CD Challenge at THE CRAFTY PAD & A New Baby Card!

** Please scroll down for today's CARD! **

Hello peeps! I've got a couple of things to share with you today, so grab a coffee and pull up a chair!

Firstly, I want to tell you about the great mid-week competition over at THE CRAFTY PAD. We want you to alter a CD......... and if you join in, you will be in with a chance to win some fabulous prizes! Here's a sneak peek to whet your appetite!

Debbie Moore, Crafty Pad Designs, is offering the entire set of her brand new Fairies images and sentiments!

Jasmine's Cards are offering a CD full of fabulous floral images to use in your crafting!

And Letraset are giving away a set of Promarkers!

So, with all these goodies up for grabs you've got to give it a go, yes!? You have 2 weeks to get your entry in, there are a couple of wonderful examples created by 2 of our DT members over at CRAFTY PAD CHALLENGE BLOG.

And now for the New Baby card!

A friend and her husband are celbrating the safe arrival of their first son, Kai, who was born on Monday. She is a cardmaker, and so I wanted to make sure it was something special.....I hope she likes it!

I added details of their wee one's name and birth details to the stopper.

I used Baby Roger, a digi image by Helen Laurence, coloured him with Promarkers and cut him out with a labels nesty. The BPs are from a digi set I downloaded ages ago, before I started keeping track of their names/origins, but I've used it so many times! I matted and layered using various papers from the collection, inked and chalked the edges and finished off with some funky fibres, brads and ric-rac from my stash.

Apologies for the very wonky photos, it is actually a regular square (not that you'd tell from the pics!!!!)

I am going to enter my card into these challenges:
My Grafico - Anything Goes.
Creative Card Crew - For a Child.
Penny's Paper Crafty #50 - Recipe: 1 image (Roger) 2 embellies (brads and ric-rac fibres) 3 DPs (all from the same collection.)
Digital Tuesday #104 - For The Kids.
Make it Monday #30 - Anything Goes.
Paper Playtime #42 - Digi Monday/Anything Goes.
OSAAT #55 - Mother's Day OR Babies (I chose Babies!)
A Gem of a Challenge #17 - Anything but a Square.
Wee Memories #49 - Anything Goes. 

If you're still here, you deserve a biscuit to dunk into that cuppa you made earlier, or even better a fresh cuppa and a biscuit!!!! Thanks for stopping by!
