Merry Xmas to the Bump?

Hi, I've finally managed to make something!  My daughter has been quite poorly over the last couple of weeks (but is tons better now) so not had chance to make or post anything apart from my DT card, which thankfully I'd made quite early.

A couple of weeks ago I was asked for two Xmas cards for "the bump"!  It's definitely a first for me, making a card for an unborn baby!  Anyway, the only suitable image I could think of was a digi I bought a while ago from Funky Kits.  Here are the cards I made:

As I'm running waaaaayyyy behind now, they had to be quite simple.  I used some backing paper from the TH seasonal paper stack, and stamped some script onto it (Andy Skinner - Simply Angelic).  I then used some of the images from the paper stack (music etc).  After printing the digi, I went over it in Old Paper DI, then around the edges with Frayed Burlap.  I coloured the hat with a little Festive Berries DI, went over the colour with a clear Spica pen, then added some Ivory Flowersoft for the bobbles on the hat.  Sentiments printed on my pc, and some raffia to finish..  Done!

I would like to enter my "Bump" cards into the following challenges:-
