New baby hybrid cards

Hello Everyone

I had a surprise phone call today from Shirley (Fashionable Stamping Challenges) who is back in the area for a week and we met up today with Claire, Amber and Irene to have a natter and to craft a little bit. I had hoped I would be seeing her Wednesday night but wasn't expecting to see her today, so that was a lovely treat. Thanks for a great day girls.

So onto my cards for today. My son's best friend and his wife have just had a baby girl and because they didn't know what sex it would be I made a card both for a baby girl and a baby boy.

I used downloaded images, papers and elements to create these in PSE, then added some decoupaged and 3D embellishments to them once I had finished. I need to make more of this type of card as they are flat and will post with a normal stamp on them. You know how expensive it is now to send anything that won't go through that thin slot in the post office!!

I found a fabulous site selling scrapbook digi kits called 'Digital Crea' and very reasonable prices too. Just love the elements that are included with papers. My images I think came from 'The Graphics Fairy'.

I hope your week goes well. Thanks for stopping by today.

Brenda, these cards are just so precious. They are masterpieces! I felt the pain at the post office today on any of my Valentines that were not absolutely flat. Perhaps I need to go flatter more often. I am so excited for you that you got to meet up with some of the FSC DT today. What a thrill! Happy Valentine's Day! Yvonne
