Phindy's Place~ Oh Baby!

Hi Guys!
Well it seems to be the week for baby themes, cos you guessed it, the challenge for this week at Phindy's Place is: BABY!
Soooo, this means that if you still haven't posted a baby card after I whetted your appetite yesterday well, you'll have one more challenge you can enter your project in. :-)


I hosted a  few baby showers over the years and one game we played involved these little felt diapers.
I made  tons of them and the game was this:
Everyone pulls a diaper out of the basket and the ones who got a "dirty diaper" (i.e. a chocolate covered raisin or two inside their diaper) won a prize.
Well the reason I'm telling you this is that I was looking in the attic for my little sweet clothespins you see here on this card when I came across a bag of party supplies and a small ziploc bag of these felt diapers. They were a tad too big for my card, but on inspecting the design once again, lo and behold........
a dirty diaper!!
Yessirree, someone left a "fudgie" in their diaper and this chocolate covered raisin in question was particularly dehydrated now after about three years of  "Sahara" heat up in the attic.
I removed the raisin  (of course! I'm a tidy person, never mind what they all say) and was surprised to see that after all this time,  it still left a skid mark.
I kid you not!


OK then! Are you all set to get crafting?
I hope to see you around!
