LOTV Baby Cards...


Hi Blogging Beauties,

I hope you are having a lovely day...
I am having a stay at home day today...my favourite type.  I havent achieved much yet.  My brother has been out here fixing some plumbing for us so I have been talking to him.  It is not often I get to hang out with him alone...so I have been making the most of it.  He has gone off to another job and to get more parts so until he comes back later it is onto my to-do list!  But first up, I thought I would share a couple of cards....



This next month or so a lot of my friends are having babies and the first two arrived this week.
They were both caesareans so I knew when to expect them.  The first one is  little girl named Nadiya Karis. I am not sure how you pronounce the first name as I have only received a text and an email.  She is my cousin's little girl and third child.  I was actually making this card as she was being born.  I guessed a girl and got it right!!  We had a power blackout for five hours when I made this card so I did it by candle light and torch light!  It was hard too, because I was trying to incorporate the pink and purple colours and it was difficult to see.



For both cards I used a LOTV die cut which you can purchase here.  These are fantastic for making quicker cards.  No colouring involved.  I also used a sentiment designed by Netty.  They are free if you are a follower of her blog and she has heaps to choose from.  I recommend you go and check them out here.


Here is the boy card...his name is Duncan Rodney (named after his Grandad).  He was born to one of my school friends who now lives in America.  It is her second boy.  This card is much more simple and fuss-free.  Same die cut and same digi sentiment.


I am still waiting on two friends to have babies...so no doubt you will be seeing more baby cards soon!  And my baby is only seven weeks away now...not so long to go I guess!


Thank you for stopping by my blog.
I hope you have a fabulous day!

These are GORGEOUS! I really love these soft baby images, I've never seen them before! They are very sweet. And you totally rocked it for working in the dark! Your layouts and embellishments are perfect. (i'm a little biased, my fav color is purple!) lol

Your baby will be here before you know it, so you better get plenty of cards made before hand! You will be too busy/tired to do them for a while after the little bundle gets here! I hope your husband will be as "helpful" as mine, he would race me to get her up from her naps, or feed her!(it was pretty funny)

Oh another couple of fab cards. I love LOTV and these two are so pretty. I'm so humbled that you've used my freebie sentiments on them again. I particularly love the first one, pink purple and girlie, my fave !!
