Paper Playtime Challenge #73 "Anything Goes" Blog Hop

Good Monday morning, my friends.  Welcome to the Paper Playtime "Anything Goes" Blog hop.  This challenge is obviously.....Anything Goes.  If you have come from Lisa's blog then you are in the correct spot.  If you just happened to come by to visit me today, please go to Paper Playtime to start at the beginning of our hop and for the rules of the challenge for this week. 

I am sharing a very special card with you today.  It is a card that I was going to share a few weeks ago along with some exciting news for our family but could not because all of the relevant parties had not been told.  Well....they know now and I can share.  The big news.....I am going to be a grandma for the first time in September.  I must admit, I am pretty excited and have started to try to find a few baby things.  Only reason I have toned down on my making and buying things is that my son and daughter-in-law do not want to know what they are having and since everything is either pink or blue it is hard to find cute things that are gender neutral.  I made the following card for my daughter-in-law:

A close up of the image:


Card stock ~ Recollections
Patterned Paper ~ Echo Park "Winter Park" 6 x 6
Image ~ Digi from Saturated Canary "Pickles and Ice Cream"
coloured with Copic markers
Sentiment ~ My Pink Stamper
Cuttlebug ~ Swiss Dots and Seeing Spots embossing folders
Punch ~ EK Success (border)
~ Creative Memories (oval)
Spellbinders Nestabilities ~ Lacey Ovals
Colorbox Chalk ~ Lipstick Red
Glossy Accents (eyes, lips, cherry)
Buttons and twine from "Use it Up" inventory

When I saw this cute image I just knew I had to have her to colour up for my daugther-in-law.   The inside sentiment says "Happy Mom's Day" and I am going to give it to her for Mother's Day.  It was supposed to be sooner but this will work too.

Thanks for coming by today.  Your next stop on our blog hop is Sherri's blog.  The short list of hoppers is at the bottom of this post along with the link to add your "Anything Goes" project for this week.  

Have a wonderful day!!

  24. Cute card with wonderful coloring. When I was pregnant with my daughter who is now finishing up last wk of her sophomore yr in college I was not allowed ice cream, salt & couple other things since I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Took all the fun out of being pregnant not being able to have ice cream. Could have yogurt and now do not like yogurt anymore.
