Its week two of our month long challenge over at Ladybug Crafts Ink where  we are showcasing the new Baby Billie images.    You all know how I love my bears so I am just loving Billie :)

Hop over to the main challenge blog for all the details of the challenge.  You can however win the image I have used so be sure to leave me a comment if you want to be in with a chance.

Each Ladybug Team member is picking two people who comment on their cards each week to win the image that they have used on their card.
Last week the two people that won Baby Billie's Bottle are
Margaret from Dutchess and Pauline from Crafting with Cotnob.  Please email me so I can arrange your image to be sent over.  

If you fancy winning Baby Billie's Duck then be sure to leave me a comment and two more people will be picked next week :)

Instead of the usual blue or pink theme for a baby card I have chosen yellow and white which I think is so fresh looking.   So here she is the cute Baby Billie's Duck.....
