Just finished up an 8 card order....

Since doing all those canvases, it was so hard to get back into the card making mode. I had to keep them fairly clean (no distress inks) and also, 4 of them were bereavement cards with "no" flowers! Those were tough. Here's just two of the baby cards that I made.

The first one is a Hanglar image and the Lion image is from the Magnolia collection.
These look so plain, like I want to throw something else on them. I just needed to ...walk away. lol
So I've started a new canvas today and it's coming along pretty fast. Hope everyone is having a great week so far.
hugs to you all,



Very pretty! I wondered what happened to you! :o)

I really love the layout designs on both of these cards Leslie. Beautiful colored on both images and they both looks so adorable :o)

Candy said...

Hold on Hon!!
Both cards are completely wonderful.
They are classic! I know they both will be very well loved and appreciated.
Flowers and ribbons are nice - but really they can be over used. These ones show the image clearly - which is most important and show case your wonderful papers
Excellent work :o)
Hugs, Candy

Tow fabulous cards Leslie.
I don't always like a lot of flower on cards. Sometimes they become the focal point instead of the image.
These are so beautifully made.
Hugs Maz

I got the lion card with my baby shower present! This was the only card I wanted to keep. I love it! I am a designer and love to geek out on cool paper designs, I brought it to work and now you have a few more fans! Keep up the great work!
