I'm Being Childish...ha!

Hello, and welcome!

We have hardly had daylight, at all, the past couple of days......grey, wet for some of the time, and a cold wind....not fun!
Some people have been lettin' me know that they have already had snow and I just know that they are being smug about it....ggrrrrr!

Nah......seriously, I'll be happy to wait for our very own particular brand of the lovely white stuff.....as long as it doesn't take too long in gettin' here....hahaaa.....

There's another lovely challenge over at 

This week our challenge prize for our random winner is provided by the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps!  A wonderful prize of SEVEN DIGITAL IMAGES... winner's choice!

We love Bugaboo Stamps, and we know so many crafters do, too! We appreciate their awesome sponsorship... the images are so much fun!

 And... there is a sale going on at Bugaboo until December 26th ... WOW!  Do mind that it doesn't include the Daily Deal (which is already an awesome price!) or the Gift Certificates.    What a time to stock up on your favourite images!!!

Our theme for you this week is

Your card creation should show CHILDREN... and perhaps it will even be for a child!   Remember our 'twist of faith'.... your creation should also include a scripture, or quote or an uplifiting sentiment that suits this week's theme.

"And He took the children in his arms,
placed his hands on them and blessed them."
                           Mark 10:16 NIV

Here is a scripture share for you...if it inspires you, wonderful!  Please use any scripture that offers a message fitting of our theme...

Here's my DT card for this lovely theme......

I used  AKV Birthday Party  on this bright card....couldn't resist it.......and used that startling red and white (freebie) paper as the background on my cream card base.......

I coloured up with Promarkers and added some sparkly Mod Podge on the balloon and table confettie, and also on the cake frosting.....yum!  I cut the image with a Deckled Edge Nestie.  For the blue background frame, I placed the blue card into a Spellbinder's Scalloped Rectangle die, then laid it onto an open Cuttlebug embossing folder with an embossing mat over the whole, then the usual sandwich of cutting plates.....this gives a lovely diecut shape that is also embossed!  I finished the frame by colouring the outer edge with a darker blue Promarker.............

 I made the upper sentiment on the computer and layered onto red card....the "Friends" sentiment is a rub-on that's been sitting in my drawer for yonks.......and we're done!

Take a look at what the rest of our Design Team has come up with......tons of lovely inspiration!
I hope you'll join in the fun, this week.....we all need cards for children at some time, don't we?

  5. HI Anne-Marie - you did a lovely job on your card. I am learning how to "color" and I know I have a long way to go. The artist in my family is my sister Jane who can whip up any kind of drawing - she has that talent for sure. Thank you for the warm welcome to TOF - I am so blessed to join all of you. Have a lovely week. ~ Gail ~
