Beans


Morning Peeps, time for another Cupcake. And this week, Liza has chosen a fab challenge that made my tummy sink with fear! Lots of Layers. I struggle with putting colours and papers that match together, so lots of layers had me running for the choklit! ;) We are joined this week, by our lovely regular sponsor; Crafty Emma's Store and this month our Icing on the Cupcake sponsor is Bunny Zoe's Crafts.

Last week, Donna sent me a lovely parcel of stash (thanks Sweetie). Donna's packages always come in a box filled with polystyrene packaging beans. Sweet Cheeks loves these beans and will play happily with them for days. Last week, Sweet Cheeks was so 'into' his beans, that one day when we were going out, he insisted on packing them in his little Lightening McQueen bag so he could take them out shopping with us! Sadly, they are no more, as they turned to moosh after being left in his 'bubbles drinkie'. AKA Tap water! He likes the fizzy water I drink, but is not allowed it very often. Luckily, he's not sussed that the water that comes out of the tap is not actually bubbly!

Well, you've seen my creation, pop over and see what the rest of The Cupcakes have made...

Recipe
Cardstock: Stampin Up!
Papers: Wild Rose Studio and Funky Hand
Image and Sentiment: Chick-a-Link, Rainbow Studios

Wow! You've been chruning out some right corkers lately!! I think it's time for me to come out from behind the shed and re-connecting with my stash. Have a groovy week!! xx

Debbie said...

Morning Fluffy. I am with SC on this one, I used to take "beans" to Playgroup all the time and the kids would love to stick them together and make "Aliens" we loved it. THEN about four years ago the powers that be, that protect children (and stop them PLAYING!!), said "beans" are DANGEROUS if swollowed....Isn't anything that a two year old swollows dangerous!!
So gone they are!!!
We will find something else to have fun with until they ban that too....
Love your chick card, and I can see at least 7 layers, good job. Debbiexx

Morning cyber-sis
This is such an adorable card, Love those papers, and your colouring is always spot-on, think I need lessons.
I dunno why layers worried you, you got this perfick!
Packing beans, like bubble wrap and cardboard boxes, are part of kiddies play as they grow up. They can have more fun with those than some of the 'real' toys because it lets their imagination soar :)
Go sweet cheeks!!

Have a lovely week, and a fab Easter,
Jo xx

You have done a wonderful job with all those layers, Faye. Green is not a colour I use that much on my cards, but I must say I love the different shades and patters on yours. And that lace is gorgeous!! x

Chris said...

A wonderful combination of the layers I say, perfect colours and patterns, gorgeous colouring on those cute chicks and all springlike....makes me want to go out and lie on the grass :). LOL re the packing beans and fizzy water, it cracked me up. I have a child that insisted on carrying round bag fulls of conkers for a very long time many years ago :), sweet memories. Hugs, Chris xxx
