A beginning and an end ......

Hi everyone.  My mojo must be returning these days, as I have found some inspiration from somewhere.

Firstly my friend became a Grandma .... Her daughter gave birth to a gorgeous baby girl ......
And then another friend has buried her Dad.  Two very different aspects of life, but a certainty for us all.

I made two baby cards.  One for the proud parents, and one for the proud Grandparents. Very similar so that Mother and Daughter could not argue about who had the nicest card.  Anyway congrats to both sets of proud parents.

The papers for these are by First Edition.  The gorgeous shapes have been cut using Nesties and the "Baby" sentiment was cut on the Cricut.  The die cuts are of course Forever Friends.  I have finished off with ribbon, lace and card candi from stash.

Sadly a friend had to bury her Dad recently and this was the simple card I made.  The agapanthus was stamped using Versamark and then heat embossed.  Simply then matted onto black and white card from stock, before adding a black ribbon bow at the bottom.

Crafty hugs for now.
