Welcome Baby and Happy Birthday

I came home from a rough day at work today and escaped for awhile to my craft room.  The mojo was flowing (surprisingly) and I created these 2 cards for some upcoming challenges.  This first card is of course to commemorate the birth of my new little grandbaby Isabelle.  I used Echo Park's Little Girl collection.  The felties are from a package I picked up in the clearance bin at Michael's...adorable, no?  I used this great sketch from Sassy Lil Sketches:

This next card I made for my husband's aunt who has a birthday coming up:

I was inspired by this week's challenge over at Birthday Sundaes to use pink/green/white on a card.  I also used the 8.17 sketch from Let's Scrap.

Being creative helped me to relax tonight and put the day behind me.  And now my work week is 2 days down and 3.5 to go.....yay!



  1. very pretty in pink cards Sandi!

  2. Super cute cards, love all the pink! :-)

  3. I adore the carriage on the first baby card - perfect way to welcome Isabelle :) Your Birthday Sundaes card is a wonderful take on the challenge - I really like how you used a tag, I never know how to incorporate them in my projects!

    Being creative is definitely a great way to relax. Glad it helped! Thank you for playing along with Birthday Sundaes :)

  4. Both cards are adorable the first one is so cute and just lovely combinations of colours and embellishments. Isn't great how crafting can relax us after a difficult day. Thank you for joining us at Sassy Lil Sketches and good luck.
