Baby with Bunny

This week it's an anything goes theme on Cute Card Thursday! Our sponsor is Simon Says stamps for this challenge - please stop by the CCT blog to read all about it and see the gorgeous DT creations. And unfortunately I am apologising that I don't have a card for the Lili's Little Fairies challenge this week, but do stop by and take a look at the DTs creations, and come join in - the prize is 2 of the brand new soon to be released stamps from Lili of the Valley - ooo I wish I could enter!

So for my anything goes card on CCT I've made another cute baby card, but in a brighter colour scheme. I've stamped the new LOTV baby with bunny in brown Momento and coloured with my Copics: the usual skin tones, then R20, R21 & R22 for the pinks, E50, E1 & E53 for the creams, and YG91 & YG93 for the ground. I added W00 for a little shadow, although it barely shows up.

The pretty paper is another freebie piece from Nitwits (I must see if I can find out the set it comes from - do you know?) matted with cream and rose red textured card. I found a length of ribbon that matches better in real life than in the photo, and punched a lacy border. The little balloon text is an old Elusive Images stamp coloured to match and the embellishments are Marianne dies LRO142 for the flowers and LRO117 for the leaves, with little pearl finishing touches created with my cream Waco pearl maker pen.

The Creative Inspirations blog also have an anything goes theme for this week, so I can join in with them; then over on the Dutch Dare Card Challenges blog it's a cute and cuddly theme - perfect!

Our building work is coming along nicely, we passed the first inspection for the footings and the concrete truck arrives at 8.30 tomorrow morning. Then by Monday the concrete will have gone off so the sand and blocks will get delivered ready to start building Tuesday morning. We didn't escape completely without hiccups - the main water line into the bungalow got broken so we couldn't flush the loo for a couple of hours, but it was easy to fix. Unfortunately Mum was taken poorly again and had to go to hospital in an ambulance - thankfully it wasn't her heart. She has a wee infection and possibly an ear infection that made her sick and dizzy. She is back home now and I am in nurse mode again - although with only a couple of hours sleep last night I'm not sure how long I can keep it up. Anyhow my friends, it does mean that I will be AWOL again for a while until things are back on an even keel here - thank you for stopping by, and double thanks for leaving me a comment. I will try and catch up with everyone who leaves me comments over the next few days when I get a moment to myself.


  1. First & foremost you take care & get some rest. Blogland will wait for you (hmmm - maybe I should be writing this to myself too!). Anyhow I do love those colours for this little one. I think that EI stamp predates my discovery of stamping. Love thew ay the polka dots work with the little romper suit & the dotty ribbon. Hope your Mum improves very quickly with the proper medication.
