Leaving To Have a Baby

Hello

Just a quickie to show the card I made for Eleri's teacher who is leaving to have a baby.



I love this image - she's called A Gentle Touch from D'Arcy's Diaries. I've coloured her with promarkers, and I'm even fairly pleased with her hair! The image was very easy to colour because of the shading of the image.

I've forgotten the name of the paper pack, bought from The Range - I think they are so pretty and I love the colours, perfect for the new Spring limited edition Promarkers which I treated myself to recently LOL!

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Simon Says - Anything goes
Paper Pretties - Bling
Craft Room Challenge - Bling and glitter/sparkle
One Stitch At a Time - Anything goes
Card Crafters Circle - Tic Tac Toe - I chose flowers, use a digi, and die cuts

As lots of other blogggers have been saying, we are having such gorgeous weather in the UK at the moment - warmer than we have in the summer sometimes! But it worries me - you watch, we'll be having snow in April and May! Although that wouldn't be a first - Richard's birthday is in April, and there was snow the day he was born in 1966 - we also got married in April and the day I was going to collect my wedding dress I woke to snow on the ground!

Enough waffle - I hope to be back again soon.

Love, Andrea xx
