Soooo excited, this week I am a guest designer for the Die Cuttin’ Divas Weekly Challenge Blog, and this week’s challenge is to create anything Tropical or Summer themed, and what’s more summer-themed than a giant sandcastle. I got inspiration from a couple of different sources to make this card. First I saw a tutorial for a sandcastle card from Karen Burniston where she used her Castle Pop-up and her Ice Cream Sundae Pop-up to make an interactive Pop up castle, the only problem was I don’t have the Ice Cream Sundae Pop-up, so I was trying to work it out in my head how I would make a fun but different Sand Castle card. Then I was binge-watching Jennifer McGuire videos and I came across her video on how to make a Bridge Card and I thought WOW the Castle dies would be perfect for this, so away I went.

So this week Crazy4Challenges challenge is a different one, apparently its national Fried Chicken 🍗 day in the U.S (who new) so this weeks challenge is to create a card with a bird on it. Well, I have a chicken 🐓 and all his barnyard friends. This card was also made as a request, I had a family friend who asked if I could make a birthday card for her grandson, I believe her words were “Can you make a birthday card for my almost-three-year-old grandson, maybe a farm theme” What my crazy craft brain heard was “I need a farm card with every farm animal you have, make sure ist big, bright, multicoloured, with balloons, streamers and party hats……. oh and don’t forget the cupcakes.” My son actually told me I was insane 🤪hahaha
I made a Party Animal Card a while back that is a little smaller.

I have been asked to make several cards in the past, but this is a first, I was asked to make a baby card with a shark theme. Hmmmmm I’ve never really thought of a shark theme for a baby card. I was sent a couple of photos of babies room and sure enough it had a shark/ocean theme (there was also a picture of a whale 🐳) sooooooo this is what I came up with, and I have to say it turned out pretty cute.

Love this little mouse, and in this card, the little stinker is running away with a Christmas light. I thought that it would be fun to make an interactive card and have Jolly the mouse actually be able to scurry across the card.
So this card was so much fun to make but turned into quite the challenge when I decided to make 50 of them, there were a few challenges along the way but I did get them all done and in the mail 🙂

Here are a few more pages from a baby book I had made for family friends. It is the fall and Halloween pages. I call it a growth chart book. I also give a Teddy bear with the book and for a year, every month and holiday the parents take a photo of baby with the bear and then they have a record of how much baby grew in their first year. Other pages can be found here https://mymessycraftroom.me/2018/08/31/monkey-fun/

So this little cutie actually dances in the waves, as you can see from the photo he moves from side to side (he has a pendulum type mechanism). This style of card is a little thick for mailing but he is sure to put a smile on someone’s face. To see a card with a similar mechanism check out “Snappy Birthday” from August 11/18.
this card is currently for sale.
