Spit Happens

Hi everyone! Hope you had a good weekend! Can you believe that it is only 2 weeks till Christmas?  And I'm still making Christmas cards to mail out. 

I thought I would change things up a bit and share something other than a Christmas card with you.  A good friend of mine, her daughter had a baby boy a couple of weeks ago, so needed a baby card to send off to her.  I'm using a new image - well new to me - it was released back in August by Stamping Bella.
Today's image is called Spit Happens by Mo Manning in rubber.

As the routine goes, I started by stamping the image on bella's bestest paper and then coloured using Copics and did the shading with pencils. Designer paper is by My Minds Eye - Alphabet Soup.  What I also like about the Mo images is that most come with a sentiment.  Now not always do I use them, but this time around I did. The sentiment was a bit big for where I wanted it to go, so just cut the words to make it fit better. Finished the card with some stitching.

This friday is our last bellariffic challenge for this year, so hope you will play along.  It is a sketch challenge.  Email Emily your card by thursday night.
Thanks for visiting today, have a good one!
