New Life - 2 Challenges

Hiya everyone, I hope you are all well, what a horrid Monday morning weather wise, all my windows have frosted and have condensation and I cant scrub em for another month ugh it drives me mad! Hubby has tried but its that old saying if you want something done right do it yourself lol Bless him he really has been a superstar these past few weeks! he is currently out there cooking a fry up, I dont think its for me as much as it is for him though lol, and hes chucked the dinner in the slow cooker for tonight, whats he after??????????? he still has that little pile of ironing to do too lol, I may as well push my luck slightly whilst I can :O)

Anyway I have two cards to share for two Challenges, both have a theme of "Something New" and "New Life" and seeing as my third little bundle of joy will be arriving in another month it made sense to me to get these cards for her siblings made now.
This first one is for The SugarBowl Challenge who have this fab sketch from Lillian to follow with the optional to include "Something New"

I have gone with "New Baby" and its for my Daughter Sydney when her little Sister arrives, I coloured the image with promarkers, and the papers are Mme.

Thanks for

This second card is for The Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge who have a theme this week of " New Life" and as always the inspirational words over on the blog are so worth reading!!!

So this card again is "New Life" although the image is not completely that of a baby, but it is my intention to use it as the card for my son when baby arrives. He would query me if I gave him an all pink card lol, so I had to go with blue and try and squeeze the pinks in there lol, the image I coloured with Promarkers.

Thanks for stopping by and
