Friends' cards

Hello again. Finally managed to get on the computer, as I had to pick up my grandson from school yesterday. He is 5 and he had me making daisy chains all the way home. I thought my school run days were over as my youngest is nearly 14. I don't mind really as he loves me picking him up from school. I have got both my grandsons for the weekend. What to do??  Hopefully the weather will stay nice and we can take them out.  Now back to the crafts. My O/H thinks I'm beginning to get obsessed with cards and blogs. Well I told him its a very healthy hobby LOL.  As I have not had time to make any new cards I have uploaded some I did a while ago for my friends.

Baby Cards

I just had to upload these cards I made for my grandaughter's 1st birthday. They come from The Clipart Fairy Book A Easel & Plaques cd which you can find HERE
I absolutely love her website.

I made this card using The Clip Art Fairy again for my daughter's first baby and my fourth grandchild. Her baby is due at the beginning of June so I will be putting a name plate in place of the flowers. I just had to show you the card. Made into an easel card using lots of glitter again. I think I put too much on this time as you cannot see the lovely pattern on the papers. You can get the interactive image HERE
