Cards for Little Ones/New Babies

Here are a couple of cards I made the other evening. I have already done this card in blue and pink...but when I coloured it in lilac it looks so cute I just had to make another card. I used Tilda in the tub stamp again, See D's cute as a cutton stamp, Junkitz papers, Bazzill cardstock, Doodlebug button, SU scalloped punch and I used a Sakura stardust gel pen to add some sparke to the wings and bubbles.
The next card is made using the Tilda on a cloud stamp, Junkitz papers, Bazzill cardstock, Doodlebug & American Craft buttons, American Craft ribbon. I am calling it "Heaven Sent"...I want to add a sentiment, but am waiting for something in the post....and it's not here yet. Again, I have kept it neutral enough so that it can be adapted for a new baby or first birthday...or even a 2nd birthday....

I received my first order from Magnolia today. I ordered direct on 11th February and then heard lots of comments about orders never received, and taking months to arrive, so I was a little surprised when the postie dropped them through the letterbox this morning. I did however have duplicates, having purchased them from shops in the UK. I didn't need to worry though as the five/six duplicates were sold within an hour....will have duplicates in the next order, so fingers crossed they sell as quickly. So after all that I checked my emails this morning to see that my Paypal account was hacked last night and someone had sent 2 payments totalling $1800 from my credit card. I spent most of the morning filing claims with Paypal, thankfully they noticed last night and place limitations on my account so that they couldn't take anymore money. Unfortuately they cancelled 2 genuine payments that I made last night I had to sort those out too.... So now passwords have been changed and details checked, and fingers crossed I won't have to deal with anything like it again.
