Vintage baby card

Somehow I acquired these 3D stickers, which are a bit vintage looking and decided to use them on a baby card. The theme on Stampin' Sisters for Christ challenge 8 is to make a baby card or project, so this is for that.

It's also one for Crazy Amigo 'birth cards'.

I'm not sure what the background paper is (it's actually the same as I used on one of the sympathy cards I showed earlier - strange to use the same background for such different occasions, but it seems to work for both).

The sentiment says: for your precious little one

Sympathy cards

Day 143 on 365 cards was 'keep it to yourself: sympathy - the idea being to make a sympathy card without the wording on the front.

Sadly, we need to send one tomorrow and I also need to make more ready for my friend's coffee morning - I find that they always sell - a sad fact of life. I always feel that it's a time when crafting shoudl be understated, so these are very simple:

Monochrome blue (well, almost)

This is for a 'new to me' challenge blog Le Creablabla - their challenge 79 is this sketch, with the option of using monochromatic blue:

Pink fairy tale

I've made quite a few cards this evening - some of them are more recycled Christmas ones - a few others, but no time to take pictures or blog (perhaps you heave a sigh of relief!).

I thought I'd show this one for Cuttlebug Spot 51 'pretty in pink', using a cuttlebug embossed folder over a piece of pink card with various shades, then swiped with a chalk ink pad. The fairy is a rub on.

This is also good for 365 cards day 202: 'once upon a time' - inspiration from a fairy tale (this fairy could be from many a tale!), also for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday 36 to make a pink card.
