Cupcake Crafts #71 – A Time for Celebration

This is the last challenge of the year over at Cupcake Crafts and sadly it is my last challenge as a DT member too.  I am struggling to fulfill my DT obligations at the moment so rather than stress my self out and risk letting the challenge runners down, I thought it best to step aside and let some other talented ladies take the spot. I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Donna and the rest of the amazing Design Team and am truly saddened to have to give it up.  Life gets in the way though so it has to be. 

For this last challenge “A time to celebrate” I have used a Stamping Bella image (stamped whilst rummaging through Steph’s collection when I was down there a few weeks ago!!).  I have never made a “pregnancy” card before but I thought this image was just so gorgeous.  The papers are from a Cosmo Cricket mini deck and the image is coloured with ProMarkers.

Right, another busy day ahead of me so off I go to make my boxes for the Christmas table.  If I get them done I’ll share them later – things do have a habit of getting in the way these days though!!
