A baby shower & some sympathy.

Two post in one day, heck!!!

My Mum is going to a baby shower this Saturday (hi Mum) and asked me to make a card. It was a great excuse to get the new 'Baby Bundle' set. I saw this card when searching on Splitcoast & thought I'd CASE it. I didn't need the box so stuck with the card. I'm not 100% happy with it & the pic doesn't do it justice. Maybe it is just too busy with the pram filled with goodies. What do you think?

I changed the colours to Pink Pirouette & Baja Breeze as I love them together. The ribbon is retired baja satin and I used the modern Label punch (again, LOL). The sentiment is from the ever reliable 'Short & Sweet' set. I hope Mum likes it.

On the other extreme, my friend Sarah lost her 98yo grandmother this week. I wanted to make a simple Sympathy card using 'Thoughts & Prayers'. I returned to Splitcoast & came upon this card. I loved the unusual use of the stamp. I'm not very good with too much white though, so added a 'Pear Pizazz' background (I love this new In-Color) and changed it to a rectangle card. It is a bit hard to see, but I also stamped the top of the tree in white on the bottom corner. It is also hard to see, but I added tiny pearls from the new SU 'Basic Pearls'. The main image is popped up on dimensionals to give some, well, some dimension! It was hard for me to stop & not add anything more, I'm not good at CAS.

I hope you're having a great week. Thanks for visiting,
Love Fi xox
