Baby Blues


The letter 'M' is 3d mounted and then stamped over with baby foot prints, the safey pins have been punched out along with the ducks. I used turquoise blue for a brighter colour and for a change from pastels.

Well having a much better day today, Praise God! I got a commission this morning to make a card for a baby boy, his name is Mac and as we were unsure of the spelling, we decided to just use the letter 'M', my customer also wanted some ducks. This so happened to tie in with this weeks Daring Card Maker mid week challenge! "to make - a card with a male in mind. Be it Baby boy, Little boy, Teenage Boy or BIG "boy" I was going to do an adult card, but why make more work for myself?! Great news also- did really well on ebay tonight, down side was they were on non-craft items, but going to keep at it and see if there is something else crafty I can do to attract those ebayers.

I love the way you've balanced the "busyness" of the card with just using two colours. Hope your customers like it!

This is lovely Esther, I bet they'll love it.

I've been making a baby's first birthday card this afternoon, so I've been "blue" today too! The light here is non-existant so I'll have to do my photos for the blog tomorrow
