The Babies Are Here

A dear, dear friend of mine recently became a new grandmother, welcoming 2 very healthy twin baby girls.

She will be receiving this card any day now.


And this card will go in the box with the 2 baby blankets I crocheted for the little ones.


 I used a paper pack called Little Treasures from Kaisercraft.  The flowers on the first card and hot air balloon bunnies and small sentiment on the second card were included in the pack.

September Progressive Challenges

Today I am sharing the cards I made for two progressive challenges.  Each month you play, using their digi, you receive a new digi for the following month. 

My first 2 cards are for the September DOTM Challenge at Imagine That!.  The Meerkat digis are so cute I just couldn't make meerly one card! 


I am also entering this second card in the Something, Anything, Everything Challenge #93 at Double Trouble. I've included a pumpkin as my harvest element and am also entering the Dies R Us Challenge #177.  The scalloped circle dies are from Spellbinders, the brown circle die is from Sizzix, and the foliage dies are from Impression Obsession.


***********


The second progressive challenge in which I always like to participate is at The Outlawz.  This month Hettie Clare Art has gifted us with a really cute image called The Little Ballerina.

 Here is my submission for the September Progressive Challenge:

 


Candlewick Ovals by Spellbinders frame the digi image, which is partially colored and also paper pieced.  I know my niece will love receiving this for her birthday.


Thanks so much for visiting!

Super 4 year old Birthday

This card was all but finished when the mailman made his rounds today.  Guess I'll be making a stop at the post office, in hopes that it will make it to its destination on time.





This is a Double Z Fold card.  

I followed a tutorial by Sandi MacIver here.  Thank you, Sandi! 

The Super Heroes were fussy cut from a sheet of scrapbook paper.  The sentiments were computer generated.

The number 4 was a made using a Recollections die.
