A Corney card - get it!

You find me today incredibly high on Day Nurse (other medications for colds are available!), my arms feel like lead & I can't think I shall spend the day thinking wonky!
The awesome digi on this card is from Digi Doodle which was given away as a freebie to use on a special challenge that I've just realised has finished already...DOH!!
Coloured with PM's with orange glitter-glue highlights, I've cut it out, decoupaged the acorns & mounted it with foam pads on to a background of die-cuts made from Basic Greys Indian Summer collection using my Nellie Snellen oval frame dies from Scrap Revolution. The little embellishments were a prize that I won.

Please DO NOT eat me!

Alas this is not an edible card (although wouldn't that be the ultimate card...hmm!), it's card candy. I got the idea for this card from the very talented Julie but hers was far more feminine, subtle & too darn perfect (card -envy? Me? Never!). Made the flowers with pink pearlescent paper using a Bazzill chipboard one as a template. Scrummy card candy & a rub-on sentiment.

Baby Girl

Ahoola all!! I was going take this card into the garden to have its photo taken but soon felt the hammered-in nails that I would need to keep the card from blowing down the road and rain streaks wouldn't have been a good look! This is baby Emily from Prairie Fairy with a Doodlebug Sweetheart Babys Breath paper-pieced outfit, coloured with PM's with glazed glasses. I've added white & pink card candy around the edge & coloured a glittery number peel-off .

Closing Down Sale - Donna's Den of Crafts - Final DT card

Tiz a sad day over at Donna's Den of Crafts  as Donna has decided to close both the Challenge Blog and her shop. There is a closing down sale with 30% off everything so you may want to grab yourself a to the shop is here. Our final challenge has been cancelled but it was going to be Fancy's what I made.

I used Doodlebug papers - Strawberry Blossoms & Tutti Fruitti-for the flowers with yellow button centres & the "foliage" is Felt Fusion from Queen & Co.

I've made this card for my BIL Ray as a Thank You for taking Oliver fishing last week. They were away all day & caught 9 fish between them...not big enough for tea though!

Baby Boy Card

Nearly had a major craft-stash sale today as my Mojo had not only left me but I think had left the planet!! This card, wish I'm now rather pleased with, must have taken me 6 hours to make.

The blue is Bazzill card, the patterned blue is Edwardian cardstock from Kanban, the cute stamp is from LOTV coloured with ProMarkers, I've used my new inverted scalloped nestie & added buttons, pearls & a bow embellie. Welcome to our crazy world Kenzie!!
