thimblerig:

to cheat by trickery
or
 to swindle by a trick in which a small ball or pea is quickly shifted from under one to another of three small cups to fool the spectator guessing its location
 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Adding another camera themed card for the Moxie Fab - Camera Craze...I mean, how much fun is one allowed? I hope endless amounts! This will be the 12th card in my 30 Mother's Day cards in 30 days challenge issued by the Art MoB.

I love that a very old Cricut cartridge had something that would work for the ever trendy camera craze, which is a Polaroid frame. I can still smell the chemicals from my dad's Polaroid and watching with fascination as the picture emerged right in front of our eyes...just like magic!
 
I added a small dollop of LSD under the butterfly wings, just to give it a slight dimension.
 
Echo Park - pattern paper
Cricut - Country Life, p. 73 ( flowers )
Don Juan cartridge , p. 70 ( Polaroid frame )
Paisley cartridge - p. 40 ( butterfly )
Helmar - Liquid Scrapdots
Faber Castell - PITT pen
Dymo Label Maker ( perfect retro labeling for the Polaroid frame! )

Aud Sentiments Challenge - Easter
 
I don't really need to explain the sentiment....do I girls? lol
The rabbit looks too scared to answer!
 
I think I cut the carrot from Create a Critter cartridge, it was a while back when Cricut gave us a free cut in the Cricut Craft Room. It's a really cute cartridge...and Jamie, if your reading this....it would make a fabulous Christmas present for me next year..hint hint...lol
 
Ranger - stickles
Maya Roads - tan felt flower
EK Success - Gem sticker
everything else - from my Easter stash bag
 
So, the question begs to be asked.....Does size matter?

You made me smile recalling my dad's old polaroid and us 6 kids standing around watching the magic. Waiting to we were "old" enough to be the one to pull them apart! Those pics are some of the most fun one we have in our collection.
Your cards are lovely. The first one is so cheerful an love the use of the labels, and the carrot one cracked me up!

Hot diggity! Your carrot card is so provocative, my dear! What sweet bunny wouldn't like a big carrot?! Lol. Love your Polaroid card too, and all the memories that come with it!

Redanne said...

Oh I remember polaroid cameras too, they were such fun! Love the word today Sandee, I never knew that is what that trick was called, so thanks for that. Both cards are beautiful, love the bunny on the second (it looks like Tim's new tag one...). I don't think size matters at all - but quality does! Hugs, Anne x

Katie said...

Hahaha, I cannot stop laughing at the carrot card! Good thing I am on an off period and there is no one around to ask why I am laughing!

That takes the fun out of trying to remember what you already have. Geez, make it easy for a person. ;-) And did the butterfly see multicolor versions of itself as a human while it was tripping?
