Challenge Entry: Baby Shower Invitations

I am still very excited about my new TGF stamps. And so, here are some more cards from me using the Mom & Dad set.

Well, there's actually a back story to why I purchased this specific stamp set.  I've got a few dear friends who are on the family way, and I really think they'd appreciate a little help in preparing for a baby shower.  So here's me, putting my hand up! ;)

Here is a Baby Shower Invitation with the Mommy paper doll.

And the matching Baby Shower Invitation with the Daddy paper doll. Daddies need a baby shower, too! ;)

The pretty DPs are from a new Heidi Grace 12x12 paper pack.  The ribbons are from American Crafts.  I coloured the images with my Copics. Shapes cut with the Cricut Expression.

Now a close up on the paper dolls. :)

I hope my projects inspired you today. :)

I am entering these projects into these challenges.
1 - Penny Black and More - Springtime - My third entry
2 - Lexi's Creations - Mother's Day - My second entry
3 - Anything Goes Challenge - Boyz to Men - The second card should fit right in
4 - Totally Paper Crafts - My Favorite Things - After Hubby got me the Cricut Expression, I just can't get enough of doing shaped cards!  It's one of my favourite crafting tools to use these days.
5 - Crafty Catz Weekly - Mothers Day or A Special Lady
6 - Crafty Sentiments Designs - Things with Wings - The DP on card no.1 got some pretty butterflies on it!
7 - Top Tip Tuesday - Mothers Day
TOP TIP ALERT: To add some interest to the usual scallop circle punched out die, I pierced the scallops with a sewing needle.  It's quite simple to do, and it adds that extra something to the usual die cut. :)

8 - Papertake Weekly - One for the Girls... Or Mum
9 - Kaboodle Doodles - Show us some Green
10 - Deep Ocean Challenge - Butterflies - The DP on card no.1 got some pretty butterflies on it!

It's me,
