Eline's Baby meets a few challenges

I lost Eline's babies when I moved, the papers, and stamps of Eline's were all in one box - could I find it - NO!!!  I decided to sort out my large Christmas box and there they were, so I couldn't wait to use one.
Fortunately two challenges this week had 'Baby' as their theme - Simon Says and Stamp with FunCute card Thursday  have 'Bloomin Gorgeous' as their theme (I could probably enter this one with every card I make this week, rarely a card slips by without flowers on it somewhere) and finally A Spoonful of Sugar who have a Freestyle week.



I scored a grid on the pink cs using the Scorpal and the pink patterned paper is from Eline's cellection. This delightful image is coloured in Copics, and cut with a Nellie Snelen frame. The flowers are from my stash and the leaves cut with the Sizzix leaf and branch die. I had intended to put the ribbon to one side with a sentiment but the 'pesky' cat put an end to that when he walked across my ink pallette and on to the card leaving a partial cat pawprint at the bottom of the page. Had it been on the image he might just well be a fur stole now. Fortunately by moving the bow and the cute little bootee charm  hid the damage beautifully.

Well I had two cars being picked up today and it has done nothing but snow for the last two days so I've spent half the day sweeping snow off cars - no sooner done than it needed doing again so that's my exercise for the week taken care of.

This card is stunning Heather. I adore it. The flowers in the corner are gorgeous and your colouring is out of this worlld. You made me laugh when you said the cat walked on it. We have two cats and when the children are laying on the floor reading, they flop right ontop of the book. Where would be be without them? Thank you for the award, it means so much too me. Have a wonderful weekend. xo Jackie
