Mo Babies

Hi Guys!
This is going to be a picture heavy post so be forewarned. 
It's all Mo's fault though so you can blame her. :-)
A friend of mine asked me to make a boys baby card for her latest grandchild about to be born and wouldn't you know it, I had given away all my boy cards a month or so ago?
So there I was thinking what am I going to do when Mo suddenly goes into baby production!
I was spoiled for choice and couldn't decide so I made four. lol
Today I am showing you three of them.

How cute is this little squirt?
My Recipe:
Papers: assorted
Sentiment: TLC
Image: Mo Manning
Banner Dies: Whimsy

And next up is Biker Babe!
He reminded me of Fonzie so Happy Days seemed appropriate.

For those of you who don't know Fonzie:
(see the resemblance?)
OK, the hair is a little different. But this is 2011. Is it 2011? Or 2012? I don't know I lose track)
Frankly, I never watched the show but young boys always imitated him, much to their mother's annoyance.

Ok! The paper is assorted once again, 
image: Mo Manning
Mesh: from stash
Heart brad: from stash

To me the kid looks a little not impressed to be dressed up  like this!
It's time for parents to stop living through their kids!

And finally The Stinker. I mean The Thinker! lol
I love the image but am not loving this card at all!

Paper: DCWV
Scrolly Die: Sizzex
Image: Mo Manning

Look at that shweeeeet wittle face!
Who would believe he could make such a pong!

So which one did my friend choose? None of them! LOL
She chose a fourth card which you'll have to wait to see as it fits an upcoming DT project. :-)
Sorry-o and all that.
Happy Crafting!

I love all three of them, Dorcas! I would have problems deciding too. I think I'm really in love with the first one though after studying them a little more. Sorry I haven't stopped by in a while. Can't remember if you knew or not but I contracted a severe case of poison ivy right at the same time I accepted 2 commissioned projects and it was all I could do to get them finished on time with all the miserable itching I was doing! It's all better now though and things are slowly getting back to normal. How're the ducklings doing? They should be pretty big by now, huh?

How do you manage to sneak these past me! All are totally fabulous cards but I have to say that the little guy sat so miserably on the potty has to be my favourite if I had to choose one. Beautiful cards Dorcas.

So cute! Love how you did them on kraft paper! I think you are the world's greatest colorer (is that a word? LOL!)

Does it show my age if I admit to having watched Fonzie? :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog...I love porcupines! There is the cutest one named Willow at our local zoo and he does a porcupine dance it is the cutest thing you ever saw!!

I do very much admire you projects. I love the designs and the colouring is awe inspiring.

I have just recently attempted your skin tone tutorial on Kraft paper. I wasn't able to achieve your effect, but it was an awesome starting point. I linked back to your tutorial for my friends.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Kathy said...

All three are so cute! I think the third is my favorite, just cracks me up, his face is so funny. Your coloring is fantastic as always!
