New Phindy Babbie Born~ Messy Babbie


Hi Guys!
Well! Another "wee babbie" has arrived in Phindyville! Meet "Messy Babbie".
This baby was really a lot of fun to work with, I borrowed some DCWV paper from my daughter's "Kitchen Stack" and sewed around the image one or two images to make an applique.
I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. Kind of a nice touch.


The bowl reminded me of the old stoneware ones that have started to be reproduced in nicer colors.
Here's a close up of the babbie herself in all her messy glory!


And the inside! (See, I am completing the insides of my cards now and for once I am showing you! Proof! I kind of have to show you since the sentiment is on the inside. :-)


And by the way, if you'd like the sentiment, just click, right click and save to your computer. Nothing fancy.

So I hope you get a chance to hop over to Phindy's shop and see what else she has going on, there's always something you're bound to love!
I would like to play with:
CES: Children
Wee memories: fave color scheme (pastels)
Res Q Challenge: use your corner rounder
Off the wall: color scheme:
 Cupcake Craft Challenge:Comedy Rocks (see sentiment)

You would share your batter with me right? RIGHT?!!! This card is adorable! I love the appliques. A perfect touch! Like the coloring. I love her little tufts of hair too! The colors are great as well. Nice to be able to have another stash to raid. It does not seem to matter how much paper I have, there is still some projects where I have no paper that fits. Kind of like my full closet. I have nothing to wear! Anyway, this is a fantastic card and should make it to your fav. page! If not It will make it to mine!

Hi Dorcas

What a totally gorgeous card I love have you've created that applique detail - might have to "borrow" that one - although I've only just got a sewing machine and that looks tricky getting round all those edges neatly - you must be a pro!(any tips greatly appreciated!) Anyway thanks so much for joining us again over at Kaboodle Doodle and good luck.
