Baby Baby.

Oh my word,what an amazing amount of talented card makers joined the Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge for a fortnight of anything goes! Apologies for not getting round to everyone for a close up look,but even from the thumbnail photos I could see the talent shining through!
The challenges are back to weekly now that Karen and Julie  have had time to recharge their batteries and the new theme for this week is "Baby Baby"

My card was a real easy make. Just a small card cut with my Nestabilities and Cuttlebug,I keep toying with the idea of a die cut machine to cut the Grande Nestabilities, any recommendations would be gratefully received. I coloured my old favourite image by Pink Gem, using Copics,It's a gorgeously easy image to colour!

The Hello stamp is hand cut and check out my lovely woolly bow, I picked up a skein of darning wool ages ago,does anyone actually darn anymore?  I hope I can find some more,I just love the look it gives. I then just tied some knots of ribbon to the die cut ring before adding a bit of inky stitching,some 3d pads and some teeny tiny buttons.

I'm using my card for the following challenges:-
Pretty Little Ribbon Nov4,Buttons and bows,
Crafty Sentiments,New Baby,
Oldie But Goodie,Buttons and bows,
MIM62,,Anything goes.
Thanks for stopping by,

Oh my sweet friend. This is sooooo darn cute. I love the shape, I love the color of paper, I love that cute giraffe, It is all so adorable. I was thinking of you the other night when I was going crazy trying to color a reindeer with my copic markers.. YIKES... I colored that reindeer at least for times.. It still didn't turn out to good.. You will see it for my next City Crafter post.. Don't laugh to hard when you see it!!! Only if we lived in the same country!! Hee Hee!!

Hugs, Linda

I love this sweet, sweet baby project! Green and yellow were my fave choice when we adopted our youngest! Now his room is bedecked in wall-sized giraffes! Your inking and coloring is so subtle, and simple, that the details of your whole project are all easy to see! I found you at Make it Monday! **Roberta
