Celebrating Life

While we will be celebrating the life of a cousin gone too soon on Friday at a mass, I have a friend who will be soon celebrating the arrival of her baby.  I've designed a couple of cards here for her to use as her baby announcements  I hope she likes them.

The first card is a really simple card using the circle and oval scallop punches together and the individual Sweetness Unlimited stamp.  I'm so happy that SU! has come out with this individual stamps because sometimes a person only wants one image or greeting for certain events as opposed to a whole set that they will only use once.  I used Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, and Razzleberry Lemonade dp along with some ribbon and designer buttons.  The ink is actually Rose Red and is a pretty close match for Melon Mambo.

My next card was inspired by one of the cards Leigh Ann at Sketch Girl  sent me with her blog candy.  It's a simple enough sketch and I got a chance to use my new Top Note die inside the card for a place to write all the baby specifics.

I used all the same paper and colours except I used the scallop border punch and the Favorite Teddy bear stamp set.  I hope she likes her options because I'm right out of ideas this week.

Take care my friends.  Have a wonderful day and Happy Crafting.
