Welcome Baby

Hello everyone!  I had said that for October my goal was to post a new card each day.  I think this will come in very handy with Christmas coming and me trying to finish off some card orders for other people.  Yesterday was the 1st day of the month however my scheduled post seems to be missing and appears to not have posted, so here I am having to retype it.

For those of you who know me know that there have been a lot of baby things happening around me. My niece recently turned 4 months, my boyfriends brother and his girlfriend had twin boys a couple weeks ago and a bunch of my friends are expecting.  So naturally because of baby fever I've been working on baby cards because I need to make sure I have some on hand.  

This post is not one but 2 cards.  Both cards started from scraps in my scrap box and evolved from there.  In the supplies used section I will link to as many materials as possible, however because some are scraps I don't have links for some items.  

The image used for each was already cut out and coloured.  The little outfit she's holding and her dress were incomplete.  I had the 2 colours of onesies already stamped and in my drawer so I thought it would be perfect to build a card based on that.  The solid coloured circles and rings were already cut out as were some of the background pieces, so making these cards came together pretty fast.  I used my favourite baby paper packs for the paper and was able to make some amazing cards.  

Here's a front view of each of the cards...
