New Baby + Challenges

Hi Friends, Only a few days left till Santa brings us all the nice crafty things we've been dreaming of. (I wish) oh well a girl can dream. I bought this stamp at the big craft show at the SECC in Glasgow along with a few other WOJ's they are delicious. I used my promarkers fro the faces & hair but I've paper pieced the dress and baby shawl. I just love how it's turned out. It's such a beautiful stamp for a new baby card.

This is the challenges the card is entering:
1. Whiff of Joy Challenge: My very first time entering this challenge and what a beautiful Challenge blog it is. The work from the DT is awe inspiring. I followed the gorgeous sketch this week. The challenge will run until 5th Jan.
2. Paper Play Challenge: The theme this week is New Beginnings and will run until the 6th of Jan. The prize is a mystery box which I'm sure will be filled with Yummy Goodies.
3. Quixotic Challenge: The theme this week is Lace, and is open until the 5th of Jan, but there are lots of giveaways and surprises on the 23rd Dec and the 30th, so remember to pop over and have a peek.
4. Cupcake Craft Challenge: The theme this week is Celebration, another 2 week challenge. A new challenge will be set on the 4th Jan.
5. Creative Card Crew Challenge: This weeks theme is Anything goes and will run for two weeks until Jan 5th. The girls are also looking for some new DT members, if this is something that appeals to you then do pop over and have a go.
6. Charisma Cardz Challenge: This weeks challenge is asking for anything but Christmas. It will run for two weeks.

Thank you all so much for visiting and for the lovely comments you leave for me to read, you all really brighten up my days.

Merry Christmas to you all.
