Baby Boy Card

My co-worker Tomomi asked me to make a baby card for her friend who was expecting a baby boy. Tomomi liked one of my previous cards I made using the loopy frames on the SYI cartridge. The monkey card can be found here. Based on this format, she knew exactly what she wanted, the colored frames with a little baby boy in the center. The baby cut out is also from the SYI cart. Since it was for a baby boy, I decided to use pastel blue, green, yellow, and blue.

I’m also entering this challenge for Momo’s Tuesday Challenge where we had to make something with a baby theme. Enjoy!

Flower Pot Birthday Card

I've always wanted to do a flower pot card. I just think they are so darn cute. I've done the paper flowers in a pot before but never as a card. Momo uploaded a great tutorial on how to make them, and I was so suprised at how easy it was. But I will admit, it takes A LONG time to "arrange" all of the pieces together. My first attempt didn't work out so well. The colors were off and it came out a bit small. This is actually my 2nd try at it. Leah my co-worker wanted me to make a birthday card for a friend who was turning 40. This is my take on a "fabulous at 40" birthday card. Enjoy!
