Pretty Punches for Digital Tuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Hope you all had a good start of the week. I am still somewhat sick, not feeling achy anymore, just a very runny nose and a cough. It would be nice if these cold meds would actually do what they are supposed to, tried 2 different types of antihistamines and neither one of them work. I know plain old Benadryl would, but that makes me so sleepy and I really don't have time for that and refuse to take it. Should have just saved the money for more stamping stuff. LOL.

Today's challenge over at digital tuesday was chosen by the lovely Michelle, and she wants to see all those pretty punches.

For my card I used a new digi from Meljen's Designs, which is available at Whimsy Stamps. The stork is my favorite "new baby" image.

And of course I just love Meljen's style, and this one is just adorable!! The sentiment was one of Meljen's freebies a couple of week's ago. It is still available at her blog, you just have to scroll down a bit.

I colored the image with derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil. Papers are all from stampin up. Several punches were used, all of the Stampin Up (scallop circle, 1 1/2 inch circle, scallop border and photo corner). I embellished with some brads and buttons and a bow.

I'd love to enter my card to the following challenges:
Our sponsor this week at digital tuesday is Digital Delights, giving away 3 digis to one lucky winner. I hope you'll get to play along with us!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Have a great day!
