Fairies, Fairies, everywhere!

Hello blogworld

Do you ever find that you start making one type of card and you end up making a run of them?  You may remember that I made a new baby card for a friend (who is still waiting for baby to put in an appearance by the way) I then needed an extra boy one as another one of my friends, we are both friends with the same girl, asked for one of my cards to give when baby arrives.

Luckily I had an unexpected, but not unappreciated afternoon, on my own to make the cards.  Grandad is staying with us for the weekend (father-in-law) and there has been a little trip out to a scale railway which did not include me!  I asked Emily if she'd like to go with just Daddy and Grandad - and she said yes!!  I was most surprised but happy that she was willing to go without me, but it's lovely that she is is getting 'Daddy time'!

So I used the time most wisely and, along with watching last nights Dr Who, hoovering, doing the dishes, bleaching the sink and bringing in the washing I made another two baby cards.

This means I have two baby fairies to show today - one girl, one boy.

Baby girl card:

Baby boy card:

Details on cards:
They both use Stampavie: Mo Manning - Fairy Kiki (it's probably meant to be a little girl, but I thought for babies it doesn't really matter).
Coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers, with a touch of glitter on the wings.
Both die-cut with nesties.
For the baby girl card I used Prima Marketing - Sparking Spring Collection papers.
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Card blank and sentiment from Craftwork Cards
For the baby boy card I used First Edition - Up, Up & Away papers.
Sentiment is an Elzybells stamp.
Buttons, ribbon and fluff all from my boxes.
Craftwork cards blanks.

Hopefully I should be back tomorrow with another card - one of Emily's little friends has now come down with Chicken Pox, so got to do her a get well card.  If I don't make it tomorrow it will be Tuesday.

Hope everyone has had a good weekend and be back soon.
