Final Sept Challenge over at Simply Scrapping Crafts ( only a little late!)

Poor Clare has been poorly with a sore throat and fever, so is only a Tad Late for posting the final challenge over at SSC for September....  Yeap it is the final challenge...
Our sponsor for September was EAD Designs.   And our theme is "Baby Cards"

My card is a Hybrid today....

New Baby


 I started by printing the Lion image ( from  Meljen's Designs about 18 months ago.) I coloured him with Grey tone Copics and cut him with a Nellie Snellen die.  My PP was some digital gingham ( not sure where I got it though) I used a Fiskars stamp set for the sentiment and finished with a big dark blue bow.  One of my younger friends is expected her second child any time now, so if it's a boy .... this is for Heidi.... but if she has another girl.... well I'll have to get busy.

Had the all clear at the surgeon's yesterday!  He is pleased how the back is doing.  Today I called into work to have a morning tea for my retiring boss.   It's her last day today.  I made the card that everyone signed for her... a bigger one than I usually make.....

Retirement card for my boss


So it's back full time on Monday.... the first three days are on training..... over the other side of town... 35kms away!!!  Will mean a 3/4 hr car trip after I get to work...  That's a bit of a bummer... but I'll cope!

BTW- the carrot cake was a success....  All that was left were 3 small pieces that I bought home for hubby~

Cheers

Dawn

Hi Dawn! I love the die cut that you used on your lion card...such a cool shape. Your coloring of the lion is perfect too...softly shaded and I bet your retiring boss was so happy to get your special card.

Hello Dawn
Glad to hear that you are all healed and back to work on Monday,you have had a good break but I guess you are ready to return and socialise once more. The two cards you have made are lovely, I love the Nellie Snellen die, its perfect for the lion.

I'm glad they all liked your carrot cake, Dawn and so nice to hear you received a good report from the doctor! Take it easy now, on your first full week back. Love the adorable lion card and you already know how beautiful I think that butterfly is! :)

Love both your cards. The lion image is very cute and fits well in the die cut shape (which I really like). It is a shame that it is SSC's last challenge.
Glad to hear that you got the all clear from your surgeon. Take it easy as you head back to work.

Dawn, so pleased to hear you are well and going back to work, love the way you have coloured the lion in grey tones, makes for a really cute card. Your butterfly card is so pretty with that gorgeous die cut.
