Sketch Saturday #352

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by
Simon Says Stamp

We have a new grandson to celebrate and his parents have named him Quinn.   I had great fun playing with some First Edition Up&Away papers with best matey Julie's dies when she came to my house to play.   I especially love the teething ring which looked like the perfect "Q".    

Quinn was born with lots of hair and is the spitting image of his big brother (who is 2).  I used this delightful LOTV baby image which you can find here and added more facial details and hair and I was amazed at how well it turned out.  My colouring medium is Copics.
Now we would like you to scooch some space on your craft table and come and play along with us.  Don't forget to share some love with my lovely teamies too.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Celebrate
Aud Sentments - Two word sentiment (welcome Quinn); and
Stamping Sensations - One for the guys
I was hoping to enter a Lily of the Valley challenge but I couldn't find one.

And here is baby Quinn at  16 days old with his Nana!
