New Beginnings

I love to make cards for new babies – such a happy occasion! The last one was a girl, but this is for a (male) colleague whose partner has had a lovely baby boy.  I kept it simple with my favourite baby-related image from Uniko (Some Bunny), The sentiment is from Uniko as well, and the background is watercoloured.

This one is entered into two challenges:

AAA Cards Challenge #106 Something New


The Male Room #76 New Beginnings

The haiku for this one:

Little fingers grasp
My old hand, tightly holding
out promise of hope

Welcome baby girl

Here’s a couple of pink-themed cards for a baby girl!  With congratulations to Kylie of Happy Little Stampers, and one or two other people I know who have new baby girls…

Can you tell I’ve had a day off today? Including some crafty purchases and some playing with ink and paint and paper…

Here is a card for someone who is expecting a new baby in a couple of weeks. Just time to get people to sign it 🙂  The first time in ages I’ve used patterned paper: I have SOOO much of it (just managed to resist buying more today)!

This one was inspired by Jenni’s card at  Muse Challenge #208

and also entered in The Paper Players Clean and simple baby cards – just under the wire…
