I can’t believe we are already over halfway through May…and we still haven’t had many nice sunny days. I haven’t seen any weather forecasts yet but I have my fingers crossed for some sunshine this weekend as I need to get outside and do some tidying up and weeding. What do you have planned?
While I munch my breakfast I thought I would share with you this months challenge at the Sarah Hurley Challenge blog which is all about 'Shades of Blue'. A few of the team (me included) have a love of all things blue, so we want to see your projects showing as much blue as possible. You have about 10 days left to enter as the challenge runs until midnight on the 26th May.
I have used papers from Sarah's Craft Basics Digi Kit and the 'Baby Feet' stamp set Sarah designed for Personal Impressions to make a new baby card…
To make the patchwork background I picked 4 of my favourite patterns and reduced their size to 3” square before printing onto white linen effect card. Once stuck down onto the card base I covered the join with a glitter border. The centre square and scalloped square have been cut with Nesties. All the stamps have been stamped with Memento Paris Dusk and the giraffe, elephant, booties and baby vest have been coloured with ProMarkers, with just a touch of Stickles on the vest.
Please hop across to the challenge blog as there is some fantastic inspiration from the team, including our new guest and team members.

- The Corrosive Challenge – My Sentiments Exactly
