CES DT Card - Challenge 4 "Baby Bonanza" + Challenges

Week 4 over at the CES Challenge Blog, where does the time go? This week we have another great challenge Baby Bonanza. This is a digi image from Digi Doodle, Isn't she just the sweetest. I've coloured her with Copic Markers. The papers are Prima Annalee which are available at the CES Store along with the TH Ticket & Pins. Emma's also added new stock including Websters & Basic Grey and has an offer on Promarkers for a short time. You can go direct to her shop HERE. The stamps on this card are Tim Holtz & Paperartsy. Everything else from my stash and as you can see, lots of stickles.

This weeks prize is a set of MME Fabric Brads & Ribbons, both available in store.

Heres my usual list of challenges;
Secret Crafter - Anything Goes
Stamp Something - Use A Digi
Karber Weekly Challenge - Card for a Girl
Alphabet Challenge - Unused Stash (image is very & stamps had years and unused)
Penny's Challenge - Anything Baby
Southern Girls Challenge - Anything Goes
Lexi's Creations - Flower Power

Not sure what I'm up to this weekend but no doubt will be hopping at some stage. I'm playing again with my new Aquamarkers. Slowly getting to grips with them so will hopefully get something made up over the weekend.

Finally, this is a photo of me, hubby and our children at the wedding we went to the other week. HATE having my photo taken but not often I get one of all of us together (even though Zoe was shielding from the sun).

Have fun whatever your doing!

Hallokidoki Claire,

Wouw I love your card. It makes me think of my mother when I was youngh (loooooong time ago). She was so proud showing photo's of me when I was a naked baby. Grrrrr. Haha so I wonder what this baby thinks if he know that you show this picture, even on the internet..lol.

But any way it is a great card, naked or not hihihi.

Warm greetings from a cold and rainy Holland.
