Cupcake Craft Challenge #72

I coloured this image yesteday while colouring my House Mouse image. The papers were out so why not make two cards using the same embellishments.
The challenge over on the Cupcake Challenge blog is to make a baby card, so this is my entry.

The image is by Stamp It and makes me laugh. The look on that stork's face is priceless. I've kindyglitzed the drops of perspiration to emphasize the effort of the stork. lol
Papers are Melissa Frances with the buttons and lace from my stash.
Another card I'm completely happy with.

BTW my friend's grandaughter loved her pink and black 21st birthday card, so much so, that there is talk of framing it. I feel so chuffed, that's what makes it all so worthwhile, when people love your work as much as that.

Raining here again today which doesn't worry me but I think my menfolk were hoping for another day of fine weather to get the mowing done.
Hope all my blogging friends who are experiencing the very, very cold freezing weather at the moment, are keeping warm. Everyone else, keep cool especially South Australian ladies who are suffering under a heat wave.

This is a gorgeous baby card, I love the simplicity of it and that image is adorable. The buttons, the lace and the little safety pins are wonderful embellishments.
