Welcome to our family & Miss you

This first card is me playing with a Hero Art Kit (I hate to admit how many are waiting for me to play lol) I think this is the September kit (not the fox, the Copic coloured branches and leaves and flowers and the leaf cut oval panel.
I cut the leaf panel from a watercoloured piece of paper that had some distress ink in pale green and gold on it. I then cut the same shape again but didn't add the oval outline so it cut just the leaves and left a white base around the oval cutout. On the card base I blended pale greensand blue in Oxides to fill the background. Flicked some water. 

Added the white overlay with the leaf cutout then worked out where I wanted the fox. Added the fox then the green oval cutout leaf frame and then randomly attached the Copic coloured leaves and flowers.

Finished off with the gold 'Miss You'. I cut all the leaves from the kit with my Scan n Cut as it was quicker after stamping and I could do the full sets in one go, stamped twice in less than 5 minutes.

Next up I couldn't resist sharing this photo of my latest grandson in my handbag :)

I have a favourite saying with all my grandchildren will say 'Ohh what was that?' as I hold them close 'Ohhh you want to come home with me?' then I tell my kids 'he/she wants to come home with me, so I will just put him/her in my bag and get going'.
Aaron & Rachael have the same sense of humour and thought it would be funny to take a photo so here it is.
 I call it "Getting busted trying to sneak out of the hospital"

This is the card I made to welcome Koby into our family.
I love this baby image from Mo's Digital Pencil, it is so sweet and gentle. I coloured with Copics.
Inside I stamped this sentiment I have had for ever as I still love it just as much as when I first bought it. I have had it so long I cant actually tell you where its from sorry. There are a quite a few sentiments in the set.

After colouring I cut the Copic cardstock out with my Sizzix stacked deckle frame die then cut another layer in pretty blue to add behind. The die cut 'welcome' in silver mirror card added next then stamped the 'darling boy'. All done.

He is such a cutie and you are such a caution! Just love the first card. The whole thing works so well together with all the different elements in the right colours and the frame just sets it all off. Glad you've had time to play. Lots more time now the next colouring challenge is up and running soon! xx
