Creative Craft Challenges " Minimalistic " and Four Crafty Chicks " Babies "

So as you have most probably gathered by the title of this post I am taking part in two challenges and the upshot of them both will be  ” Minimalistic Babies ” sounds like a pop group !!!

Creative Craft Challenges who I recently came across via the blog of the  ever so lovely Cheryl of Cheryls Creative Art their challenge this week is to produce  a clean and simple card .

The second challenge is by the intriguingly named Four Crafty Chicks whose theme  is  ” Babies ” Now I can do a Cas card with the best of them ( well maybe that’s a little exaggeration ) but I have never made a childrens card let alone a babies ! so this is a first , so please be gentle with me now wont you !

For those of you who do not like the cute and sweet please look away now ! You have been warned !
For the braver bloggers here are a couple of cards that I made which I think fit both challenges perfectly,  although I do stand to be corrected by both of the DT members should they had differing opinions.

I should be sharing two more cards with you,  I did make the  ” Girl ” Version of the  first card and the male version of the second ( the male mouse was a little more macho I think he had a bigger tale  ! ) but for some reason blogger once again has interfeared  and wont let me upload them ! Most probably trying to protect you all from a sugar overdose ! Ah blogger works in mysterious ways !

Ah but your not getting off that lightly I have a back up ! but specifically for the Creative Craft Challenge as I don’t quite think it fits into the  ” baby theme ” for the  Four Crafty Chicks !

I think my little owl is quite minimalistic I hope the ladies at Creative Craft Challenges agree !

Why not pop over and see what both design teams have come up with to inspire you and maybe take part .  I have to say I quite liked creating these simple cards and if you don’t behave yourselves I might even show you the ones that got away at a later date.

Sorry for this higilty pigilty post ( no idea how to spell that ! ) but I am on a diet and my nerves are all over the place !

Take care

  4. Hi Marie loving your cards especially the owl I just love them. I am well thank you but had a bit of time away from crafting as my mojo completely went for walkies (oops hopw your doggies did not hear that lol). Back with a vengeance now. Hope you are well.Luv Chris xx

  5. Three fabulous cards Marie but I do love the little mouse one shame you could not upload the male version. The owl card would make a great card for my SIL, he loves owls.Kath x

  6. Honestly Marie these are not 'too' cute. The second one reminds me of Angelina Ballerina, (tho' having two sons, you've probably never heard of her), and I LOVE the owl card, it's a stunner. Have a lovely weekend. xx

  7. Higgledy piggledy. I had to look it up – and it's way past my bedtime! Absolutely love your CAS cards Marie and I don't really do cute either but I adore both your cuties! The owl, it goes without saying, is gorgeous! Vx

  8. I personally loved your 'highly pigility' post! For whatever reason your girl card made me laugh out loud. That mouse! Such personality. Many mischievous stories to tell. Your owl card does not look that simply to me! I am however in love with it. Your highly pigility posts always brighten my day, make me smile and go away feeling a little lighter. You have a knack for that — did you know? Take care and thanks for popping by. xx Donna
