Sooooooooo Cute!


Hi Blogging Friends...

Today it's the turn of In The Pink - we have a new challenge starting and the theme is 


Now - when I DON'T want my cards to be cute.... (when I think they're possibly a bit arty.... ok - I know it's not often!)  I get lots of lovely comments saying 'how cute' etc...  Sooooo you'd think it'd have been easy for me to find what I thought was a 'cute' image or stamp in my mahoosive stash.... NOT SO!  

But I did look though my collection (ok - more of a library!) of LOTV stamps and came up with this one that I knew fit the 'cute' bill completely!  And I decided to go less CAS and more shabby chic...  I kinda managed it I think as I ended up quite pleased with how it turned out...

Image - LOTV Baby Girl
Papers - Maja Design
Dies - Spellbinders Square, Spellbinders Captivating Squares, 
Tim Holtz Alphabet
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E000/00/11/70, R20
Pinks - Rv91/93/95
Socks and Pram Wheels C0/1
Teddies E30, W1/2
Shading W0/1/3/5
Uni Posca Pen for White Dots
Stickles Icicles (round the distressed edge and on pram hood - difficult to see)


If you'd like to enter our SO CUTE challenge - pop over to In The Pink HERE.  You could win a fab $10 from Paper Nest Dolls if your entry is chosen as a Perfect Pinkie and then randomly picked!  Hope to see you there...

We're off out today to meet up with a lovely friend who I've known since our children were young...  I can't wait to have a good natter and a catch up - though I think I'll have to take some throat sweets with me to keep the voice-box well lubricated.... this cold has left me a bit husky!

Big hugs....
