Oh Baby...Baby!

Morning Peeps...hope you're ready for another challenge here at LCI!! Before I show you my card and Coen's Corner make sure you check out the Challenge Blog to see if you were one of the winning entries. They were all fantastic and we appreciate you taking the time to enter our challenges.

As usual I'm chasing my tail...more so these last few weeks. The clock is ticking to my trip home next month...4 weeks tomorrow but who's counting lol??? I'm uber excited but I have a TONNE of cards to make and wedding invitations to finish. Yes, I'm still working on the invites! I did finish one order but she needs more so just waiting for the numbers. I started fixing the Swarovski crystals to the other invitations...all 1080 2mm of them!!!! Why oh why do I do this to myself lol??? They are looking pretty fab if I do say so myself and when I've got them all done I'll share them with you.

On to the challenge and my card. Our fabulous Ladybug Susan has chosen the theme of Baby which I think we all love. The DT have used one of the 4 Baby Baby images and we would love it if you would too (you get an extra prize if you do) but it's not mandatory to win. 

I've used Splash Time Baby Baby. These images were originally brought out as stamps but have since sold out and are now available as digi's.

I'm happy with my card....for a change! I've used pp that I've had forever and white linen cs. The image is printed on PTI cs...fab when using Copics as it doesn't bleed...and cut out with my MFT stitched circle die mounted on a Nesties Scallop die cut. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border, fabulous ribbon for the bow, Doodlebug Sprinkles enamel dots and I printed the sentiment on the computer. I made a bow with Lasting Impressions floss, added Glossy Accents to the bubbles which I sprinkled with glitter. 

I punched a border from the same pp and added it to the bottom of a white piece of cs for the inside. 

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

The Corrosive Challenge - Forever Young
Card Mania - Circles
Craft-Dee BowZ - Handmade Bows
Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes
Digi Makeover Challenge - Anything Goes

Coen's Corner

You've made an excellent job of this card, Kerry! Your design is gorgeous and really suits this adorable image! It's very sweet and pretty, perfect for a baby girl!
I'm sure Coen gets more irresistible every day! That's one ginormous backpack for such a little lad, but doesn't he look cute with it.
Good luck with finishing your invites!
