~ Sympathy ~

I had to make a Sympathy card for a friend who lost her father.  Not my favorite cards to make.  I used Create a Critter for the flower and Fabulous Finds for the oval.

~ Baby Card ~

My friend became a Grandma for the first time.  I borrowed another friend's New Arrival cartridge to make this card.  I loved the cart so much that I'm going to have to buy it now.  I also used Spring Holiday Cards Seasonal cart for the pink background.  I used the Cuttlebug Embossing folders Swiss Dots and Heart Blocks.  The ribbon was purchased in a scrapbook store in France.  That was so fun~  I made this for Ana, but am also submitting it to Scrappy Moms Stamps: Terrific Tuesday Challenge - New Arrival!~ ( first!)

I didn't use my gypsy or cricut for this one.  I have to thank Lisa G from My Craft Empire for the much needed idea.
