I did warn you

I was at my friend Susie's the other night and I kind of stamped one or two images or three or four......and Arthur was one of them. I own one baby stamp and when you've got a few to make in the same week you don't really want to use the same stamp, perhaps that's just me!!

I can't believe how well this card turned out, after colouring Arthur blue I really thought I had made a boob. Although I loved the papers Mel sent me I wasn't entirely convinced they would work for a baby boy card.I thought that if I keep going on with what I had in mind for this card it might all come together in the end and I think it did. I would so love to hear what you think and any recommendations for baby boy/girls DP's.

I was also determined not to be running late with the Sugar bowl challenge and to my word it's well ahead of the deadline.

Finally I got round to using my clear gloss, bought it way back last year stuck it in a drawer and it's been there ever since. It doesn't really show up in my photo but in RL it looks pretty good if I do say so myself.
