Crafters Companion Challenge: Halfway reminder & A-May-Zing CD Launch! Sneak Peeks Day 3!

Hiya! I'm back again with some more cards!
Firstly for this months Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge halfway reminder. This months challenge is Four Legged Friends! You don't need to use Crafters Companion products to win but if you do you'll be entered into the draw twice to win a £30 voucher to spend on the CC Website!
Here is my card, it's made using one of the Benjamin Bunny stamps from last months release coloured with pencils. A simple layout, bit of embossing and I'm done! Not sure why I didn't add a sentiment though - never mind!

Paper Sundaes - Anything Goes
Cards for Men - Spring Colours
Paper Pretties - 3 or more layers & Wet/Dry embossing
Secret Crafter - Mens card
My next lot of cards are for the upcoming collaboration launch between Crafters Companion and Nigel May! He's designed a new craft CD called All Kinds of Everything! I've been working on a project to hopefully show off all the lovely elements on the CD and I'm going to show you a little bit of it everyday until the launch on Thursday 19th April at 9pm.

To make it a bit more exciting, any comments you may wish to leave me will enter you into a draw to win a signed photo of Nigel! I'll announce a winner from all the comments on my A-May-Zing posts left before Weds 18th at 9pm, on my last Sneak Peek post on Thursday morning, if that makes sense! There's also a chance to win the CD itself over on the CC Blog!
Here's the next 3 cards I've made. It's a set of 12 cards for all occasions that can be given as a gift. I wanted them to be fairly clean & simple to show this CD can be for beginners as well. I also needed the cards to be quite flat, you'll see why on Thursday! Every card has a matching envelope and insert, all from the CD.

Todays set of 3 is for Mums and Babies!

The idea behind this set was to have a card ready for almost all events that might pop up in a year and babies are often one of them (I have a new niece or nephew coming in 7 weeks!!!) Firstly a Baby Girl card, these little images are so sweet! I added a cloud effect border, some little ribbons and those bows are also from the CD - very lifelike!
I'd like to enter this for Stamp with Fun - Favourite Colours

You can't be prepared with a baby card unless you have a card for each flavour! So here's the boy version! I wanted to use the same layout but added stars instead of hearts - still cute!
I'm entering this into Colour Create - Yellow, Blue & White

Last but now least is a card for the lovely ladies that have these babies! I LOVE this image and the backing paper to go with it, I can definitely see myself using this alot! The paper, topper, button and sentiment banner are all from the CD.
I'm putting this in for Crazy 4 Challenges - Buttons

Thanks for looking, I'll be back same time tomorrow!
