Tuesday Taggers - Nursery Rhymes

Hiya folks!

Hope I find all you poorly ladies getting better? Seems everyone has some sort of bug at the moment - must be the wierd weather we are all experiencing. Warm one day, cold the next. Never know what to put on in the mornings!

Enough blather, on to my card, which today is my DT piece for Tuesday Taggers. This week our Georgina has chosen 'Nursery Rhymes' as her theme (gee, thanks hun!) which had me in a total quandry all week wondering what to do. Then yesterday (not too late then) a brain flash hit me and I started to doodle, and here is what I came up with:

It's the Little Nut Tree.

I had been wanting to doodle something for Christmas for a little while, this was in my mind for that, so I decided to combine my doodle with this challenge. I will be releasing this one into the Delicious Doodles Shop tomorrow (Wednesday), along with another image I am still working on. Here is my card:

And here is the Rhyme:

I had a little nut tree, nothing would it bear,
but a silver nutmeg, and a golden pear.
The King of Spain's daughter came to visit me,
and all for the sake of my little nut tree.

Her dress was made of crimson, jet black was her hair,
she asked me for my nut tree and my golden pear.
I said, "So fair a Princess never did I see,
I'll give you all the fruit from my little nut tree”.

Had to google it I'm afraid, I'm rubbish at remembering nursery rhymes, even though my D2 is six years old!! tee-hee. I have followed a sketch from Midnight Madness for the layout. You get to choose between two sketches there, and they even give you a sneaky peak on a Friday - cool huh? Here is the sketch:

My papers are all digital, stored on the compy from various suppliers. I punched a flower using gold and silver mirri, topped off with a wee pearl. Ribbon, brads and pearls are from the stash, as is the gold and silver stickles. I added some of this to the nutmeg and pear too. Here is a close-up:

Forgive the naff lighting, we have a dark and damp day today here in NE Scotland, which doesn't make for a good photo!!

This fits a couple of other challenges, so here goes:
Tip Top Tuesday - Anything Goes
Fab 'n' Funky - 'Yummy' (bit obscure, but the pear and nutmeg are edible!!)
Simon Says - 3 different embellishments, 2 dp's, 1 image
Crafty Catz - Nursery Rhymes
Allsorts - Bingo Selection (I chose Punches, Flowers and Pearls)
OCC - Embellishments

OK then peeps, that's it for today. Off to finish up more DT stuff and try to get organised. Feel a bit like a floundering fish at the moment - too much going on in me head!! See ya later folks!
