Stampin' for the Weekend - "New Beginnings"

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a fab time, we had a party with family & friends (as we do every year) it's a lovely way to see the new year in, though I was very tired this year as I had to work 9 -6.30 on new years eve :(

I'm a bit late posting this card because my monitor has died. Luckily my eldest son Craig is a computer wizz kid & has shown me how to access all my documents, pics etc from my PC using my other son Stuart's computer (luckily he is at work & said I could).

Anyway on to the card: this is my first DT card as a member of the Stampin' for the Weekend DT (how exciting). The challenge this time is "New Beginnings" & I've made a baby boy card. I used my new EK Success border punch, the stamp is from Woodware & I paper pieced the pram, added a touch of sparkle with a Sakura glitter gel pen & a gem. The other bits are from my stash.

I'm also entering my card for these challenges:
Cupcake - Time for a Celebrations
Daring Cardmakers - New Beginnings
Charisma Cardz - Celebrations
Crazy4Challenges - Polka Dot Fun
By the Cute and Girly - New
PaperPlay - New Beginnings
Stamp Something - New
Secret Crafter - New Beginnings
Rainbow Lady - New
