Baby, Baby

OK, grab your favorite drink and get comfy because I've got a long post.

Today is Totally Ladybug Tuesday and we've got a  Blog Hop going on!  Kerry has a new release of stamps and we are having a blog hop to celebrate.  You can check out the new set of stamps over at Ladybug Crafts Ink.  They are baby stamps and they are so adorably cute!   



I used the bathtub baby for my card today.  The image is colored with copics and prismacolor pencils.  I added some pearls to the bathtub for the bubbles.  I used Fluffy Stuff on all the water and dusted it with Glamour Dust before I heat embossed it.  There's a tiny little bow tied with embroidery floss that I placed on her little curl.  My sentiment is also part of the new release and I punched it out with a Martha Stewart punch and tied it into my flowers with some embroidery floss.  I added pearls to the center of my flowers and the corners of the card.  I finished my card by adding ribbon, a bow and a charm.



There are two ways to win a prize this week.  You can win prizes by participating in our Blog Hop:

     -  Visit each DT member and leave a comment on each of their blogs so we know you've visited

     -  Leave a comment over on the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog telling us which one of the new images is your favorite

     -  Display our Blog Hop banner on your blog, either in a post or on your sidebar

The Blog Hop prize is a set of the new Baby Baby stamps, along with some goodies from Hayley at Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn.  Our blog hop will close at 9 am GMT on Monday, January 17 and the winner will be announced at 9 am GMT on Tuesday, January 18. 

The second way to win a prize of the Baby Baby stamps is by entering the BABY themed challenge this week over at Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog.  I hope you find the time to play in our challenge this week.
