Crafty Cardmakers #59 No Floral Embellishments

Well it’s our first post back at Crafty Cardmakers and this time around we would like to see your creations that DO NOT include floral embellishments. So you can use florals in your papers, a floral image or florals in your image, but no flowers of any kind added to your project, so no actual flowers, flower shaped buttons, flower charms etc. etc.

We have a whole new bunch of Sponsors this year, and I used an image from one of our new sponsors Digi Doodle Shop for my card. As soon as I saw him ‘Hobo Prayer’ I could see the funny side of turkey soup so close to Christmas.


I have coloured him with promarkers and prismas. I think he has a fabulous ‘lived in’ face. The paper is from K&Co, buttons from my stash and the silly rhyme is mine own! Much as we all joke about what to do with all that turkey I am actually a huge fan of it and would happily eat it for several days afterwards but it doesn’t hang around that long in my house as the dog is a fan too!

We are sponsored in this challenge by ddssponsor_MainImage and image so why not come on over and win one of our fabulous prizes?
