Baby cards

It's week 64 over at 'Less is More' & it's a theme
this time, which is......
                           How Charming
We have to make and/or use a charm on  our project.
I decided to make & enter two baby cards. I need one for my neice
who is expecting her baby any day now. No idea if it's a boy
or girl as they wanted it to be a surprise so I made two cards.
I will probably make another larger card with their names
or the baby's name etc.but I have a choice now at least. I was in
 need of spare baby ones anyway so these will come in  handy
 at some point I am sure.
Both cards are made using a Pink Petticoat image. It's a sweet babyelephant which I have had for a while now.
The first card is a girl's card coloured in my fav pink again lol. I used
Copics to colour the image and added some glamour dust and
 chalked the edge of the nestie too. A tiny hearts cuttled matt layer
behind it and a pink satin ribbon also. I added a cute 'tiny feet' charm I
have had for ages, I love it for baby cards.
The second card was made the same way except I used a labels two
nestie to cut the main image and a square nestie matt under that one.  A
sweet 'baby pram' charm & an organza ribbon complete the card.
I am so lucky to have a choice of  quite a few charms as I make bookmarks
with them on. I have so many now as I just cannot resist them lol.What
a great surprise when I looked at the LIM challenge this week, I was a
 very happy bunny  :)
We are off to see my first grandson tomorrow , saw my 2nd grandson two days ago
& had a long cuddle. We are also babysitting for both of them soon.... happy days !!!!
ps. Oh oh I just looked on the ribbon girl I NEED more
'stuff' !!!!....... sighs.
