Babies...........babies..........

Hello everyone I'm running a tad late today I wont bore you & will just get on. I have 2 cards to show you today..............I know check me out lol. It seems like there is something in the water at the mo as there seem to be babies popping up......or should I say out everywhere lol. Including my own special grandchild in January. So I thought I would make a couple of baby cards, ya know to prepare.....psst also cus Pollycraft Challenge is 'Babies' lol...........
WARNING.....Photo heavy
For the first one I saw this image on Paula's card & got an idea straight away so went & brought the image lol.

I have used 'Rocking Horse' from Pollycraft. The idea behind this card is its ok for a boy or a girl. The body I paper-pieced & coloured the rest with Copics & added a gold pearl to the heart on the saddle.
The fabby sentiment is a Basic Grey rub on from Crafty Emma's Store. I added 2 gold pearls to the centres of 2 small flowers.
As you can see I got my sewing machine out & stitched all around the papers..............yay for me!!

I also printed a smaller image for the inside.
The gingham paper, kraft card for matting & plastic bows from my stash.
Added 2 Gardenia Petals & ataached a gold pearl to the centre.
This one of course is for a little prince. I printed the image out twice & cut the cloud from the 2nd one & attached using foam pads.

Image is 'Moon Lullaby' from the Little Stars collection & he has been coloured with Copics & lace stickles added to the stars. Painted the wooden dummy in weathered wood distress paint & white acrylic.
There is also a basic Grey rub on sentiment there but unfortunately it doesnt show up too well.

Usually I decorate the inside but there are times when I just add 120gsm paper to the inside & attach a piece of card to the back so it feels as strong as the front......... I have again also printed a smaller image for on the inside. The sentiment again is a Basic Grey rub on.

Papers on both cards are 'Baby Mine' Fancy Pants on 6x6 On The Edge card blanks also added card candy.

Well if you got to this point well done you...........I actually had a break half way through & had a cuppa & a cherry bakewell tart lol........mmmmm I loves me some cakes.
Right I'm off now to do some hopping so will see ya soonies. Thank you for stopping by it means a heck of a lot my lovelies mmwah.

I've been visiting our daughter and grandson in Crete - so I'm sorry I haven't been by for a while. I can see I'm going to have to grab a coffee and sit a while to catch up! These are two beautiful cards, Vicky, but I have to say that I just love your rocking horse card. The colours you have chosen are so non-traditional and work sooooooooo well! Stunning! Hugs, Lesley
