Family Cards-Someone old, someone new

I haven't had a lot of time for crafting or blogging, a combination of bad weather (I hate the snow) and illness meant that both of the girls had a long weekend . Anyway I have managed a couple of family cards. I have received 2 new toys in the past week, an xcut corner rounder (A fab crafting tool I would recommend to anyone, so easy to use even with my carpal tunnel, even Aimee can use it) and my Spellbinder nesties, now I know the right sandwich for my bigshot :)
First card is for my Great Uncle Tom (My maternal Grandad's youngest brother), his birthday is at the weekend.
The second one is for the latest arrival in the family who was born yesterday, Chloe is my Cousin Clive's 3rd Grandchild.
As you can see I use my nesties dies for both of these cards, I can see a lot more cards of mine using the nestie shapes.
WIth the baby card I also deocrated the inside, I know this is becoming a lot more popular and I thought putting the weight etc inside would be a nice finishing touch, hopefully Victoria & Lee will keep the card (I can remember the weight of the girls but I cant remember exactly when they were born is it just me?).
I would like to think I could decorate the inside of more cards in the future but it really is down to time.
Anyway I hope they like the cards.
