Baby Cards

*****I do realize many of you have already seen this so just ignore.  I just wanted to repost it so it was on my blog.  No need to recomment.  THANKS!  

So I begrudgingly set to task to make 2 baby cards - for some reason they're hard for me - and came out with a couple that were cute.  I tried to stick with simple and for those of you who know me IRL, you know that's almost impossible.  Also, it's a huge possibility that the recipient will throw these away eventually.  I know, GASP!  So hence, light on the embellishments.  hee hee

For my first card I've used Meljen's "Cuddle Cloud Baby" and just used a Marvy punch I picked up while shoppin' with the girls last weekend.  You'll be seeing more of these on my future cards for sure.

I've used a sketch from Sunday Sketch & Stamping but I'm too late to enter it but that's okay.  I just needed a sketch.

Embellishments: Blue butterfly from Petaloo floral embellishments, Stickles, Hero Arts adhesive lace and sentiment from Creative Memories sticker.

My 2nd card for today is for the same person as one of these my MIL is giving her.  Yup she paid me for it but the MIL rate.  LOL!

I tried a new skin combo....please let me know what you think.  I was shocked to learn of this combo. (Listed below)

Well that's it for today.  Off to color and find more things to stick together.  Have a nice day!
