CES Challenges Baby Bonanza & Tag it for SFTW

Good morning!! I have 2 baby cards to share today.. one for a {late} Stampin' for the Weekend and the other for CES Challenges. 

I'll start with CES Challenges and our theme is BABY BONANZA.

I am also entering this card in to the Waltzing Mouse Sketches challenge. 

My papers are Pink Paislee 'Cupid' and they've been inked with Antique Linen distress ink. I used both lace and pale pink sheer ribbon - I love how lush they are together!! I made the tag myself and stamped a Studio G sentiment on it. The image stamp is one from a huge box of wooden stamps I bought on QVC aaaaaages ago!

The prize for this challenge is a set of gorgeous fabric brads and ribbons by My Mind's Eye.

Next up is Stampin' for the Weekend and our challenge this week is TAG IT. Quite simply, use a tag on your creation. 

We are being sponsored by Meljen's Designs and my cute image is called Cuddle Cloud Baby. I've coloured it using copic sketch markers. My papers are MeLody Ross 'Homespun Chic' and they've been distressed with Victorian Velvet. To embellish I've added some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, some pearl spray and a butterfly that's been punched out using the X- cut 3D punch.

I'm also going to enter this into a few challenges:
Cute Card Thursday's challenge - A tweet and a flutter.
Secret Crafter - Anything Goes
Stamp Something - Use A Digi

Well that's it from me for today. I have promised my kiddos I'd bring them to the play centre this morning and hopefully it will tire them out so that I can have crafty play time this afternoon.

Thanks for visiting :)
