Tuesday Taggers 19 01 10

The theme for this week's Tuesday Taggers is "Leftovers". I've only just started doing their challenges, and didn't know about saving things from Christmas for this week's, so I hope this will count.

I've made a card for my younger grandson for his first birthday next Thursday, and apart from the lettering, it's made entirely from the packaging from a set of children's reward stickers. Very plain and simple, but the bright colours will appeal, and he loves animals, so I think he'll like it.

Here's the original packaging:

And here's the card:

I think I'm safe posting it now - I don't think he'll be reading my blog before next Thursday! (Although [proud grandma alert!] he has been walking since he was 10 and a half months old, can say quite a few words and does great impressions of sheep and lions!)

PS. Is anyone else unable to see their followers at the moment? Since yesterday Blogger Dashboard tells me I have 39, but on my blog there's just a blank space where they should be. And I can't see anyone else's. I've had a couple of new ones today - thank you and welcome to my blog, but I can't see who you are! Please leave me a comment and say hello, so I can come and visit you!

PPS. When adding my entry to Tuesday Taggers I inadvertently put the wrong link in Mr Linky, & had to post another saying ignore the previous one. Hands up all those who looked at it anyway!

Wonderful! So very, very cute!!! I can't believe Andrew is one already. I would've guessed about eight months! Where has the year gone!

What a brilliant card Lynne and I bet it's a hit with your grandson. Well done on being so creative.

My followers had disappeared when I first went onto my blog but after I reloaded the page they appeared. There's obviously a general problem with them, I think.

Love the fresh colours Lynne and I think the images you have used are perfect.

Had the same blogger problems this weeks with followers and not only were they missing on my own blog, could not see anyone elses either.

Think Mr Blogger takes it in turns with Mr Liny going AWAL.

Lovely bright card Lynne, your grandson will love it! My followers were blank for a while too lol! xx


Hi Lynne - what a fantastic idea - not only is the packaging a great colour for a child's card, but it even has the cute little animals on too!! Love it!!
Thanks for popping by today and leaving a kind message - I really appreciate it.
Hugs, Sylvia xxx
