New baby boy

Afternoon all
hope your weekend has been a fab one. I am just exhausted today, been trecking all round Chatham and the outlet today trying to find holiday clothes for my son-only got 3 weeks to go and was getting a bit panicky as he has absolutely no summer clothes to take!! Both me and my visa took a bit of a battering I can tell you lol!!
After the decorating last weekend I was determined to have a lazier time this week so got out all my craft stuff yesterday and just played for the whole afternoon and it was lovely!!
This is the card I made for the teacher at work to send as a baby congrats for another teacher-am just hoping it will be OK.
I found a lovely image of a pram on the internet, coloured it with my promarkers and cut it out with an x cut die. I layered it with some gingham paper and and some papermania spotty paper from a blue capsule pad, added a Nellie Snellen corner die cut and finished off with some glossy accents on the rattle, a bow, liquid pearls, glitter and a sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Bearly Mine challenge 75 - Anything Goes
Fab N Funky challenge 160 - Pastel Colours
Ladybug Crafts challenge - Colour Blue
Pennys Paper Crafty challenge 116 - Favourite Colour
Party Time Tuesdays challenge 109 - Anything Goes

Hope you have a fab week, thanks so much for stopping by and until next time.
