Pixie Crafty Playground Challenge #323

I think I'm probably due for the naughty step because I managed to completely miss making anything for the previous Playground Challenge but I'm fairly on time with a card for the current one.  It is well worth a trip over there to see the so cute card which Di has made for our inspiration and of course the items used will be winging their way to a lucky winner in the usual draw at the end of the two weeks.  The only thing I didn't have for this card was any suitable background paper so I started by trawling through some of my very many craft CDs looking for something which would be good for baby cards and eventually I managed to find something in blue and also another pattern in pink so these were printed off.  Of course I now have some pink and blue snippets for another time!!  Everything else on the card is from the snippets boxes - watercolour paper to stamp the image; scraps of card for the banner, border and layering; gingham ribbon oddment; more small scraps to die cut the words.  The stamp used was from a set which came free with a magazine quite a long time ago and I must own up to the fact that I don't think the packet had ever been opened until I made this card - image coloured with water based brush pens.

Yet again I have to apologise for being a bad blogger of late but I will try to get back into the swing shortly - have to really because I can't keep on apologising can I??

Stamp - magazine freebie from way back, coloured using water based pens
Die - a Spellbinder one which I've had for years
Words - Crafter's Companion dies
Banner - Sue Wilson dies
Papers - printed from craft CDs


  1. Beautiful card, Val, such a sweet image and the background papers are perfect. xx

  2. Hi Val

    We can sit together on the naughty step then because I haven't been able to play for a while either!

    A real fun card from you. That little bunny is a real cutie .. .. and he was a freebie!!! Bonus!

    I hope you are well and had a good Easter break.

    Love Jules xx

  3. Hi Val,

  5. What an adorable card Val - and such a sweet little image too. Perfection, as always from you. No need to hop onto the naughty step - you're one of the most regular players and sometimes life just gets in the way. But it's always a delight to see and also read about your makes. Not to mention a lovely 'plug' for the Playground!
