New and Cute

Hi everyone, I hope this year has started out well for you all. I'm sorry I haven't been around much but have been pretty busy with appointments (doctor, dentist, hospital etc) as well as having a rush job of making my daughters birthday card to get in the post to her.

So as I have a couple of days free I decided to ink up one of my new stamps and join in a few challenges. This adorable baby stamp is LOTV 'balloon basket' which I coloured with Promarkers then I cut it with an oval die and layered it onto a Spellbinders 'opulent oval' die. The background card was embossed with a Die'sire Embossalicious 6x6 petite dots folder - definitely my favourite folder as it is suitable for any style or occasion and works brilliantly for white on white cards. The ribbon and card candi are from my stash and the sentiment stamp was a magazine freebie. Finally I added a little Stickles to the image and sentiment (although it is a bit hard to see in the photo).

I really enjoyed making this card so I hope my inspiration and motivation has finally made a come-back.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Allsorts challenge 'new and cute'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets' (I used snippets of card for the die and sentiment)
Papertake Weekly challenge 'it's all new'
Creative Card Crew challenge 'for a child'
As You Like It challenge 'favourite embossing folder and why'
Penny Black and More challenge 'stencils. masks and embossing folders'
Stamping Sensations challenge 'dies and punches'
The Cutie Pie challenge 'white on white and oh so cute'
Scrap & Craft challenge 'anything goes' - this is their first challenge

Thanks for popping by and for your continued support. Sorry for being such a bad blogger this year and I hope to catch up with you all very soon.
