Peek A Boo - New Baby Girl


Wow! It's been a month since I last posted. I needed the break though. I have been spending time with family and friends. My son is home for one more week then he heads back to the East coast for school. Things should be settling down then and I can get into the groove and back into crafting. Meanwhile I found some time today to put together this card for some challenges. I had trouble though getting a good photo to show the true color. I usually take my photos in natural sunlight but we were lacking that today. So I am afraid the pinks are not showing the correct shade of pink and the hair on the poor little girl isn't looking as blond as it does in real life.....sorry guys! I enjoyed making the card though. The image is called Peek A Boo Girl and is by Karen's Doodles. I colores the digital image with Prismacolor color pencils. The cardstock is by Bazzill. The inside sentiment reads : Congratulations on your new baby girl!".

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog : Circles
Karen's Doodles Challenge Blog: Monochromatic
Cupcake Craft Challenges : Something new ( mine is new baby)
Crafty Creations Challenge Blog : New Beginnings ( new baby)
Cute Card Thursday : Monochromatic
Stamp Something : Anything Goes
Card Patterns : Sketch - which you can see below





I will be catching up soon with visiting all my favorite blogs. I am anxious to see what all of you have been creating while I was taking a break. Thanks for stopping by and I wish each and everyone of you a safe, healthy and happy new year. May it also be a crafty one!
