Baby Boy Card

Here's a card made with the Bambino download from Sugar Nellie - isn't he adorable? I suppose it could be a little girl baby, but somehow it looked like a little boy to me. Coloured with Promarkers, and the papers are by Craftwork Cards. The sweet baby and welcome stamps are by Studio G

I used Ivory, blush, sunkissed pink for the skin, and powder blue and denim blue for the hat


We are on babysitting duty today. As we drove Max and Milo to nursery school, Max asked 'are you going to school now Ma?' 'well no Max' I replied 'grandmas don't go to school'. He thought about this for a bit......'you went to school once didn't you Ma?' long pause........'a long time ago. Christmas was a long time ago wasn't it ? Was that when you went to school?'
Wish me luck in getting to Olympia tomorrow - it involves all sorts of train/tube travel, and with my sense of direction being non-existent, I will probably end up in Oxford. Let's just hope I don't get on Eurostar by mistake and end up in France..........

This is the most precious baby image I have ever seen on a stamp. And you have colored it perfectly!I, too, could not find my way out of a paper bag - even if someone gave me a GPS! To compensate, I have become a good map reader, but I must always carefully plot my route with detailed directions coming and going. Nice to know there are others with my affliction. LOL

simply amazing job with that card. Stunning! Loved the story about school. My kids once asked my MIL if she went to school in a one room school house. I thought my MIL was gonna die.

Enfys, that is soooo gorgeous. Takes me back four years to that little newborn moment of watching them sleep. Such a great job of colouring. My colouring would make him look like he was on the Elmo show. Love it!

OMG, you have brought that baby to life!!! That is totally stunning. I cant keep from staring at him. You did a beautiful job on the coloring for this card and image.

Donna said...

Enfys - you are remarkably talented! This card is just stunning. Looks like a photo.
Thank you so much for sharing!

My little granddaughter thinks Christmas was a loooong time ago too and Grandma surely can't be too old, although she says my hair did turn white because I washed it too much. (Starting turning white from blond very early!) I told her it was because daddy use to scare me all the time when he was little!

Blessings, Donna
