Newborn baby girl card (OLL #74)

Pink, Pink and more pink is the theme for challenge #74 over at Ooh La la this fortnight.

My card is for a newborn baby girl, and therefore as pink as it can be! For it I used several pink papers from the Silhoutte Magic and Fleur d'Imagination CDs; the adorable newborn baby image I am afraid I can't remember where I got it from, my apologies to its creator; the sentiment is Raindrop Echo Designs; ribbon and buttons from my own stash. I also used my new XCut Running Stitch border punch and the Cuttelbug polka dot embossing folder. I hope you like it.

Stampavie and more - Monochrome
Phindy's Place - Monochrome
Stampin'B's - Monochromatic card

For my Valentine :-)

My Valentine and I are not the romantic type, if you know what I mean, so the kind of card we exchange on 14th February usually has a humourous feel.
For this years card I searched for the thickest cardboard I could find; I roughed/distressed the edges and included 2 hearts, red and kraft cardstock, faux stitching, and a pair of digital boxers from Whimsie Doodles; the sentiment is stamped with GStudio alpha stamps; red gem from my own stash.
Not everyone's idea of romanticism, but as said, it works for us ;-)
Some challenges:
Crafty Sentiments - Valentine/Love
Creative Cowgirls - Love is in the air/Valentine
The Pink Elephant - Be my Valentine
Aud Sentiments - Valentine Sentiment

Man card

I am always stuck for ideas for man cards. This time I got inspiration from a card I recently saw on the net (I am afraid I didn't take note of the creator at the time) and am quite pleased with it.
All the bits - photo corner, ribbons and the backing paper, are leftovers from my own stash. The sentiment, which I adore, is from Raindrop Echo designs; the image of the vintage watch that I printed on the paper is a freebie (not labelled); Nestabilities Labels One; papers distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
Onto some challenges:
Karber Weekly - Use something old (the vintage watch digi stamp)
Paper Playtime - Digi Anything goes
