C4C68 Happy New Baby and Guest Designing for Meljen's Design

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!!!

WOW this past year has just flown by!!! It definitely was a fun year, even though it was overshadowed with the passing of my Stepfather. Nevertheless, I'm extremely excited about all the new and fun things that I'll be doing in *2011*. I have only a few more days till I have to go back to work...yikes!!! The girls and I have been busy going to the movies, ice skating and shopping. All the fun things girls like to do!!! I actually thought I'd have more time stampin' while I'm off, but I guess I was only wishful thinking...LOL!!!

I did get to stamp a card for today's new Crazy 4 Challenge ~ C4C68....yeah!!! Maria is hosting and her theme this week is *CELEBRATE SOMETHING*!!! I'm celebrating a very happy event. My sweet co-worker Marie gave birth to a super duper cute little baby girl named *Brooks* right before we all went onto our Christmas vacation. Brooks was only 4 pounds and 12 ounces....she is sooooo little and sooooo sweet! Thank goodness she was healthy as can be!!! Best Christmas present e-v-e-r  for my co-worker!!! I can't wait to visit them and hold that little munchkin in my arms :) !!!



For my card I'm using this sweet Stuffed Baby Elephant image from the Meljen's Design Collection. Nicole, from the Meljen Team invite me to be their Guest Designer for January. I'm really excited trying these sweet digi images and I hope you like my ideas along the way!!! If you are not familiar with the Meljen images then please check them out right HERE and the fun Challenge Blog!!!   


My inspiration for this card came again from Mona's awesome CR84FN8 color combo (You can see my 1st card HERE)!!! This time I focused more on the bright *pink* color....very fitting for sweet little baby Brooks :) !!! My digi image was colored with these Copic Markers ~ C0, C1, C2, RV09 and Colorless Blender. I embellished the card by adding some scored lines behind the main image. The DP is from the SU Rich Razzleberry Collection and the matching Ribbon is from the PTI Razzberry Fizz Collection. I finished the card with a punched out flower border (Martha Stewart) on the bottom, some piercing on top, some matching Buttons and some Silver Pearls...voila!!!

Now it's time to check out all the fabulous ladies from the Crazy Team ~ Tammy, Maria, VickiBarbara, Cindy, Frances, Jessie, Joanne, Joycelyn, Lynda, Silke K. and Angela.

Thank you for stopping by today!!! I'm wishing you all a fabulous new *2011*!!! See ya soon...hugs ~S~
