Welcome Baby

I used the gorgeous little digi image from Sugar Nellie for this one, the papers are old ones from my mile-high pile, and the letters are Making Memories and American Crafts


Coloured with promarkers. I used


Ivory, blush and soft peach for the skin


Blosom and dusky pink for the hat


Talking of babies, my two little men, Milo and Monty will be two soon. How time flies. When we last saw Milo, about a month ago, he was a silent little chappie, pointing to what he wanted, saying 'mama, dadda,' and that was about it. I was so delighted yesterday when he came on the phone and said chirpily 'lello Ma. Lub you Ma. Bye bye.' Grandchildren bring such joy!

What a fantastic card. Your coloring makes the image lift off the page and you just want to hug that baby. I love your story. Our granddaughter turns 2 in a month and I hope to see her soon.

Sweet baby card. The image looks like a photo it is so lifelike. You are so right about grandchildren. Lucky me gets to see my two boys almost daily. If it does happen that I miss several days I suffer from withdrawal.

Your baby is painted so real looking and so hugable. Grandchildren grow up waaay to fast. I'm ready for great grandchildren now, but my grandchildren aren't. Shame on them!
Hugs,
