I'm hanging around!

Hello again!

More singing I'm afraid, this time the Kylie variety. Oh. No, she spins around...

Anyhoo, if you're looking for my Cupcake post, it's downstairs.

Over at Pollycraft Monday, Jane has challenged us to make Anything but a Card. Oh, how my tummy dropped! I'm rubbish at this type of thing. But, after much head scratching and trying to decide what to do, I thought I'd have a go at a door hanger.

I finished this project a few days ago and as is often the way with me, the door hanger in my hand, didn't look as good as the door hanger in my head! Everytime I looked at it, I just felt a little disappointed.

Yesterday afternoon, Sweet Cheeks and I were making sand castles in the garden when I had a light bulb moment. And I wasn't even at the Jelly Beans! I left The Cheeks to it while I rushed indoors to add a few bits and take a photo before the light went for the day. Sorted. :)

So, if you like to win stash from Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn, you'd best play along! Don't forget to head over to Pollycraft as the girls have made A.Mazing projects to help inspire you.

I would like to enter this project at:

The Stranglers did "Hanging Around" - I remember it from my late teens/early uni years, when God was a boy. A popular little ditty of the time it was too. But I digress - I'm really here to say how much I'm likin' the door hanger - fabby colours on those papers and I love your clouds. xx

Hia Faye: Omgosh you are hilarious! I love your blog and what I just read above about beep...you are a panic! Your blog though is completely adorable!!!!! Faye, your card/doorhanger/creatively artistic piece is awesome. Do you know whose work it reminds me of? Ali Edwards - a real hands free, confident, put it there, put it there, put it there and VOILA - Masterpiece the world will love! This card is UBER great! I am wondering what the downer looked like. Now sweet cheeks = were you playing with a person or a cupcake...I was trying to figure that one out. Gosh, we would leave our whole brood in a park when an idea flies eh? lol Well I think it is fantastic and I wish you the best success in the challenges and of course in ours at Lexis Creations. Love to you for 2012! Samara - DT. ("you have now exceeded the time alotted for your message")

Unknown said...

Hi Faye, I seem to be having problems with blogger letting me know that blogs I follow are being updated - so I'm late to see your latest wonderful creations.

Love the wedding card underneath this one and the little monster underneath that (wow I've missed loads - naughty Mr Blogger) the door hanger is fab. I must admit I saw the theme over at Pollycraft this week and wondered if I would enter. My excuse, if I don't enter, will be that I ran out of time!

Hope the toe is improving.
