`m entering them into Pixies snippets challenge to make up for upsetting the playground with my unfortunate comment. I also want to say that to redeem myself I popped along to the local park and bought some duck food this morning. I would send it on for use in the duck pond but on the way home I was mugged by a couple of mallards and a swan. I think it`s called Karma !!!

I`m also entering them into Darnell`s NBUS challenge 



Although for this challenge it`s `Anything Goes`, the emphasis is on friendship and mine are baby cards, my excuse is that you have to pretty friendly to produce a baby AND babies are usually friendly creatures aren`t they?  ( I did say it was an excuse)
Right, I`ll stop waffling and show my cards,

Everything on them is a snippet apart from the base card and the pearls.
All the DP`s are from the snippets box, the white panels are made from the backs of cards that I`ve messed up stamping onto.
The tags are from the strip that is left over after cutting an A4 sheet into a 15x15 square.
The vellum that I`ve stamped on is from sheets that have random bits punched and cut out and the `Baby` die is cut from tiny snippets.
For Darnell`s challenge, my `Never Before Used Stuff` is, the Baby die, although I`ve only owned it for two weeks, and the tag. Now I have used some of the larger tags from this set but this is the first time I`ve used this smaller one. And lastly, the `Welcome` stamp. It`s from a Flourishes set that I`ve had for about 5 years and I`ve never inked that particular stamp before now. I know ...I`m pushing it a bit..

Phew, if you`re still with me and not totally confused, thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  3. Well, I have to say red wine makes a terrible mess on a monitor! I lost it with your "you have to be pretty friendly to produce a baby!" You just sort of rolled that in there, but I caught it and I lol!! Oh, my, yes, indeedie sweetie, you do get a little friendly!

    Now, seriously, settle down. Your baby card design is fantastic, Lynne!! You've got the gingham card base, the layered angle, the patterned circles and that sweet heart, all of it punctuated by those wee pearls! Mwah! Love this!!

    Thank you so much for joining in my NBUS Challenge, posting my button, and spreading the word to your readers! It's appreciated!! Now I'm off to Pixie's to see what the heck you said about the ducks ... Hugs, Darnell
