Another Baby!

Afternoon all - how are we today?  It's been a grey and overcast Saturday in Suffolk so I have made the most of the chance to have a play without feeling too guilty about it (the housework is still nagging but what the heck).  Lots of "new" themed challenges around at the moment, so I have played with a new stamp and created a new card...and guess what, it's a for another new baby!  2013 better deliver lots of babies, otherwise I'll have a good stash of cards ready for when they do start arriving, lol.

First of all the list of challenges

And the ingredients for the card are:
Stamped Image - Lili Of The Valley Playtime Puppy
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Victorian Velvet, Spun Sugar, Weathered Wood, Worn Lipstick, Milled Lavender, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Mustard Seed, Dusty Concord, Scattered Straw, Tea Dye, Brushed Corduroy, Walnut Stain, Tattered Rose, Black Soot, Festive Berries - yes, there really are that many colours in this!
Sentiment - from Papermania Anniversary Collection
Dienamics - Crochet Border die
Cheery Lynn Butterfly die
Papers from scraps box, pearls from stash

Thank you so much for popping over to visit - I love to have friends round.
If I've not been to see you lately, please be patient, I am slowly catching up with you all.

Hugs, Sxx

Love this - Your use of distressed ink has made me eager to try them !
May I ask what type of printer you use ? ( when you use one ) I seem to have some smudges from mine .. or maybe its my choice of ink pads ?
Thanks in advance

OMG Miss Squirrel - how blooming pretty is this? Love the pretty punched borders and the butterflies are genius. Love this layout - how do you make CAS look so simple? Love this image (I haven't seen it before) and you've coloured it to perfection. It's all round super duper scrumptious. My favourite Squirrel card - it even beats the gentleman's vegetable patch. Way to go girl! Mwah - nutty fairy xxxxxx

Hmmmm... it's not fair!... I see the new releases at LOTV, pick a few that I 'need' and force myself to leave the rest... and then you come along and show me that I 'need' more of them! Grr ;o)

Adorable card hun, your colouring is just fabulous! Hugs, Lisa x
