Hi peeps - hope you are all having a great week.
I am so happy to be sharing this card with you today - I won a Guest Design Team spot at Phindy's Place when my entry for the recent Distress challenge was chosen as Card of the Month, and was later chosen as overall winner of the month, with a prize of a Guest Designer spot in March.
So, I chose to use this adorable image, "Little Squirt", from  Phindy's shop - don't you agree, he is just soooo cute!!

The theme of the challenge this week is Oh Baby!, which could be a new arrival, a 1st Birthday, etc., - if you are looking for the perfect baby/small child image, do pop over to Phindy's shop (see link above). Check out the new "Wee Babbies" range too - they're adorable!
Card recipe:
Image coloured with Copics.
Sky created with a "mask"of roughly torn paper, a piece of Cut'n Dry foam, and Versacolour Sky Blue ink.
The image is die cut with Nesties Labels #1.
Blue cardstock - Stampin Up.
Patterned papers - Nitwit Big Top collection, distressed and machine stitched.
Sentiment - my own (computer generated).
Two buttons and white Ric-Rac to finish!
I would like to enter my card into the challenge at Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes + the option of Something Old (the blue button is VERY old)!
Have a fabulous weekend - love to all ~

1st of all, CONGRATULATIONS on being GD! Yay!
I absolutely ADORE this card! I just fell in love with it at first glance. In fact this sentiment (from Sentimental Sundays partly adjusted) would work for it, " Do you believe in love at first sight or should I drive by again? " LOL
Wonderful wonderful card!
