The CD Sunday Challenge - Bundle of Joy

Another cold day but no snow flurries so far today,  they say this is going to last through April.   I feel so sorry for farmers in Scotland and the Isle of Man whose sheep are buried in snow drifts of twenty feet,   I hope they will be able to find them before they die,  many must have lambs or near to lambing.

Lets change the subject this weeks theme on the CD Sunday Challenge is Bundle of Joy, Link to their blog 
This week I ended up doing two cards boy and girl.  I used the backing paper from the CD Crafter Essentials Background from My craft Studio. 
I put the words bundle of joy in the top balloons.
I matted the image on gold miri card,  I did these images in Parchment some time ago and then lost one of them,  by the time I found one I had lost the other one.  I sorted out my craft stuff the other day and found them both,   so before they disappear again I used them on these cards,   I used a cradle peel off and then embossed and on a grid did dots inside of the cradle coloured the bows and heart in pink/blue.  
I used a stork peel off in the top corner,  I used pink baby ribbon with the words "its a girl",  I thought I had the same for a boy but I could find that so he got a plain blue ribbon.

I hope where ever you are,  you are warm and dry, in the meantime  take care, and thank you for visiting my blog today.
