For Fun - Clips & Pins

Where are the weeks going, they seem to be flying past.  I hope we will actually get some summer at some point lol The sun is shinning today on my day off though so that's a good start :)  The challenge at For Fun this weeks is "Clips & Pins" (but safety pins not fancy ones).  I need some baby cards so this was the perfect opportunity.  This cute image is from Di & coloured with ProMarkers & I paper pieced his romper suit & blanket, if you check out Di's fab images on her site she is giving away a gorgeous freebie at the moment (you can also get her images on Squigglefly)  I used vellum for the background & finished off with flowers, ribbon & bow, punched tag, brad, gem, Glamour Dust & of course the safety pin.

I'm entering this card for these challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges - Paper Flowers
Create4Fun - Baby
Fussy & Fancy- Monochromatic & Wings
One Stop - One for the Boys
Polka Doodles - Father's Day or Male
Craftalicious - Monotone
Rosie-D's- Blue (option of fish which as you can see I didn't use)
Creative Inspirations - Monochrome
Magical Crafts - Male/Fathers Day

Have a great day & I hope the sun is shining where you are.  I'm going to do the usual: housework & crafting  (hopefully more of the latter lol).  Hubby's having a knee op this afternoon so will miss the England game but he doesn't mind too much cos while he's recuperating he will get to see lots of the World Cup & Wimbledon :)
