Building Blocks

Hi everyone...can you believe it's the middle of the week already? The way time's flying, it will be Christmas before we know it.  But it's not here yet and as always, even though we have to start thinking about Christmas early in the crafting world, there's plenty to do before it arrives!!

And one thing that you could do is come and join in with the final Sketch Challenge over on the Craftwork Cards blog. It's your chance to win some fabulous goodies. This weeks sketch is as follows...

And here's my card for the challenge...

As soon, as I saw the sketch...I thought it would be a fabulous idea for making a baby's card and using those little squares as building blocks. I used chipboard letters from We Are Memory Keepers, for the ABC which I painted with Eco Green acrylic paint, before applying Glossy Accents over the top to make them shiny. The papers and die cuts are part of the Little Boy Blue collection at Craftwork Cards and are matted and layered onto Bazzill cardstock. I finally added a couple of buttons and some ribbon.


  1. What an absolutely ADORABLE little card!!! and the perfect idea for the challenge! the colours and little accents work so well...LOVE that little elephant, especially!

    So well done!!! :D <333

  2. So pretty - a perfect sketch for this baby card


  3. I love how your mind works! This sketch is definitely screaming baby blocks and I absolutely love your card. Thanks for your kind comments too Emma - I'm feeling a little bit better now but have still got a bad cough.

    Love Lynda xxx
