The first one uses some of my favorite wrapping paper again! The shape just 'evolved'! It started off as a 1/3 & 2/3 front opening - but then I put it on its side and this happened!!! Had to then work out how it could be secured for display so added some holes and ribbon for the recipient to tie!
The second card uses some gorgeous glittered paper I got in a pad from The Papermill Shop - they had loads of colour combos's in the pads - and other bits to match too!
The beads hanging from the bow were part of some old jewellery I took apart! I used some gorgeous gold flakes on Anya's top.
I've heard that both friends liked their cards :) I'm so glad....................crafters are the worse kinda people to make cards for!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This kit can be pre-ordered up till August 7th at the fantastic price of 26 Euros (approx £22.44) and they will be shipped August 21st.
As always the images are being kept a secret - however there is this little teaser for us...
Isn't she gorgeous - but then would you honestly expect anything else!
But, I said you could get them for free didn't I......................
.................To celebrate this new launch Katharina - who designs the text stamps, is giving 2 sets of the whole kit away!! Get over to her blog by either clicking her name or the WOJ image in my Candy Jar to find out how you could win them. This candy is open untill July 26th.

These were both ordered by a girl in work.
Each one uses:
x56 size 3 Pampers, vest, sleepsuit, trousers, jacket (all 3-6 months), bib, socks, muslin squares, teddy and a fleece blanket.
I always make them with larger nappies and clothes as newborns always have LOADS of clothes, plus I'd imagine mum would like to keep this up for as long as possible without worrying it's all going to get too small!!!!
The boy cake also has baby oil, bath & lotion, booties and bath thermometer.
The boy socks are made into candles and the girl ones into roses (I'm no gardener!)
I also make 'Ingredients' cards to go with them so mum knows what's in it.

I was going to use this for the Sketch Saturday challenge - but went to add it and noticed there's a cut off time, that I missed! Never mind - I'll have to try and get ALL of my challenge cards done at the weekend - Why does work always get in the way of having fun???
The papers are Daisy & Dandelion, image is coloured with WC pencils then glossed with Anita's 3d Gloss.
I had to 'patch' the backside of my son's jeans this afternoon - so left the sewing machine out to sew a few pieces of paper together too! I love using my machine on cards, but don't do it often enough!
