Caramel baby

Just a quick post from me this morning, as work is calling - I really do not want to go in today - I came down with a rotten cold yesterday, which added to the going back after 2 weeks off was the last thing I needed!!

There is no new challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink as the Favourite Stamp challenge is running for the whole of August, but I couldn't resist making a card using another of my favouritist LCI images!  It was a tough choice I can tell you, but I decided to use one of  the images from the Baby Baby set - this is a gorgeous set of Baby images and sentiments

I decided on a muted colour scheme and went for a some creamy Bo Bunny Double Dot and Journal CS with some cream and chocolate Bazzill, as the card can be for a boy or girl and is quite contemporary.  The lace and the flower are by Prima and the printed ribbon is by East of India.  The dotted button is from a local haberdashery store

I coloured the image with copics, added a smudge of Antique Linen on the edges and matted on chocolate and cream cardstock .  There is a touch of glitter on the edge of the blanket

I got this sweet little wooden charm at Ally Pally earlier in the year and I've hung it on a Tim Holtz hitch fastener.  Getting some more of these are definately on my shopping list for the next show!!

And don't forget, you can still get free international shipping and buy one get one (same or lower value) half price...  what are you waiting for!!

Please can I enter my card into these challenges

Thanks for looking, more tomorrow
