SWEET STUFF and LOTV Sneak Peek/Challenge!!!
Happy Thursday!! I hope you are having a delightful week and soon we will all be into a magnificent weekend! When you read this I am on a wee sabbatical but will be home on Thursday evening. This week has been a fun one! We celebrated my Mom's 81st birthday on Tuesday at the Life Care Center where she has lived for the past almost four years and today is my Auntie's 73rd birthday so we are away for a bit more celebration...Ka-CHING!!!!!
Today is the LOTV Challenge where we are using "Circles or Dots" so I hope you enjoy my little SNEAK PEEK of the most adorable Champion Ted from the next release which are the cutest little animals ever and will be available on March 3 at the LOTV web site....Please come over to the Challenge Blog and join with us so that you will be eligible for a fabulous prize from LOTV!!!!!
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all matting--the background panels were all machine stitched. The DP is PTI Dots and the other is from the Blueberry Hill paper pad by Nikki Sivils--I love those primary colors!!! The Champion Ted image was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics, adding a touch of Clear Spica to the cup and a mixture of Flower Soft for the grounding, and tiny red flowers for additional color, texture, and interest. For the hortizontal I used a small navy gingham ribbon tied into a double flat bow. The upper Blue Ribbon Medal is made with a Tim Holtz rosette die and Nesties with the computer generated sentiment. I also added a bit more navy gingham to make the rosette into a Blue Ribbon!!
On the inside I used stars from a cheapie pair of dangle earrings on the first panel to offset the flat bow and on the second panel I added a trophy button to the jotting panel.
I hope you like my little submission and will decide to join with all of us over at the LOTV Challenge this week, and every week on Thursday!!!!
