And can you believe it?? I am sooo happy - I've been picked in the Top 5 again over at Fashionista!!
We're now at the 'peoples choice' stage again so please take pity on me cos I didn't win last time and pop over and vote for me... promise to share my lottery winnings with you if you do...when my numbers come up that is...lol
You may even win the goodies that Fashionista have put up for one lucky voter!I've had a mad busy weekend and managed yesterday to find a spare hour to finish this for a lady at the Bowls club who has just added another grandchild to her family. I used the same image and colour scheme as one I did a few months ago - but made this one as an easel. This LOTV image rates amongst one of my favourites.
I stamped the image with Versamark onto white textured paper and paper pieced the little blanket. The tiny piece at the top across baby's little shoulder was a bit fiddly to cut out but managed it! Coloured the rest with promarkers, cut out the image with a nestie and stitched onto the scalloped frame.
The papers are all 'My Baby Love' from Raspberry Road and I think the soft blues and lemons work really well together and are great for a baby boy card where you want to escape from just blue!
I stitched most of the papers and last week I bought this ribbon in a tiny haberdashers in my local market town - she had lots of new ribbon in lovely colours and designs and I spent rather a lot of money - and before you ask - Of Course I NEEDED it............ lol
The sentiment on the front is by TLC, (I think it's just right for a new baby) and popped on some tiny lemon pearls in the bottom right corner, a couple of 'baby blue' buttons and a pram buttton from my stash.
I decided to put the new arrival's name on the easel base instead of the front - and tied a smaller bow using a thinner piece of the same ribbon, adding a tiny metal heart charm which says 'Made With Love'- the lemon teddy is also from the same button pack and then I put three more lemon pearls onto the base prop.
My desk unfortunately looks like an absolute bomb site and I have precisely two inches of space left, the floor is littered with all kinds of bits and I HAVE to clear up before I do anything else - which is really annoying - as I have three images somewhere under the pile that are waiting to be done ( if I find them and they're messed up I'll be cursing!!)
Fussy and Fancy - New Baby
CRAFT - Easel Card
Charisma - Use a Metal charm
I Did It - Anything Goes
The sun is shining brightly here and it's quite warm - I did a pile of washing and was just about to hang it on the line when my lovely farmer neighbour decided to muck spread the field opposite with some unmentionable concoction that smells what can only be described as 'less than pleasant'... and that's being polite!! But at least it's an excuse for me not to go and work outside - don't want to risk being gassed do I? So the craft desk and the floor it is..............any excuse????? You're darn right!
Enjoy your day!
