Bella Baby & a Surprise RAK

I have a card to share with you today - it is one I made just for fun and also as I don't have many baby cards and figured as soon as I don't have one - someone is going to have a baby!! LOL!  You know how it goes!  This one is made with a RAK I received and have had aside to colour and just never seemed to get to it - so here it is!

I went with the pink and blue colour theme, although is does look more girly than for a boy.  The image is coloured with chalks.

The sentiment is stamped from my friend Melinda's (melinda80) SU Set.  The rest of the card is very straight forward - very simple but every now and then it is nice to make something that  you don't have to think much about - the colouring is like therapy - saves my DH big $$'s!!

I also wanted to share with you this beautiful surprise I got today in the post - it 'blew me away' - you see, I got a fabulous tin of Prismacolor Pencils - the things I only dream of!!  I am so touched by the generous gift, on many levels and say a HUGE and HEARTFELT THANK YOU to my very generous friend and sister!!  I am itching to use them but will be doing some research first - feel free to throw any advice my way - I will need it!!  I have read to use Gamsol - or is it Baby Oil - please help the newbie to this...LOL!
