From Birth to Retirement

There are a couple of similarities between the two card I have for you today - Colour being the main factor although it wasn't intended.

The first Baby card covers a number of challenges...
Our Creative Corner Sketch - Sketch
CCEE - A card created with a nursery rhyme in mind - this is "Rock a Bye-Baby"
Colour Create Challenge - Aqua/Khaki/Brown/Cream - so I used Baja Breeze, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla.

I cut the baby carriage from Fun and Fast Notes and turned it into a bassinet - then attached it to the branches with wire through an eyelet. It does rock in the wind - but I promise it's secure enough that the baby won't fall!!!

The second creation uses images from Sugar Creek Hollow - Today is Fabulous Friday and so a Freebie Hummingbird is available for you HERE. All of the DT members are using the same colours in their
creations for you today - Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla.

I love these alphabet flash cards that Tracy has created and I'm hoping that more letters will be coming in the future.

The sketch for this card comes from The Sweet Stop Sketch.


Be sure to check out the creations for the other Design Team Members - and have a Fabulous Friday!!!! Thanks for dropping by - Joan
