Pink Elephant Sketch Challenge

I saw this sketch challenge and thought I could achieve a really clean and fresh look with it. Joanna Sheen is sponsoring this challenge over at Pink Elephant too.

Image Pink Petticoat, paper Doodlebug, brads, rub ons, Copics

I chose my patterned paper first and matched everything else with it. The brads are papermania I think! The image is from Pink Petticoats Big Fella collection. I liked the finished result so much that I made another one in blue as it's my husbands birthday soon and I always get stuck when it comes to making cards for him.

The boys have gone for their nap again and I have to confess I'm going for one today too. We didn't get much sleep last night at all and we had one of Zacs playmates around this morning so I don't have the energy for anything now!

I've had lots of questions about Blake - he's doing great thanks. A fab feeder, now weighing in at 9lbs 15oz! His big brother is really gentle with him and constantly wants to kiss him and stroke his hair. Here's a little pic of him admiring his Daddy:



  1. This is the second time I've tried to leave a comment on this posting... the last one disappeared into the ether.
    Blake is just yummy... I'd love a cuddle.
    I'm afraid that the cards have to take second place to this little honey!
