photo inspiration...... C.R.A.F.T. challenge

Good morning.... Here is my DT card for C.R.A.F.T., this week we are having a photo inspiration challenge, and our sponsors are sew many digital stamps, they gave us a few images to play with

This one is called Baby on the moon ,and it's on special at the moment, it's so cute !!!, coloured with promarkers. I have also attached a little bell and a heart to the chain tangling on a little pink safety pin. Used the cuttlebug to emboss the white card with the Swiss dots folder, and added this delightful heart shaped doily which was given to me.

My daughters are attending a christening Easter weekend and i thought this image was just perfect for a little card, for this occasion.

Thanks for popping by for a peek, I have also found some lovely challenges going on at the moment which this card will fit nicely into and they are

Creative cottage..white/blank space

Creative card crew......For a child

I love promarkers.....Embossing

One stitch at a time......mothers day or baby
