The image is colour in on the computer, and cut and matted on scalloped circles run through my 'bug'. The image is back on swiss dots, and I have added some spotty ribbon and a button to finish it off. This is my entry to the Allsorts Challenge this week, to use buttons.

Thanks very much Niki, I love it and know just who to give it to for a friend's birthday.

I've made an easel card using Papermainia Naughty and Nice Christmas Paper, a bear this is from a glitter shape sheet from home bargains last year, which I have backed onto some white card I have run through the cuttlebug with swiss dots. I have used a brad with a snowflake on to hold the card up.
I couldn't think of a Christmas song or carol which had a bear in it, but have found one on the net called 'Thistlehair the Christmas Bear', so I hope this is acceptable to this weeks challenge.
This is my favourite of the easel cards I have made today, and my 6 year old son has just said it is the best card I've every made! Not sure that is true, but it was sweet of him to say so.

I'm so pleased with how it has come out. Originally, I wanted to do a nappy cake but wasn't sure which brand she would be using, so decided to do one that had some bath bits for the baby and a sleepsuit, vest, bib and hat for him, and some bits for my friend. I think the whole thing has cost me about £15.00, and for that the cake has:
Baby bath robe
Bottle of baby shampoo
Bottle of baby bath
Packet of wet wipes
Set of baby nail and scissors
Lavender bath products for my friend - bubblebath/bath salts/soap/flannel/body puff
Small box of chocolates
I'll put cellophane on it before giving it to her some time this week.
I must say thanks to Sally over on MSE for the great tutorial link she sent me. I really enjoyed making this, and would like to do some more when I know someone else to give one to.
