Cuddly Buddly Challenge 1

For Word Play Weekend Challenge please click here.

For Whimsy Stamps Digi blog hop please click here!


Cuddly Buddly just started a new challenge blog and since I love Wee Stamps which are also being sold there, and just discovered and fell in love with their other digis too, I decided to play along for a chance at winning.

The theme for their first challenge is

A brand new...

It could be a Wedding, New Baby, New Home, New Job, New Year or even a new craft tool, etc.
I had this image from when it was first released, but haven't had a chance yet to use it. I hope it counts as my brand new, but it could also be a brand new year in someone's life since it's a birthday card.

Here is my card.

The image I used for today's card is Suzie with Bunny. Isn't it adorable!!

I colored the image last night when everyone was sound asleep but had to wait until morning to finish it, because I didn't want to make so much noise with my sewing machine.

I colored with derwent coloursoft pencils blended with baby oil, and then some copics for the skin. Papers are from Stampin Up, retired designer paper - my favorite and I am running low on it :-(
I applied some glitter to the designer paper and to the image itself. The border punch is Martha Stewart Lace border. I've had these large prima flowers forever, they are just so huge, I never really use them, but thought it worked great to use behind the sentiment.
To finish off the card I did some distressing around all edges and sponged with turquoise ink.

Here are some challenges I am combining here:
Ok, found lots of challenges to combine again, thanks to Feline Playful!
