Fall Flower Babies

A quick diversion from Bali Breeze to show you two baby cards I made recently & forgot to show you – one for my cuz & his lovely wife who welcomed their first beautiful son Jet, & the second for a friend who welcomed her first son. First up is Jet's card (as if you couldn't figure that out):The bubba from 'All in the Family' was stamped in blue bayou ink, water-coloured & punched out to fit on a metal edged tag. The letters (from the 'Big Deal' alphabet) were also stamped in blue bayou ink, cut out & raised on some spotty 'Fall Flowers' paper. The welcome baby is from 'Short & Sweet'. I've used more Fall Flowers paper & some soft sky ribbon on the base.For this one, I've used more Fall Flowers paper & my favourite giraffe image from 'Wild About You'. The greeting is from a great retired hostess set called 'Riveting' from the 07/08 catalogue. Both the giraffe/soft sky layer & the greeting are raised on dimensionals. This colour combination of blue bayou, soft sky, celery & white is one I'm going to miss a lot too.

Anyhoo, hope you enjoy the baby interlude. I'll be back soonish with more Bali Breeze & Eastern Blooms. Hope you have a great weekend.
Cheers, Di

PS: IMHO 'Short & Sweet' is one of the best value & useful sets in the catalogue, as it's only $29.95 for 12 images.
PPS: I will have a brand new unmounted 'Riveting' set for sale in my upcoming retired stamp set sale. Stay tuned if you're interested.
