Good Morning All,

It is time for a new challenge at As You Like It and for this fortnight the theme is "Something for Baby" so we would like to see your favourite projects for babies (and don't forget to say why please).

The only thing I make for babies is cards and I do try to make them a different shape from my normal square cards as it is such a special occasion for the parents and I should think most save them as keepsakes.

For my DT card I have tried the Dutch Doobadoo bottle shaped stencil.  I must admit I didn't find it easy as I don't like fussy cutting. The straight bits were ok, it was the curves etc that I struggled with.

I used a cute image from Digistamp Boutique and coloured with copics.  This was also a problem in that my pens didn't seem to like being used in the hot weather.  Two of them let out an ink blob on the image, but I just about managed to save the second one and a couple of pens seemed to be sticky too!

The papers are from a Carta Bella pad called Baby Mine and embellishments added are Memory Box baby ducks, a die cut flower shaped button, a chipboard word from Make It Crafty and a little string of pearls.  I've also used glitter glue on the bubbles.

The sponsor for the challenge is Crafty Ribbons, so a lovely prize for the lucky winner.

I hope you like my make and I would like to enter these challenges:
