Nestabilities Shaped Card

Where does the time go? It's already Wednesday! You know the drill then, my friends! Yup, it's time for our La La Weekly Wednesday Challenge! 1Luvnmama is our hostess this week. Oh, did you guys know, 1Luvnmama is now a full time DT at La La Land Crafts! Congrats to you again, Mama! You go girl!

Mama is challenging everyont to use nestabilities, NESTABILITIES SHAPED CARD. In other words, your card needs to be the shape of the nesties you use. Awesome challenge, Mama!

I used my scallop square for the base of my card. If you look closely, you will notice I used four different nesties on my card. I was going to use a fifth one for my flower but I didn't want to over-do it. hehe Instead, I used one of my crocheted flowers. Oh, did I tell you guys, I have been crocheting mini flowers while watching TV. Hard to believe with my busy schedule but yes, it's true, I watch TV and no, not when I craft. When I craft, I only have my PC on, no TV, no music because I usually craft at night and I don't want to wake up my family. I usually watch an hour of TV with my kiddies after dinner each night. I will show a pic of all the flowers I made (and making) soon. :D


I used Sitting Pretty Rosie and paired her with this awesome freebie sentiment from Ann Vento on this card. Ann has a challenge blog "Sentiment Sunday" and she offers freebies quite often. This week's theme is to make a GET WELL card so her freebies from last week was perfect. Ann makes beautiful creations as well. Check out her blog! You won't be disappointed!


This week's featured stamp is LALA with BUNNY and she is 20% of the regular price! You can get her along with our other adorable stamps at our online store! Don't forget, one participant will get a $10 credit to a La La Land Crafts purchase!




Sorry for the long post. I guess I am feeling a little talkative at the moment. hehe If you have been following me, you know I don't talk much. Anyway, for more inspiration, please check our our BLOG. Happy Wednesday, everyone! Have a great day!

What an adorable card! I too craft at night and also early in the morning when I have to be kind of quiet so as not to wake the household. Thanks so much for playing our Sentimental Sundays challenge. Hope to see you play again soon. ~chris
