New Baby Card with this week's Copics Colour Challange colours


We have some fabulous colours this week for you to follow at Copics Colour challenge and we have a brilliant prize on offer from our sponsors - Simon Says Stamp this week of a $25 store voucher - what a fab prize at the start of the year!


I thought that these colours really were perfect for a baby card - I have a friend whose baby is due next week and I have a feeling that it will be a girl - she think's it is a boy, so I guess we will just have to wait a bit longer to see who is right.


The stamp is by Sugar Nellie and the papers are by Flair Designs from a pack that I bought ages ago. Ribbon and charms from my stash. The sketch that I have used is the fab one over at the Sugar Bowl at the moment - unfortunately I can't enter it there as I had forgotten when I used it for my DT card that you cannot combine challenges at the Sugar Bowl - never mind it is a brilliant sketch anyhow - thanks Lilian.

I am having a day at home today as the trains are not running properly here. I went to get an early train home at 2.30 yesterday only to get as far as Forres which is only 10 miles from where I live - the points were frozen there and by the time that Network Rail came out to see to them an hour and a half later the weather had got worse and the track was closed. I eventually got home just after 6pm - It is usually a 40 minute train journey!!. I got to the station this morning to find that the trains were already running around 45 minutes late and no guarantee that they would be running at all from Inverness in the afternoon - so I am now at home trying to pick up my work emails and do as much as I can.

I will also enter this card into the challenge over at Cupcake craft challenges where the challenge is to make a baby card.

Keep warm and I hope you are managing to get around if you really need to.
