One Baby........Three Cards

Three cards to share today to celebrate the birth of a beautiful baby girl, Lillie, who arrived last week..... one for her grandparents, one for her parents and one for her four year old big sister.

First the card for Lillie's grandparents, (my crafty friend Ruth and her husband, Jim).  The stamped image is by Woodware and is coloured with Promarkers.  I used a Spellbinders 'Dainty Dots' embossing folder for the background. 
I am joining in the following challenges with this card:
Alphabet Challenge ~ A for Anything Pink
Bizzy Bec's March Challenge ~ Anything Goes

 Next the card for Lillie's parents.  The image is a NBUS £1 stamp I bought in Hobbycraft some time ago, coloured with Promarkers.  The image is die cut with a Memory Box 'Stitched Circle' die and matted on a Spellbinders Lacy Circle die cut.  The embossing folder used is Crafts Too 'Baby Feet'.
I am joining in the following challenges with this card:
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 219 ~ Used pink snippets
NBUS (Never-Before-Used-Schtuff) Challenge #6 


 Finally the card for Lucie, Lillie's big sister.  Lucie has a chocolate brown Labradoodle who she adores, so this lovely pre-coloured digi stamp from Beccy's Place was just perfect.  The embossing folder is by Sizzix.  I added a paw print punched border across the middle and made a banner with Lucie's name on.  
I am joining in the following challenges with this card:
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #156 ~ For a Special Woman (hope this special little lady counts for the challenge)
