Babies and Kitties

hi everyone! Boy did we have a rainy day yesterday! Not long after Riley and I finished our walk the rains came in and it didn't stop all day long. It was wonderful! The only thing that would have made it better was if I had been home instead of at work, but I still enjoyed it. Today I have two cards to share with you. The first one is one I made for my best friend's daughter who just found out that she is expecting a baby in July! I found this darling scrapbook paper at Michaels and used it as the background and also cut out some of the cute things on it to adorn the inside of the card.

the image is called Baby Bump from Squigglefly, but I cut the silhouette of the woman out and mounted it directly on the designer paper. Here's a look at the inside

My next card uses a brand new image called Beloved Kitties from Squigglefly. It's drawn by Suzanne Urban and I love the grouchy look she's given this kitty!

I printed the sentiment that comes with this image directly on to the card stock base and my image is colored with colored pencils. I added some yellow stickles for his halo, glitter on his wings, and puff paint on the clouds. He looks grumpy even though he's on his way to heaven! The whole time I was making this I was thinking that it's lucky for my kitty if this is true! I'm sure anyone who has ever had a cat can relate to this.

There are more new images by Suzanne at Squigglefly - in fact all of the new ones that I thought were coming out on Saturday are there now, so run take a look! I hope you have a fabulous Tuesday, and thanks for looking!

So cute. I love the baby bump! I found out yesterday that a young friend is expecting number 4. One every two years. She is so sweet and happy all the time. Her hubby in a kindergarten teacher. They are the people who should have lots of kids.
The kitty card is adorable too.
