Baby Boy cards

I've no baby boy cards in my stash, and I figured that in future I'd make 2 to always be one ahead.  Sounds like a good idea eh?  We'll see  how that one goes ;)

For these cards I've used an older imge from Lili of the Valley which I love, he's such a cutie.  Both coloured with watercolour pencils.  I wasn't sure how they were going to go as I was using some old unloved DP from my stash, so I'm pleased with how they turned out in the end :)

  7. They are two lovely cards Lynn. What a sweet image too. Barbxx

  8. I like these cards a lot! That sweet image is so great for a baby boy or even a toddler. Sometimes I try to make two cards when I only need one, too. I don't always have the time, though. It seems I'm always squeezing in a few minutes here and there to make my cards. It's a good thing I have a space to just leave my mess and come back to it when I can.
