Child Birthday Card Challenge at PCC

Here it is another Sunday night already and I've missed blogging again this week. I do think I got caught up with visiting last night, but in the event I missed stopping by, please leave me a comment on this post and I'll be over very soon to see what's new with you.

The challenge at There's Magic In the Air/Paper Cupcakes this week is brought to us by Marie. She wants you to make a child's birthday card, free range in creativity, do anything you want as long as it is for a child.  My mojo has flown the coup so mine is pretty straight forward and simple. Think I'm having crafters block similiar to what writers experience.......LOL

Card info:
  • Image is "Orson with Cake" by Nina at Paper Cupcakes
  • Sentiment by Nana Vic
  • DP is from "Oliver" by Basic Grey and SU Old Olive
  • Colored with Copics
  • Stickles on the icing and ribbon is from stash
I do love hearing from you so if you have the time to leave me a comment I will be sure and come visit to see what's new with you.  Thanks so much for stopping!  Now head on over to PCC to see the wonderful creations by my DT sisters and be sure to submit your card by next Sunday to be eligible to win the weekly prize.
"Hugs" Carol

Hey Granny Carol, your card is absolutely gorgeous, I love the sparkly icing and the image is super cute.
I hope you find your mojo although looking at this cutie it looks fine to me. I know what you mean though it's so frustrating when the mojo abandons you, mine usually goes awol when I have a stack of DT cards to do which is very inconsiderate lol
hugs Mandy xx

If this card is made by you with your mojo gone then I can only hope to have a fraction of it. I'm liking that cheeky little monkey with his pretty blinged up cake.
Gorgeous card hun!!! *Hugs*
