Old Macdonald Had A Farm

It's my second week on the Polkadoodles Design Team, and it's an enjoyable experience, the girls are all lovely.
Now this weeks challenge has been chosen by Nettie. Nettie is expecting a baby in under 8 weeks time now and has chosen the theme of Nursery Rhymes, And my sons favourite one is Old Macdonald - I have used the All Around And Everywhere CD -Rom for my background, I also used it for the animals which I cut out and put on with foam pads, the fence is from the same CD and cut it out and put on with more foam pads. I used the Fairy Flutterfly stamps to stamp my flowers and added gems. The sentiments are from the Candy Doodles CD -Rom. The Nursery Rhyme title has been added using word art.
The winner will receive a special blinkie for use on their blog and something scrummy from Polka Doodles! Runners-up will also receive Blinkies!

I have made this for Bobby's friend who will be 4 in a couple of weeks, only Bobby isn't too pleased as he wants to keep for himself, to put it at the side of his bed, so it looks like another couple of hours cutting out animals and peeling of those little squares of the back of tiny foam pads. Maybe when I get some time i'll do him one in a frame.

For all you lovely blogging friends who ask how Bobby's hair is doing, I though i'd take a photo to show you how it's growing, it still has lines and steps in it so there will have to be another close cut to get them out. (for those who don't know what i'm talking about see post lower down).

Stamps - Papermania sentiments, See-D's numbers, Images - Polkadoodles, Flutterfly's flower stamp by polkadoodles,
Papers - PolkaDoodles
Tools - Cricut, nesties,
Embellishments - Gems, ribbon, foam pads, (all from stash)

Thanks for looking and have a nice weekend
Happy crafting

Fantastic card Tracy, I'm loving the detail. Glad Bobby's hair is starting to grow back. I remember my sister cutting all of doll's and my little pony's hair, but not another child. Poor lamb.x

Hello Tracey, Love the fun card!! Very very cute!!! Lots of time and detail my friend.

Bobby's hair is cute with it shaved. I know you don't want to hear that after what happened. But I think it's cute. :o)

Glad to see Bobby's hair is looking better, he looks a real cutie.

Tracy said...

Like I said in the original post your son would look cute no matter how his hair was cut.

Cute card, those animals are adorable.

Hi Tracy

This card is just awesome, I bet it looks even better in the flesh with all the dimension.

Glad to see Bobb'y hair is growing a bit, will take a while to get back to there it was though. But he looks cute all the same.
