Hi peeps and a happy Wednesday to you all :)xxx
Today’s my first week as Guest Designer for the fabulous Simon Says Challenge (poor things have got me for the next 4 weeks!!) and it’s a lovely one for me to start with.
So today, Simon Says
so it’s all about thanks and thanksgiving, and look ……
… what’s up for grabs :)
Also the DT have been contacted by a lovely and very talented lady, Vera, who is organising a card drive to send Thanksgiving cards to the elderly who live alone or in nursing homes. The Design Team has sent all of their cards to Vera for the CARING HEARTS CARD DRIVE and if you are able to help I’m sure Vera would be so grateful. If you get a sec peeps, perhaps you could post this on your blog and spread the word xxx
And you can find the Caring Hearts Drive details here :)
So as we don’t have Thanksgiving here in the UK, I decided to go with a thanks / the caring hearts theme.
And this is what I did.
It’s actually ….
… an easel card so I am entering it into this weeks Lovely hAnglars Only challenge which this week is to make a non square easel card.
I coloured this gorgeous little H&S girl with Copics in these colours -
Skin: E00, E21, R11, R20
Hair: E42, E50
Clothes: BV00, RV0000, V12
I made a little flowery arrangement thing out of a bit of tulle and some pretty little Wild Orchid Crafts blooms. The big bad Deep Edger Border Punch - Flower Bed was hauled out and put to work – I thought I’d give the PATP a day off!!!
You can get these punches and your Copics from Tracy at Dies To Die For
I made 3 little ‘buttons’ out of a heart punch and a tiny hole punch then threaded them with a bit of twine.
The heart shaped base, the white frame and all the hearts on here were cut using the Wild Card Cricut cartridge. I am ashamed that I have these and never use them – yes, shame on you Miss Piggy!!!!! The frame actually cuts little holes all around the edge so I just filled them in with some self adhesive pearls.
Did you notice btw that I’ve inked the edges again?
For some reason. every now an then I get the urge to do this, and God only knows why cos I’m not the neatest edge inker-upper by a long way. But then once I’ve done it, I usually end up doodling faux stitching all over it!!!!
Right on that note, I’m off. I’m getting the birds nest that is my hair cut later. I look like a cross between Freddie Boswell and Wurzel Gummidge at the mo.
It’s not attractive!!!!
I’ll see you in the morrow for another Lili Of The Valley Thursday Challenge, and here’s …
… a little sneakie peakie for you till then.
Have a fab day and hugs to all xxx
