Something to sing about!

Good morning everyone! Hope you're not snowed in wherever you are! There's quite a lot of the white , cold, wet stuff here at the moment but I'm not even sulking! I'm so happy to be posting my first DT card for the amazing Songbird Challenge blog! The challenge this fortnight is "Baby Mine" sponsored byDi's Digis. There are prizes to be won and you certainly won't want to miss the amazing cards the rest of the DT have made, so hop on over and take a look!
This is a really timely challenge for me as one of my best friends is about to become a grandparent for the first time! The baby is now overdue and we're all on tenterhooks! I've made two cards as we don't yet know if it's a boy or a girl (so exciting!!) The beautiful digital images are by Funky Kits, I think they look amazing just as they are, without any colouring!
This is the inside of the girl card.


The boy card


As you can see I've left this image uncoloured! I've kept the design of these cards fairly simple as I wanted the focus to be the lovely images.
Hurry up baby!
Thanks for calling by, have a great day

What lovely cards. The images are so calm and serene, you've done a great job on both of them. Love the shaped easel card with the blue image and the fancy folds of the pink card. Very nicely done! Hope the baby arrives soon! Thanks for sharing with us at A Gem of a Challenge!

Your projects are beautiful and your friend will love them I am sure! I love the uncolored image, it has such strong visual impact! Nicely done! I always find it exciting when couples choose to go old school and leave the sex of their child a mystery! Life is lived so exposed these days...this is nice!

Marie said...

Love these images. Your cards are perfect for baby, soft, sweet and gentle!

Rosemary said...

These are lovely, and yes, you are correct, the images are beautiful as is - but you've colored the pink one so prettily. This is the kind of card a parent puts in the scrapbook to savor. Really nicely done. Perfect for our Opus Gluei theme of thinking pink. I'm glad you shared your creativity with us, hope you return for more challenges!
