Happy Tuesday everyone! We have a new challenge for you over at the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog. Our lovely Tams chose the challenge this week and she's asking all of us to make cards inspired by a song. For some reason, I was really having a difficult time with this one...until I picked up my new Expecting Nikki stamp. And then I remembered a song by Alison Krauss titled Baby Mine. I think Alison has such a beautiful voice and I love this song. You can listen to it here.
I used my copics and prismacolor pencils to color this image and then gave Nikki some tiny pearl earrings. I added a little touch of Stardust Stickles to her purse and shoes but it's hard to see in this picture. I punched out some greenery with my Martha Stewart branch punch. I used my flower punches and added a little white pearl in the center of each of the flowers. I tied my sentiment with some embroidery floss. Wow, what a beautiful and stylish mom-to-be!
OK, now to the part I'm sure you've all been waiting for...the winners of the Challenge Blog Hop last week. The winner of my blog candy is Amanda R ... congratulations! Amanda, please check in over at the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog to find out how to claim your prize.
