More Rocker Cards

Hello Everyone,

I hope this finds you well and having a fun Friday.

Before I share anything today, I'd like to welcome the newest followers, Veerle, Sue, SallyH, Sian, Laurie, TonyR and Kathy, to join me here. Apologies to anyone I may have missed but thank you to each and every one of you ... it's lovely to know that you are popping in every now and again to see what I've been up to :) Now on to the project I have to share today.
Recently I shared a little rocker card (see it here) which I thought would be a fun Christmas card for a child ... well, I've made four more and here are all five in a row on the mantelpiece. One for each of the little ones in our family.

Looks like I've made six but the reindeer has sneaked into the photo shots twice :)

The base, measuring 4" (10.5cm) in diameter, is made from scraps of leftover cardstock. The patterned paper is from stash of 6"x6" pads - I just picked out little patterns that I thought suitable - and each circle of paper is edged with Stickles glitter glue. All the chipboard toppers were found in a box full stashed away unused and unloved - these ones are Noel Chipboard Shapes from Docrafts. I find I have a ton of chipboard toppers, various designs and makers, mainly acquired free with magazines, and I rarely find a use for them. They are really not my thing but, happily, they are perfect for these little rocker cards.

I think the grands are going to have some fun with cards they can actually play with this Christmas. By the way, each card is so quick and easy to make I'd made them all before I knew it  :)

I'm submitting these to the following challenges:

Pixie's Snippet's Playground - Week 145  ... scraps galore went in to these cards
CHNC challenge 197: something beginning with P ... P for the Presents on two of the cards, Poinsettias on patterned paper on one, Pink on another and Polka dots on yet another

Thanks for popping in. I wish you an enjoyable weekend.

Happy Crafting,

Fantastic rocker cards Elizabeth! Something I now really have to try as they look such fun and, as you say, great for kids to have something that's mobile :)

I loved your Friday post about Alan - long may things stay as they are for him. It almost sounds as if a pinched nerve got 'unpinched'. Fingers crossed my friend!
