PTW #31

Happy Monday,
It is very chilly here but bright and sunny so after posting this I am going to try to take my dogs for a quick walk as I believe the weather is due to become wet tomorrow.  My little girls don't like the wet, they stand there like a lizard lifting one leg off the ground at a time to try to keep dry!  It does make me laugh as they look so sorry for themselves!

I am entering this card into 2 challenges today; the first being 
PaperTake Weekly Challenge #31.  It is a great sketch by the sketch queen herself, Dawny P!  I love her sketches they are so clean and unfussy but thats just my personal opinion!

The second challenge I'd like to enter this into is 
Cupcake Challenge # 72; they are simply asking for a baby card.  How lovely and straight forward is that and it makes a nice change from the 'new' that's flavour of the week at the moment everywhere else!
It was my first inking up of this cute little Stampavie stamp.  I saw it online and just fell in love with it as I thought it would cover a few areas in one.  I do like multi-purpose buys as then I dont feel quite so guilty!

I used:
image - Stampavie - Garden Bears
coloured by - PM's
base CS - The Papermill
glitter cs - Gemstones

pp - Pink Petticoat and Funky Fairy
sentiment - bought as 3 A4 sheets in the Range (sorry, I bin the packaging but will check)

Oh well, it's still sunny so I really must go and get my little girls out - I've tried putting it off for as long as I can!  Just to say, its not that I dont like walking them it's just that my back is very bad at the moment so walking the dogs and using a walking stick and having icy ground is no fun!

Thank you for  looking and I hope you are all keeping lovely and warm!

This is a right cute card Keryn, love your new stamp and how you have coloured the image. Had a lovely walk this morning in the snowy ground again, the lake was completely frozen but looked gorgeous. Not slippy at all would you believe it. Might not be so lucky tomorrow. Take care out there, hope your back improves soon.
