Guest Designer at Getting Cricky and giveaway

Good morning my fellow followers and friends

I am so excited to be Kandrew's FIRST guest designer.  I won a challenge over there and won an awesome stamp set and a chance to be a guest designer for her.  Krystal is sooooo talented and I don't come anywhere close to what she does, but she inspires and challenges me too.  If you have never seen any of her tutorials or videos, you are SO missing out.  Anyway, here we goooooooo.


Really bad picture.  So sorry.
She is hosting another challenge and she is using the Sugar and Spice Lite Cartridge.  Well, I do not own that one, but since it's all about babies and such I used my New Arrival cart.  I bought this cart when my daughter found out she was pregnant and have used it alot.  I love all the images it has to offer.  I've made invitations, layouts and cards with this cart.  The imagination is it's only limit.  I used my gypsy to lay this out.  Sometimes I feel the need to alter things up a bit.  I love the baby on this cart, but I thought I can could probably change it up.  The baby is sitting kinda, but I wanted my baby to be standing kinda.  
This is what the baby looks like cut from cart
LOL  Sitting, standing, who cares?  I do.  Once I had the baby cut, I wanted her to have clothes on.  I cut my baby at 2 x 3.12 and then I cut a dress form from the cart at 2.38 x 2.06.  I used the hide contour button to hide the other elements, like the hanger, panties, and flower.

Cut off arms and legs and glued to dress form
Then I cut off her arms and legs and glued them to the back side of the dress form to make her look like she was standing. 

Dressed

I added a purple bow to her hair and a ribbon to her dress with a gem.  I then cut the baby bottle at 1.07 x 1.82 in vellum and in white.  I handcut the white and made it look like milk in a bottle. 

Bottle cut in vellum with white background (milk)
LOL  Pretty cute huh?  The card base was from my stash (again, following my personal challenge of using my stash) from a swap I was in.  I love the embossing and wish I knew what folder it was from.  When I went to glue it to the card I accidently ran the tape gun on the embossed side.  Ugh.  Dumb, dumb, dumb.  It was the only piece I had to I added glitter to the taped part and it looks just fine.  The congrats stamp came from Michaels $ bin and the added gems for some bling.  Every card needs bling.  I hope you liked my card and please join in at Kandrewdesigns for her challenge.  She has lots of fun giveaways and is such a generous person.  Oh, speaking of giveaways...You do not need to be a follower, but I would love it if you were. Please leave a comment and I will pick a winner on Sunday, March 13th. Post my giveaway on your blog and leave me a comment with your blog addy and I will give you another chance. Post in the comments section at Kandrew and it will get a 3rd chance.  I am giving away
