Baby Cards

We have just finished a Bank Holiday weekend here, all back to school and work today so have time for myself again. Yeah!
The weather was good, actually better than good, usually Bank Holidays happen to be wet and windy here but this weekend was sunny with some showers Sunday evening and yesterday afternoon.
Saturday and Sunday were quite but yesterday afternoon I took Sonny to an athletic competition. We don't have an athletic club here but he does like running and is fast. The competition was between local Primary Schools rather than a club meet.
There was a small enough turn out, but Sonny did great, he won his 100m race. He has qualified for the Primary Schools Finals in a few weeks. He was extremely happy with his gold medal. The up side of all of this, is that there is an athletic club about 40mins away from us, so we are heading there tomorrow evening.


I got into a slight roll after making a baby card for my g-nephew a few weeks ago and I made two more. One in blue and one in pink, yeah, I am a traditionalist. lol.
The sentiment "Fáilte" is Irish for "Welcome"

The image is a Mo digital Pencil "Robin". I like Mo's images as they all have "personalities". I coloured them with ProMarkers, cut them out with x-Cut die and mounted them backing paper. The sentiment I used a nestibility die.

I chalked the die cut, just to help the image pop!

Backing Papers: Blue Gingham - Papermania "Sweet Nothings",
                           Dotty Paper - Pink Petticoat download.
                           Pink - Papermania "Sweet Nothings", DCWV - The Blossoms Butterflies.
Image: Mo digital Pencil "Robin".
Colouring Medium: ProMarkers.
Die Cut: Spellbinders Nestibility -  Fancy Tags, xCut
