New Beginnings

Good morning, y'all!  How has your week been going?  I wish I had a little more vacation time...I just was not ready to come back to work on Tuesday.  Plus, having Mondays off really throws off my time all week.  I feel like I'm a day behind.  For instance, I felt like today was Wednesday instead of Thursday....which means I'm late on letting you know about the new Digi Doodle Shop challenge!!  I sincerely apologize!

This week, our challenge is New Beginnings.  There are all kinds of new jobs, new houses, weddings, births, retirements...the possibilities are endless!

Now, for the past couple of years in my family it seems that someone is always pregnant, so I decided to do a new baby card.  I'm sure that someone in the family will get pregnant again soon. (Hopefully it's my turn!  LOL)

I used the adorable Sleeping Infant, found in the People category under Children/Babies. I just love the face; isn't she adorable?!?  I colored her with colored pencils and Gamsol. The papers are from Prima Marketing's Nursery Tales collection.  The roses are from my stash; it's hard to see in the picture, but in real life they match the color of the roses on the baby's hat and shirt.  The sentiment I found on Splitcoast Stampers.

Now you've seen my card, hop on over to the Digi Doodle Shop's Best challenge blog to check out the amazing creations by the rest of the team.

Remember, you don't have to use a Digi Doodle Shop stamp, but if you do it will be entered twice.  Also, you can enter as many times as you long as it's with a new card/project each time.   Don't have any Digi Doodle Shop images?  Check out the 99 cent category!  These images will be going away forever March 1st, so get them while you can!  Or just grab some images at the store and start racking up those award points!
