Oh Baby!

Good morning bloggers hope you are all ok!  I am scheduling this post as we were at Starlight Express last night in Manchester and this morning I am off to London to look after my darling grandson Harrison for the weekend - wish me luck!

I am going to be a grandma again in December so I thought it would be a good idea to start practicing on some baby cards. Melissa doesn't want to know the sex of the baby this time so it is going to be a surprise when it arrives. I always tend to make girl baby cards so I thought I would make a boy for a change.

I have used an image from Mo's Digital Pencil - isn't it precious?  He has been coloured with Copics and no his jacket isn't dingy its grey to match the papers!!  He has been cut and layered using Nesties.  The papers are from a new collection at Nitwits called Petal Fresh (wow!!) and I have used Whitewash Coredinations.  I have used some Pearl card for the embossing at the back I think its a Cuttlebug EF and the heart at the front which is a Marianne die.  The sentiment is computer generated and the little pearl hearts have been coloured with Copics and are from my stash.  I found a little verse on the internet at this site

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Sketch 'n Stash - Sketch 17 stash used hearts, pearl card, heart die

Bronte and Bellas/Mo's Digital Challenge - Straight from the Heart
Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
Cropstop - Are You Feeling Blue?
Southern Girls - Oh Baby Baby
Paper Makeup Stamps - Anything Goes
Paper Playtime - Anything Goes + Sentiment
Cutie Pie Challenge - One for the Boys
Scrappy Frogs - Masculine with Two Embellishments

Thanks for looking, I will catch up with you all from the train! Have a great weekend, I will be back tomorrow with a schedules post (hopefully) lol!  Thanks for looking and take care xx
