Now, here's a statement ....

... that you won't hear from me very often.  Are you sitting down?  Are you ready?  Are you sure you're ready?  Nah, don't believe you, I'll give you a moment to compose yourself ......

This week's challenge from Lili's Little Fairies is Spots or Stripes - that is such a cool challenge, love it!  So, as soon as I got in from work tonight it was a quick cuppa and straight out to the "studio" to look for spots or stripes.  I found both.  I couldn't decide.  I used both, what the heck.


Sorry, I've must have picked up the wonky camera by mistake (it is the camera, honestly, cough).

Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image  LOTV Delivering The Presents
Medium  Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers  ALL from same pack of Dovecraft Back To Basics Vintage Christmas (yummy)
Sentiment  LOTV Happy Circular Sentiments
Extras  Dovecraft Back to Basics buttons 

Here's a close up of that cute little chap (got so carried away I forgot to take it before sticking the sentiment in place)


Oh, you are still waiting for that statement from me?  You sure you are feeling strong enough to cope with these momentous words?  Here goes then ......

I LOVE THIS CARD!!!!  For once, I chose the papers first so there was none of my usual paint-and-panic antics, and the inks behaved themselves so well, and I love the vintage feel of the whole thing, and I may actually "accidentally" forget this one is in the box and not send it out!

It's been a long week, I need a lie down.

Hugs Sxx

Wowzers! I love it and I'm not surprised that you love it! Maybe you craft better when you've recklessly spent huge amounts of money on LOTV goodies? Just a thought! I love the vintage feel of it too and I LOVE that image. I know it's in your box and I'm coming a looking on Dec 26th! Maybe you could send it out to s short chubby Fairy whose been a good girl? Gorgissimo! Hugs, Jayne x

Fabulous Squirrel - love everything about it. I just had to do the spotty and stripey thing too lol, and hey I managed to find both ON MY IMAGE !! Yay! Still used both on my papers too though, just to be on the safe side :-) I definitely think that a spending spree on LotV gets the creative juices flowing - well it certainly did for you anyways!
Hugs
