buttons bows & baby grows

Hello my crafty friend I do hope you’re all keeping warm and safe, I have to admit I am hating this cold weather Bbbbrrrrrr Brass monkey weather it is for sure(never really understood that saying but hayho) I prefer the warmth of summer lovely and hot I keep saying I was born in the wrong continent but still never mind when I will the millions I can move where ever the sun is shining (hehehe).
Anyways I have 2 cards for you today yes 2 for the simple reason they are baby cards and I decided to make one for each sex again these are just for fun cards. I am so enjoying doing these at the moment and, how can you not, with the super cute images Mo Manning has just released (ADORABLE!!!!!)

So I best show them to you hadn’t I?

Girl card

Remember I said I would make a different size card other than 8x8” well I have. (blimey I can hear the gasps from here hahaha)don’t get too excited they are A5 so nothing fancy but I am thinking of starting to make some fancy shaped ones like I used to years ago
Anyway for the card as I said it’s A5 in size and I have used Kraft papers and a beautiful baby paper with all nursery rhymes on the Kraft is from pixel scrapper but I can’t remember where the baby paper came from (sorry)
Boy card

I removed the background from the image and added it to some more Kraft paper this time this one has stars on and once I had coloured the image using my polychromo pencils I added glitter to these stars (well why not I’m having withdrawals as I haven’t used much since Christmas)

Then I added thread to some buttons and tied in a bow and from the same thread I made some small pompoms and added one to the bottom of the card

For the insert I used the same papers as the front and brought the image through like I always do then added a short verse and there you have it.

I don't know why the girl card has more of a yellow tinge to the lighting as they were taken at then same time so Sorry about that :o(

I actually coloured 4 of these images I did 2 in pink and 2 in blue but one was a pale one on each and the other was a little deeper in colour I just wanted to see which I liked more but anyway I will leave you with a list of challenges and another look at the images

 these are the other 2 I coloured

Challenges  Make your mark (polychromo pencils) buttons and bows anything clothes (baby grows) ATG Cute and Kraft ATG with loose glitter (stars)

Happy Crafting
