Happy Mother's Day- and a BABY!!!

Hello, hello! Happy Mother's Day, everyone!
Let's start off with the most exciting news- my Sister-in-law gave birth to a beautiful baby BOY!!! It's their first boy after 4 girls, so it's a pretty big excitement! My !st nephew!
I'd show pictures of the baby, but I don't think my brother would like that. But here's the card I gave to my sister-in-law when I visited her in the hospital:
Isn't it cute? Well, my nephew is cuter!!!
The patterned paper is K&Company Amy Butler paper and the 2stickers are from Making Memories. I used a Hero Arts card base and a Uni-Ball white gel pen. And a Fiskars punch (way on the bottom, there, see?)

My nieces stayed by my house for the weekend, while their mother was in the hospital, and funnily enough, it was one of my niece's birthday on Friday. (yes, I know, my niece and nephew have birthdays a day's cool!)
So here's the quick card I whipped up for my niece- who turned 7! I can't believe how big she is!

All it is is some Marcella by K fun paper, with a Hallmark cupcake on top. I put the googly eyes over the sticker's eyes, and it became so much cuter, just my niece's type! I wrote the sentiment with a Uni-ball white gel pen.
And now onto the mother's day card! I used the K& Company Amy Butler paper- I just cut out a flower from one of the patterns and popped it up on a Kraft card base. I took some pink K&Company Que Sera Sera paper and a MSE stamp and a Making Memories sticker and made the sentiment! The heart is from the Amy Butler paper and the punch I used is from EK Success.
And....STICKLES!! I hope you ca nsee the stickles all around the flower. My mother loved them.
So that's it! I'm off to do some homework, but the rest of you, have a lovely day!
