Bugaboo Baby

Welcome. 
Thank you for visiting.

This is one of the most digitalised cards I have ever made.

I started with and image from Bugaboo Stamps - one of their Friday Freebies! The sentiment was also computer generated - by me. 


We have a very special wee girl about to join our extended family shortly, so I thought I had better be prepared.


After sizing and printing the image, I coloured it with watercolours. 


After colouring and trimming the card to size, I punched the corners, sponged the edges and added the ribbon.

I love how this has turned out - I just hope the parents will too.

I am linking this to:

Thank you for visiting - and any comments left are deeply appreciated
May your day be blessed.

I am sure the parents will love it. that's a real cute image. I love the digi stamps because you can choose the size you want, and colour it to match the card etc. We have a little boy arriving in the next couple of weeks so I also need to make a baby card. Better start thinking! Kate x

Love the image, Maxine, what a great card! I'm sure the new arrival's parents will love it too. Stamping will always be my favourite technique, but there are so many gorgeous digi images about and I see no reason not to use them alongside the stamped ones. We are lucky to be spoilt for choice with creative tools these days, and long may that be the case!

Totally fabulous. A totally digi card...how fantastic is that! I love the pastel of the nurse's scrubs and the baby's blanket. The corners are perfect...not too much to take away from this adorable image. Great card. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Shelter challenge this week and hope you'll join us again! Hugs, Gail
