Kids or Babies at The Squirrel and The Fox

Brace yourself Blogger friends for this is a busy blogging weekend for me, as all three of my challenge blogs have challenges go live within days of each other. I'm not sure this little blog has ever had so much action!

Our challenge theme at The Squirrel and The Fox this fortnight is an easy one:


Now I don't have any children of my own (just one of the furry variety), but even I seem to make cards for kids quite often. So far they've all been birthday cards or cards to welcome new babies to the world, so I thought I'd make something a little different - a bright and cheery kiddie Get Well Card.

Our challenge is sponsored by Bugaboo, and I used their cute little Deacon Rain digi for this card. I had bought the cute rainy DP a while ago and was very happy to have a chance to use it. The sentiment is a CC Design rubber stamp. Deacon was coloured with copics and the ribbon is from my stash.

I used some 3D crystal lacquer for the rain and puddle, but sadly it just doesn't show in the photo.

I hope you'll join us for our Kids or Babies challenge - make sure you pop over to the challenge blog and check out the inspiring work from the DT. Lisabee has had to step down from the blog due to other exciting commitments, so I also want to take this opportunity to thank her for all her hard work over the past 21 challenges.

Thanks for looking and for your kind comments as always!

Hi Tracey, this is a gorgeous card I'm sure any little child would love to receive if they're feeling unwell.

Love your 'beautiful boy' too.

I can so relate to this cute image and the fab background paper you've used! As I sit here I can hear the rain dripping off the porch and going 'plink!' on the recycling bin by the front door!

I'm sure that any child who's 'under the weather' would immediately feel better when receiving your fab card!

love Mags B x

Awww... I love that sweet sentiment under the poor little guy! While he is colored wonderfully, he doesn't look too happy! Your paper is absolutely perfect for this too!

I have to say that your furry kid is quite handsome! Love that sweet face!
