TLT - Tam's Challenge - Oh Baby!

Welcome to another TLT...yup it's that time again! Did you know there's only 7 days left of October? Scary!!
A big thank you to those of you who entered MP's Circle/Pink/Chocolate challenge last all did a flabulous job! The winners are on the Challenge Blog so make sure you check to see if it's you!

I also want to say a BIG Woo Hoo...our challenge blog has hit 301 followers!!! Thank you EVERYONE that has taken the time to come along and joined in our challenges. With so many Challenge Blogs out there, your taking part with LCI is greatly appreciated :-D
This week is Tams turn to choose the challenge which is Oh Baby! I LOVE making baby cards...especially using the Baby Baby stamps. I received a commission for a baby boy card way back in September...that's how long my card has been waiting to be posted. But wouldn't you know it...I was typing this at 11pm last night lol. Anywho this is what I did....

I hope you're not getting bored with my WOW cards (I've another couple waiting in the wings!) ... I can't seem to get passed them for baby or wedding cards...something pure and innocent about them. I also love making the quilted background with my lends a coziness to the card IMHO.

I inked up this little guy and coloured him in with my copics adding the dots with my gel pen.

I guess Marvelous Mushroom isn't the first colour you'd think of for a flower but I grab it first time everytime these days.

The inside Mary J'd

I was told that the mom of Harry loved the card so I'm very happy ... job

I'm sure Harry's mum loved it - makes me want another baby!!!

I love this card Kerry and I don't think I ever get tired of WOW, I agree it is so useful for a card you want to keep beautiful and not gaudy. Did you do the hand writing? Love the font or if you wrote it you are WAAAAY better than me! But I already knew that!

Mary J said...

Wow, just beautiful Kerry! Your colouring is amazing as usual and the inside the BEST! Your cards in more so real life are so professional!
