Baby Boy Card

What's all this with the baby cards. Well I saw, a wee while ago, a card with bootees on Christine's Blog and as I was trying to convince myself I could colour in if I tried, I though this image from Cuddly Buddly Digi Stamp - Booties - would be a good place to start.  I purchased Promarkers from Amazon and today I sat down and coloured in my bootees.  Made two cards, one for a boy and another for a girl.  Felt a bit childish colouring in, brought back childhood memories of trying hard not to go out the line and don't press too hard.  I now submit my first colouring in project.  I have been amazed by the way the stamps from LOTV have been coloured and you can choose the colours you want rather than use the pre coloured images, so onward and upward, the only way is up. Watch this space, may take a while before I try another project, depends on the comments and hint you lovely ladies decide to impart.  I always sit on tender hooks waiting to see the comments on my cards and so far they have all be favourable, very favourable.

8 x 8 Card
Papers from Forever Friends New Arrival and Gift Wrapped Paper Pads
Bootees  digi image downloaded from Cuddly Buddly coloured with Promarkers
Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles Die
Ribbon from local Reject Store
Gems and sentiment from stash.
The lemon ribbon on the bootees looks very vibrant but in real life it is more subdued.

Weather is horrid that is why I have been sitting crafting today, other than taking the dogs for a walk I am not venturing out in that snow.  I still have to decide what to have for dinner, I usually have it all prepared ready to cook but today I am not inspired to cook anything.  I made a big pot of Chicken Noodle Soup yesterday so that's one course catered for, what we are having for the main is open to debate.

I received my give away from Kath at today and boy will I have fun playing with the punches, stamps and papers included in the parcel. Thanks Kath and Buddy I really appreciate being a winner!!!.

I will leave the Baby Girl card to post tomorrow but I intend to make something else tonight, don't know what yet but there will be more cards to post.

Your comments are greatly appreciated, and I look forward to reading them.  I have been a bit lazy lately but will get round all your gorgeous blogs as soon as I can. You ladies are all so talented.

As usual wrap up warm and take care.
