Wet Baby

Having missed the challenge deadline for yesterday's card - I wanted to be sure to get these posted before they were too late!  I have two cards to share.

I made my first card using a Tear Drops Stencil from MFT on a panel die-cut with a Stitched Mat Rectangle from Lil' Inker Designs.  I sponged only a portion of the stencil using Archival Cornflower ink.  The stamps are from Asian Garden Additions from Waltzingmouse.  I added 3 little dew drops to the stenciled tears (I haven't used these dew drops in years!)
I'm entering this card in the CAS-ology Cue Card - Wet challenge.
I have a friend who owns a sweet little baby shop in a neighboring town - and she buys baby cards from me to sell there.  I made this card to show her for possible purchase.  The blocks are from the Multi- Step Baby set by Kitchen Sink Stamps using 3 shades of pink ink  (see the baby shoes stamp on this card here)
Here you can hopefully see how 3D the image looks - it's really cool how the multi stamps work-  I die cut the panel the blocks are stamped on with a square Nestability.  The arrow is a die from MFT and the white panel was die cut (again!) with the stitched mat rectangle die from Lil' Inker Designs (I think I have used this die on almost every card I've made the last few weeks!!)
I made this card in 3 colors -  for girl babies, boy babies and for 'sex not known yet' babies!
For the design on these sweet baby cards I used the Wanna Sketch?

Wow on those rain drops and how you added the dew drops to them! The sentiment is perfect for them! The second card is so cute and perfect for the baby book!

I have blog candy for a card and/or donation to little girl receiving chemo for Leukemia.
