Precious Baby Cards

Hello Friends!
I hope you're having a FABULOUS week!
Been a little 'eventful' here at the Pavlick house but, it's all good now!

Today I'm trying my hand once again at the CAS (clean & simple) design style.
I'm thrilled to say my card for the last challenge over on the Addicted to CAS challenge blog was selected among the Top 3, so I thought I'd give it another try!  Their theme this time around is BABY.  So, here we go . . .




Okay so yes ... I got a little carried away!  LOL

I have used Tim Holtz Oxide inks to create my background colors and an old Fiskars Stamp Set for my sentiments.  My first card was obviously created for those occasions when you don't know the sex of the baby but need a card.  Then of course I needed one for a boy and yet another for a girl.  

I LOVE this giraffe  ... isn't he cute!
He's from Cheery Lynn Designs (#B794).  
For the first two cards, I die cut him 3 times and glued them together.  On the last card it's just a single cut.  Nuvo White Crystal Drops have been used for an added element of dimension.  OH YEA, and of course a little satin bow around the giraffe's neck was needed!  LOL

What fun I had creating these cards!
I hope you'll come join in the fun over on the Addicted to CAS Challenge Blog.

As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!

I love this giraffe, too, and, oh, my goodness, the quote on the first card! You know I'm fond of CAS and I do try, but it's not so easy. You've done a beautiful job on all three cards. Congrats on your Top 3! It sounds like you made it through your events okay, but I hope they weren't too distressing. Here's hoping the rest of your week and weekend is more event-less!
