Baby, Baby

Edited to add links to the baby dress templates.
Scroll down.

My sweet friend Rena became a grandmother yesterday.

I'm so excited for her.

This will be in her mailbox when she comes home from meeting her grandson.


I started by stamping this retired SU stamp "Two by Two" on 
Arches watercolor paper with Memento Tuxedo Black

Then I watercolored by swiping Stampin' Up! markers on an acrylic block
and picking up the color with an Aqua Painter.

The water is sponged on.

That allows me to take this to 



Lions and Lambs, oh my!
Simon Monday Challenge Blog
I have lions.

While I'm  on the subject of babies....
My Merry Monday teamie, Katie (Sweet n Spiffy)
recently had a baby girl.

Here's the card I made for baby Adelie.


You can find a template here.

and this one for big sister Ansley!


A template similar to this is  here.

Thanks for stopping by and for your comments.

Enjoy!

Love the Ark card Bonnie - such beautiful colouring! And the baby and big sister cards are so, so lovely! And such a sweet idea to include big sister - I always do that when new siblings come along too.

I've gotten behind on visiting again, so what a joy to see this trio of beauties tonight. Your w/c skills just amaze me, and what a delightful image for a new little one. Also loving the tiny dress cards - so delicate & pretty. How sweet of you to remember the big sister too. Love that lace & tiny rose on #2, and so will she. TFS & Big hugs.

The two by two stamp is my favorite for making baby cards. I love how you've watercolored it here. Fabulous! Those sweet little dress cards are just too, too cute!
