Babies and snakes

I'd big plans to be making Christmas cards this weekend, but didn't manage to get any made.  Instead I've been making a baby card requested by a friend in work.  I've used this good old baby stamp from Lili of the Valley and used alpha sets from MFT and Paper Smooches.  Coloured with watercolour pencils and sparkle added to the rims of the drum; and then a few wee silver stars to finish.  It's a shame I didn't quite manage to stamp his name straight, even with my stamping platform ;)

  • Layout based on Sketch Saturday #542 (but I've just noticed I forgot about one of the horizontal panels!)
  • As You Like It - rubber or digis - always rubber for me, I've no printer so I've no choice anyway LOL!
  • Crafty Catz #440 - anything goes + too cute

I'd forgotten how much I love the splatter effect!  I've used blue and green here to link in with my images.  Snake from Jane's Doodles and rest of images and sentiment from (I'll just check)
Snake and balloon popped up on foam pads; sparkle added to his triangles and to the balloon, and clear gloss to his eyes and teetch.  I doodled a border to match the curly string on the balloon.
I must confess I love how this turned out.  I've been really mojo-less for ages, so it's nice to create something that turned out more or less how it looked in my head!

Both your cards are so cute! I wouldn't worry about getting a little boy's name on the card straight--they never do anything "straight." From my own experience with my son, they're always veering off at an unexpected angle toward new adventures. Your snake is a real charmer, too. He, he. And your spatters provide the perfect background! Looks like Mr. Mojo has settled back in. Have a good week.
