House of Cards July Challenge Food and/or colour

Hello Everyone
Thank you for popping by
I don't know where you got the idea that I do Marathons Jennie L The closest I get to a Marathon is something called a Snicker now. I do a Fun Run once a year at Harefield Hospital which is only 5k long. 
On Tuesday I mentioned that I'd bought an X-cut puzzle shaped die and this is the first project I have made and I'm going to enter it into House of Cards July challenge See here 

This is the photograph for inspiration

And this is my offering. The photo is not showing very well that I'd pieced the puzzle back together and left one fixed with a 3d foam pad. I always make something in its simplest form first. Next time to showcase the separate pieces of puzzle I will space them apart slightly and/or sit some flat and some raised.

6x6 card blank
Serif digikit - a freebie called Eccentric Carousel 2x pieces of material ( The first mat is merry-go-round horses shaded pink to match the pink card
Liddl pink card 

Enjoy the rest of your day. I'm off to Craft Club tonight I am determined to cut out the infamous dress I am trying to make. They have large tables I can push together or a large parquet floor I can lay the fabric on 
Apologies re photos (again!) not sorted camera out yet


  1. Hi Karen,
    I knew it was a fun run, but couldn't remember with my old age what to call it, so I put marathon,and thought it would bring a smile to your face.
    Wonderful creation today.
    That jigsaw die looks very interesting.
    Wonderful colour choice for that challenge.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  8. Hi Karen (playing catch up,yet again)!! Love this card and how you have used the puzzle die - you have reminded me that I have a Cuttlebug jigsaw piece die from yonks ago that I have never used!!! Guess what I will be doing later on - bearing in mimd I can't find most of my crafty stuff (still packed away) I wonder how I expect to find this die but I'm a stubborn old bird so won't give up easily!! Hope you are okay xx GailT xx
