Baby blues!

Not me I hasten to add, unless it's 30 years late:) I've got a couple of cards to show you, both are blue and one's for a baby!
This week's challenge over at LIM is as follows:
For our challenge  this week we have chosen
the theme
New Baby!

                                                      Here is my take on the challenge:

Hopefully it's CAS enough, I've used a NBUS die from Memory Box and paper pieced it with a small piece of the deboss side of the EF that I inked before embossing . Two pearls and an old SeeDee sentiment complete the card.
Just realise that it's a similar challenge over at Addicted to CAS where the code word is NEW so I'm adding it there as well:)

My second card is for a challenge over at Craftyhazelnut which is an ongoing Christmas card challenge that I haven't taken part in since I began my blog 3 years ago!

For today's challenge I'd like to see Christmas cards with shades of blue (other colours can also be used, but please make sure there is plenty of blue).
I am also entering this card into Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge extra which runs every month and as long as it's a Christmas project anything goes. This gives a chance to create Christmas cards of your choice.

 I used more NBUS goodies,with a stencil and stamp set from Stamps Away and a touch of glitter. Come and see:

Finally I had to respond to the first of three wedding invitations that we are invited to this year! This one is in April and is my DIL's brother's wedding and the invite is different and quite contemporary. I decided to respond using their theme which was well received and here it is:

Thanks for taking the time to visit and I hope you've had a good weekend:)

Great baby card Val, love the MB die and embossed background. Love the Christmas card - really different, would make a great "batch" card for Christmas. Fab wedding invitation - love the different fonts and the way you've used the theme for your acceptance.

Val, what a treat to stop by for a visit today! Your baby card is just darling! Your Christmas card is unique and modern and exceptional!! And, finally, your mind works like mine (are you scared?!) because I would have done something like you did for your acceptance. The invitation is so cool and you showed them how much you loved what they did by your clever response!! Lastly, good job using all that NBUS!!!

Hugs, Darnell

Great sponging on your baby buggy card. That's a great way to add color to your white card. It makes it look so soft and is really clean and crisp. Thanks for joining us in our NEW challenge at ATCAS. ;)

Oh Val I just love all these pretty cards. I had your blog page open and ready to comment on for days now but this cold hasn't helped me. I love that first blue one, love that pram & all the matching dottiness ( is that a word?). The second is amazing, what great stamping and colour. Love the others too, well done with all of them :) Viv xx
