Baby Girl cards

Phew, busy weekend!  I had a good old raid out of our cupboards upstairs, all sorted out for the charity shop and some for the dump.  It's always great to get it started, though it always looks worse before it gets better!

Anyway, I got lovely news today that my friend in work is now a Grandma!  Wasn't expected for another couple of weeks, so it was a bit of a surprise to them all!  So I spent a few hours making baby cards :)

This first one uses a never-before-used one that I found when I was looking for another - it's still lost :( but I'm sure it will turn up eventually.  This little duckie is from Suzy's Zoo - it's not an image I would have thought of using for a baby card, but I think it looks OK.
My little elephant is an oldie from Wild Rose Studio, and added some pink and blue splatters to the background - doesn't it kinda look like that exploding confetti!  I covered my balloons and little Ellies toenails with my clear glitter pen so there's lots of sparkle.


And finally, here's one for Grandma herself :) 
I don't normally make 'white' based cards, but I quite like how it turned out.  My little bear is an oldie from Penny Black; text from Paper Smooches.

These are all three delightful!! I LOVE really LOVE this white and pink combo!! Adorable : ) Each one is so super sweet but I think I love the Suzy's Zoo the best. I have not seen that ducky for YEARS!!

I just love every one of these sweet cards : )

All three cards are adorable Lynne! I have to confess that the little duckie is just so, so cute and I think perfect for a baby card!
