Why I didn't play WOYWW this week

I was busy going to see my second grandson who was born early this morning.Isn't he cute and yes that's me holding him, they are both fine but still in hospital tonight as they want to keep an eye on his mum.

Before we got the news I had made these cards though so I thought I'd show you them now.

This one is Festive Willow on a sled full of presents, I masked them , cut them put, mounted onto some printed baking paper, used my holly punch around the page set and then used vintage christmas flowersoft on the holly. The little greeting was printed onto the same paper shrunk down, punched out and embellished with some stickles.
This card is for Whiff of Joy and ABC Christmas Challenge.

This is the card for the new baby, some gingham paper made by Bev Rochester, a little vest from Deedee's Digis which I made into a png so I could put the paper behind it, I added the little duck that comes in the set, made the greeting small and punched it out when printed. I added some ribbon and the infinity trim punch which I trimmed to make interlocking hearts, I'm not sure if you will be able to see it but it is there lol. This card is for Die Cut Dream Challenge.

This is a silver blank, embossed with snowflakes folder, mistletoe kisses digi from Designed 2 Delight coloured with promarkers and cut out. I used the infinity trim punch and cut out a scalloped oval from some Dovecraft paper from last year. I punched some small snowflakes and added some small stars to the middle of them.
This card is for I Promarkers and Die Cut Dreams Christmas Challenge
