A multi-challenge card!

Hello everyone, I hope you’ve had a wonderful Wednesday. Weather here has been a bit yucky again today. I had some car trouble yesterday morning – went out to go to work and had a flat tyre! Luckily hubby is working afternoons this week and he was in bed so fortunately I was able to leave my car for him to sort and take his to work. However it turned out to be a bit more serious than just a flat tyre – I hit a pot-hole on Saturday when we went to the cinema, a very large pot-hole and I had actually buckled my alloy wheel!!! How lucky was I ‘cos I used it for work yesterday. So now that I’m £190.00 worse off I have my car back – great timing ‘eh? I am actually thinking of speaking to the council and seeing if I can claim the money back (hubby went to take a photo of the pot-hole today but they have conveniently filled the hole in now). I’ll keep you posted on developments.

Anyway onto the reason you’ve visited me today :)

This card fits in with quite a few challenges this week:

Cute Card Thursday – they want cards for little boys

Quixotic Challenge – want to see a charm on your card

Simon Says Challenge – also want to see a charm

Paper Cutz Challenge – their theme is anything goes!

Allsorts Challenge – want to see buttons

La-La-Land Crafts Challenge - also want to see buttons

For my card I’ve used an adorable image from DigiStamp Boutique called ‘Thomas in pram’ (don’t miss out on the 20% off Christmas images currently running in the shop) and coloured him with promarkers. The gorgeous paper is imaginisce and the plain card is from the papermill shop. I used my MS doily lace punch for the decorative edge and the ribbon is dovecraft. The charm and buttons are from my stash. I printed the birth announcement details on the pc. I love making baby cards and I have another baby boy one to make tonight *yay*. Thanks for stopping by today. Don’t forget to come back tomorrow to see my card for the new susie’s sassy challenge.
