TLT - Oh Baby - New Release

Thank you to everyone who entered our Red & White Challenge....your makes were fabulicous! Please check the Challenge Blog to see if you're one of the winners and if you are the overall challenge winner or the winner using an LCI image email me with your snail mail and I'll get your prize off to you asap!

I am sooooo excited about this release. Baby Billie was created to celebrate the imminent arrival of my grandkidlet. We have less than a week to due date but are hoping he/she arrives sooner as Nicole is ready to burst lol.

To celebrate, the challenge will last the month of May so there's plenty of time for you to make your baby cards. The DT and 2 GD's Jane and Lyndsey have been busy creating their makes and we hope they will inspire you with new ideas.

You can win one or more of the images by visiting the DT and GD's and leaving a comment on their posts. Each week you will find a new card/project on their blogs and they will be randomly choosing 2 commentors (is this even a word???) to win the image she has used the day before the next posting so make sure you check to see if it's you!!

Ok...if you're not excited then I sure am so if you're ready I'd like you to meet Baby Billie's Blanket....

Isn't she the cutest thing ever!!! I've kept this card super simple. I tried adding various embellishments but they just didn't look right. The itop brad turned out to be perfect.

I cut the white cs then scored the rectangle boxes before I used a text box in Word to type sentiment, inserted Billie's Blanket and moved it until I was happy with the positioning. I then colored Baby Billie with my Copics, paper pieced the blanket, colored the heart then added glitter for a bit of sparkle. 

This card is for my friend's new grand-daughter Chiara who arrived safely on Sunday.

I've re-discovered my it! It's easy to make a brad to match your project :-D

A sneaky peek at the inside. 

My fabby new signature stamp gifted to me by Ladybug Laurie for my birfday :-D

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Catered Crop - Embossing
Sentimental Sundays - Paper Piecing
Love to Scrap - Anything Goes
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Pause, Dream Enjoy - Outdoor Critters
There She Goes - Paper Piecing

I hope you love Baby Billie as much as I do. The Ladybugs love to read your comments so please let us know your could win one or more of the images if you do!!

Hopefully I'll have some amazing news to share with you soon....the birth of my grandkidlet :-D

Have a great Tuesday!

Catch ya later x
