Babies on the brain

Two of my close friends are expecting babies!!!  It's so wonderful that we will be surrounded by little ones again!  There's nothing like the smell of a new baby, cuddles and those teeny-tiny smiles!!

I made these cards as a celebration of their news.  It was a little hard at first to find the right image, but find it I did! Over at Mo's Digital Pencil Too! there are tons of gorgeous stamps and this is one of them!  I used my Copics to colour them and the flowers were made by Karen from my Sassy Blinging Babe flower swap.  There's also a little sewing on the cards, some paper layering and a little bit of  Stickles.  I chose to do the cards the same as neither of these two ladies knows each other, and they don't work in the same place.  Plus it was easier to create with the same products!

Here is a little closeup of the card (and you'll see the true colours a little better.  The weather has been horrendous lately and this was taken on my patio early one morning before work in bad light!)
That pretty pattern around the flower is actually a rub-on.  I don't really like rub-ons cause they always seem to stuff up and not work properly, and these were no different.  But I wanted "something extra" around the flower - something to frame it I guess.

So a huge congratulations to my friends - can't wait to meet your new arrivals!!!
