My Favorite Nursery Rhyme - Winnie the Pooh

Over the years, Winnie the Pooh has taken on many different faces.  But my favorite, by far, is classic Pooh.  As he would say, "Oh, Bother!  What's all the fuss"?  I just love the classic look.  So, when I saw this adorable challenge at http://www.simonssaysstampblog.blogspot.com/ where we were asked to come up with a creation using our favorite Fairy Tale or Nursery Rhyme, I immediately thought of Classic Pooh.  I have a vintage copy of Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne which I absolutely cherish, although it's falling apart at the seams.  It's been read hundreds of times, and the new ones are cute, but just cannot compare with the original.  I adore Classic Pooh.  So, I decided to use some nursery rhyme patterned paper, and then used a vintage Winnie the Pooh image and double matted it on two shades of matching Bazzill cardstock to compliment the vintage Winnie the Pooh ribbons I had in my stash.  I knew they would come in handy some day.  I printed the quote on the computer, inked everything, added a button with Baker's Twine, some sticker gems, and that's about it.  It's a very simple card - but I think it fits the challenge.  You can read all about, and even enter, this amazingly fun challenge by clicking on this easy link:  http://simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/10/simon-says-be-inspired-by-nursery.html

This is my absolute favorite challenge every week, and I DREAM each and every week of winning this challenge.  So, why not match it up with my favorite nursery rhyme.  A great combination - just like Pooh and Piglet.  I would be more than thrilled to win this challenge.  You can win one of these generous $50 gift certificates if you are drawn - to spend at their AWESOME on-line store.  Check out the goood here:  http://www.simonsaysstamp.com/ which I would have NO problem spending.

Here is my Nursery Rhyme card.  I hope that it brings someone on a trip down memory lane.  It's up for grabs for a lucky person who: 1) becomes a follower of my blog, and 2) leaves a comment about this card/challenge.  I love hearing your comments.

I appreciate you stopping by to take a peek, and really hope you will follow and leave a comment.  When the challenge at Simon Says Stamp ends, I will draw a winner and send out the card.  Thanks so much.

Today is mid-week, and I hope everyone is having a great week, and that the remainder of your week will be filled with blessings that abound beyond your wildest expectations,.  Thanks for looking.

God bless your day, and the rest of your week.

My Cup Runneth Over,

Karen

  14. This card is the cutest thing! My son was given a set of the original style Pooh books 21 years ago when he was born. I just love them. They still sit out on book shelves in our living room.
