Cards for New Babies

Things have been pretty hectic for the last few days. Three weeks ago my kitty bit me in the finger as we were trying to put her in the carrier for her annual visit to the vets. By afternoon I had a pretty good infection started in my finger, by the next day a big infection which required surgery on that Friday night and 3 days of IV antibiotics in the hospital. Of course, it was my left index finger and as you have probably guessed I am left handed. So I was out of work for the next week. Then I was already to go back to work when I then develop the worst cold that I have ever had; I think from the hospitalization. So my cardmaking has suffered but now I am back on track. So...this weekend I have put together some baby cards. I am still planning on trying to sell some cards, coasters and other things in June at a local craft fair. Wish me lots of luck as I have never tried this before. Here are the cards I made with my new Whipper Snapper Stork Stamp. I love Whipper Snapper Stamps and I had some paper on hand such as Bazzill, DCWV and GinaK base weight. I used some momento inks and copics for coloring. The stork is colored differently in all 3 cards as I was trying to decide which I like best. I like the lighter one best-that is with C1 in the Copics. Added some ribbon and some brads and used a Colorbox stamp for the "Its a Boy and Best Baby." Then on the inside it says A New Little One by Impression Obession. So...see what ya think... Pink
