A card and a fridge magnet

Cor it's a bit frosty today, I've had to leave the heating on or we'll go numb, brrrrrr! Well today I have another set to show you, a card and matching acrylic fridge magnet.

















I've used Early Espresso and Pink Pirouette card along with some accent stickers from Nursery Suite Quick Accents. At first glance it's a predominantly baby themed kit but I've got so many more uses for it!
Here's the card:


















The background has been created by repeat stamping the eat cake image from the hostess level two set Cute By The Inch. Then a simple punched band of Early Espresso Card, a sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration set Happy Moments and some stickers from the Accents pack. I coloured the icing on the cake with a Marker and added a pearl for the cherry!

The fridge magnet is made in the same way. It's one of those acrylic ones with the magnet on the back, you create your design and then click the front cover on. It's about 2.5 inches square. I have a box full of these and intend to start using them now, I think I've had them over a year.


















I stamped the background in the same way as the card but on to a scrap of spotty paper from the Subtles Paper Pack. I thought the small spots on the image would go nicely with it.

I'm going to join in with:
After his first dairy free day, Blake seems a lot calmer today. He slept a little better and has been a lot less agitated so far this morning. Here's hoping it continues! Right I'm off to do some prep for my home workshop tomorrow morning, can't wait to see everyone.
