Just Magnolia #2 and Sketch Saturday #48....Tiny Baby & Little Star!

Hey! We are back from Kieran's 1st Communion it was a beautiful Mass and all the children looked like little angels. Kieran was sooo good and even smiled a few times for the camera, lol! We had a lovely afternoon and he was very pleased with himself! We ordered Chinese food for dinner as a little special treat and then the kids went back outside to play! I went and finished up these cards that I have been working on in between all the busyness of this weekend!
I'm so pleased with both of them but I am partial to this little girl card....too cute! I used the fab sketch over at Sketch Saturday for both cards but this baby girl card I made for the challenge this week at Just Magnolia! The challenge is to use pink and green.

I stamped Tingla on Prism Simply Smooth White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then made a mask on a yellow post-it note and then stamped the ribbon. I love this Magnolia ribbon stamp from the Valentines collection it is sooooo versatile when you want something for Tilda and Edwin to sit on!
I picked up this great paper called Baby Safari by Little Yellow Bicycle. I just love it and I think it will be great for other cards not just baby cards! The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on. I coloured the heart in with a pink Sakura Stardust pen. I am just loving these Prima flowers with the leaves attached. I added Shimmez here and there to Tingla and the flowers. The ribbon is American Crafts and the heart brads are Making Memories. I cut the ribbon slider for the sentiment with my Nesties die.
Here is the baby boy card, again I used the great Baby Safari paper and followed the Sketch Saturday sketch. The sentiment is stamped and from a Fancy Pants acrylic baby stamp set...I love this set! I coloured the star in with my Sakura Yellow Stardust pen, ribbon is from my stash and star brads are Making Memories. I used my EK Success Scalloped scallop border punch on both cards.

I finished the insides on both cards cuz these cards are going to be packaged up and added to the sale bin. Well, actually the baby girl card is already sold, yay!!! I can't believe how well the cards are selling and all the $$$ that I raise in the month of May is going to The Canadian Hearing Society (where I work as an American Sign Language Interpreter).
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!!! Hope you have a great week!!!
