It's a Celebration at the Without Words Challenge

Good Morning my lovely crafty friends.
I hope you are well and had a good weekend. Sending hugs to those in need of them.

So here we are at the beginning of September! That means the start of a new 
This month the challenge celebrates it's second Anniversary so our theme is 
It's a Celebration
Any occasion that brings joy or demands a party to mark the event!
For this challenge we are sponsored by


So, I decided to make a card to celebrate a very joyful occasion - the birth of a new baby.
I have used an adorable Sugar Nellie stamp called Cute and Cuddly. Unfortunately, I think this may be retired now because I cannot find it at Funky Kits but there are loads of other gorgeous images to choose from there. I love the cute new digistamps.


Items Used:
Stamp - Sugar Nellie -  Cute and Cuddly coloured with Promarkers.
Paper - Very old! Think it may be DCWV?
Sentiment - Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler
Die-Namics Blueprints 14
Gingham Button from stash


With my card, I am entering the DT call over at The Sugar Bowl challenge.

As you may know, I love Sugar Nellie stamps . I bought one of my first stamps from Funky Kits many years ago and Karen, the owner, continues to add more adorable images to her collection.
 I enjoyed taking part in the monthly challenges and I had the huge honour of being a Guest Designer for them earlier this year so I was sad when it closed down. Now, happily, it's coming back and they are looking for a couple of new team members. My lack of confidence nearly stopped me from applying but if I don't try I will never know!

I would also like to enter my card into to following fabulous challenges:

Aud Sentiments Challenge -  Any Sentiment Other than Birthday
Di's Digis Designs  - All about Animals

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop and look at my blog today. Your support and encouragement means to much to me.
bye for now
hugs
