Beloved Baby card

good evening! i'm just a card-making fool today... can't stop myself - i think i'm addicted to challenges. help me help me! (grin)

i keep telling myself i'll go make dinner in just 10 more minutes - but i've been saying that for the past hour and a 1/2. now that i finished up this next card for yesterday's Cardvaarks challenge, i can post it and go eat! a simple prawn alfredo awaits me in the kitchen - well at least the ingredients do!

posts new challenges the 5th and 20th of each month. i almost forgot to go and check this time around! only 1 day late to check it out, that's not too bad. they give you plenty of time to enter, but i'm such a keener i like to get my name in there early. perhaps i should subscribe and get the emails when the new postings happen!

the challenge is to make a window card, and i was in a baby mood today (plus my baby embellishments are all over my craft desk from the last card challenge i posted) so i made another baby girl card. it's good to have some in the stash. you never know when you'll need one!

Great Canadian Stamp Co. - Just Plain Cards 4x5
Basic Grey - Gypsy 6x6 paper pad
