A Little Cutie with a big ooops!

Hello there, hope all is well with you. So this is a big ooops for me as I'd meant to blog this card yesterday to coincide with the start of our new Cutie Pie challenge, but for all sorts of reasons I completely forgot to do it!!!! Actually, yesterday was a busy day, I took my Mum to Maidstone after work to do a bit of shopping, as she and my Dad had decided to treat me to a new Die Cutting machine for my Christmas pressie. I have had my much loved "original sizzix" for about 7 years now, and it is still going strong, so I'm sticking with Sizzix and have chosen the new style teal coloured Big Shot.......although it is at my parents house now, and I am practising my best "surprised at Christmas" face!
Anyway, back to the card and as I already said it is time for a new challenge with the Cutie Pies and this time our theme is
 Little Cuties 
So its all about cards for babies and very small folks!
We are kindly sponsored this time by
Who gave us some wonderful images to play with, and I chose "Uh-oh" for my DT card.
I have coloured this with the trusty promarkers, and highlighted with a white sakura gelly pen. The Gingham paper is a freebie download from Bev Rochester's wonderful blog and the dotty paper is from Bo Bunny. The circular sentiment is from The Cutting Cafe'. I have added buttons, twine and candi from stash.

We very much hope to see you joining in with this challenge, you can find us here
