I am back! And have been a bit busy...

Good morning bloggers!
I have been quite ill, together with the rest of my family. We all had/have a really bad cold with fevers, couhgs, the lot. I am feeling much better now though and as I got something really important coming up on Saturday (not giving anything away, but will let you know afterwards what I have been up to...) I need to be on form!
While trying to keep the kids reasonably happy and myself not too much left out I actually made a few cards. As I have still a lot of preparation to do until Saturday and having two nice ladies come on Friday morning to my house to learn all I can teach them about cardmaking (How cool is that???) I keep this short and just show you the pictures now. If you want any infos on any of them, which papers, stamps, colouring technique etc. I used, just ask and I will answer, promise! Well, here they are, hope you like them!
The first one is for the friendship swap on Do crafts.



This one is a new Baby Girl card for a work colleague of my other half. She is german, hence the greeting...




The next one is for the Magnolia challenge on Do Crafts again, the theme this time was "Sugar and Spice", a girly card using 3 different papers (I hope vellum counts...).




I seemed to be on a roll with girly baby cards and did two more! One for a new arrival and one first birthday...






Hope you liked my cards and thanks for looking!

Gorgeous cards, Alex. You really do 'pretty' baby cards brilliantly.
Love the 'Two Scoops' papers for baby cards - well girls perhaps not boys.
