It's A Baby!! at LCI

Good Morning blogland, I hope all is well in your little corner of the world. Not long now before I head off in search of sunnier climes. I'm so busy trying to get all my DT work done before I go, I don't want to let any of my challenges down - even though I won't be around to comment.

Its Totally Ladybug Tuesday time again and that means a fab new challenge at
and this week we have a super theme set by the lovely Tams
I've been itching to ink up this gorgeous Nikki stamp
I had a pram like this for my eldest son, it was great, so much better for the babies as they have lots of room, I had twins next and I remember putting them both in the pram while I was waiting for my twin pram to arrive, seems like 5 minutes ago not 23 years!!
Anyway, back from my trip down memory lane and back to my card - I followed a fab sketch by our very own Mary J for Quixotic Inspirations and the papers I used were free in a magazine ages ago I'm sorry I can't remember what they are called.
You don't have to use an LCI image to join in but we love it when you do, and with images this gorgeous how could you not want to!
Head over to the main TLT blog for lots of gorgeous inspiration from the super talented DT and for all the details of this weeks challenge and last weeks winners.
And I just want to remind you there's just a few days left to get the October Stamp of the Month at Half Price this week - Nikki Running With Buttercup

Thanks for stopping by
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie x

Sue B said...

Oh I love this Laurie! It really captures those sunny days and taking baby to the park! Happy Memories eh! Beautiful colouring and love those papers and gorgeous borders. Really love it! I had a Silver Cross Pram like that for my daughter when she was a baby. It was awesome. Fabulous suspension, no effort getting up kerbs. Loads of room beneath for shopping! They don't make prams like that anymore! My daughter loved it so much that when she was teething she would only sleep in that pram, so used to keep it in lounge. Think she felt secure in it !!!
Have a great day!
Hugs Sue xx

Pami said...

My mum has a photo of me in one of these prams, it was a dark blue one! I think these are so much nicer than the fancy things you see these days!! Anyway! Your card is gorgeous, I love the colours, so pretty and elegant. Pami x
