Is It A Bird? Is It A Plane?...

Hi everyone

I hope you're all keeping well?
My arm and shoulder are a lot better than they were a few days ago and I've been to the doctor about it and am getting it seen to.  Hopefully it won't be too long til I get an appointment with the specialist!

After such a lovely week weather-wise, yesterday was such a let-down!  But I made the good of the rain and had a pyjama day!  Bliss!

We have a new challenge at Eclectic Ellapu this week from the Pink Team!  It's another one for absolutely everyone - and we mean everyone, cos every craft is accepted!  The challenge is...

Anything Goes!

See, for everyone!

Here's what I did:

I made this to send off with the baby card I showed you last week, this is for Charlotte's big brother Joseph and I knew I wanted to use this image, I've had it for years and I don't think I've ever used it!  Its called Super Baby by Alota Stamps.  I coloured him with the following copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20.  Clothes; B39,37,34,YG95,93,91,R39,29,24. Hair; E49,47,44,43.
I fussy-cut him out and attached him to the card on a thin strip of acetate, so he sits out as if he's flying!

The papers are Blast Off by Bo Bunny.  I used a Spellbinder Star Circles die for the comet (I suppose you could call it a comet!) and also cut a star out of that paper to go behind the boy.  The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment was computer generated and stuck on with foam pads.

The inside matches the front.

And there you have it!  Go take a look at the fantastic inspiration from the rest of the DT, including all our new Pinkies, at Eclectic Ellapu.  I do hope you'll join us!

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge Blog; True Blue
Charisma Cardz Challenge: No Digi's allowed
Craft Your Passion Challenge; Child's Play
QKR Stampede; Children's card
Ruby's Rainbow; Squares (my card is square)

Hi Sheena gorgeous card I know he will love it and what a lovely thought I do think sometime the older kids get left out when a new baby comes and everyone is sending baby cards and gifts to the parents and new arrival so this is a wonderful idea
and a super sweet card it is too
(glad your arm has improved a bit)
