Gooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all! Cor! Blimey! A hoooge thank you to everyone who entered into last week's challenge. I had a whopping 45 entries! Seriously, that is the most entries I have ever seen... like ever! I will let you know more about the candy winner in a few moments... but first, on with this week's challenge. The theme is BROWNS... my fave colour combo's! To join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy. Add in the theme AND some stamping and then pop back here, leave me a comment with a linky to the place you are showing your entry and I will hop on over to visit. If you don't have a blog, you can email me your entry by attaching a small res. pic or alternatively, you can join in via Facebook - simply tag my name. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 5th April 2014 (April! Already!)
So, I have kept you in suspense long enough.... you wanna know the winner of the mega candy? So, I fed the number of entrants into Random.org.... pressed the button and the number he chose is.... #30 which tallies with the comment and entry from Barbara Cady! Congratulations Barb, please pop me and email with your address and I will have your goodies into the post for you.
My entry this week is a little MDF heart that I have covered with scrapbook papers and then jazzed up with Distress Inks. The papers are Teresa Collins Creative Expressions ones and my fave ones in the pack are the neutral tones. This background paper is fabby for just that, using it as a background. I used a couple of That Special Touch stencils, blending Frayed Burlap and Vintage Photo DI's through them... I love overlaying stencils and using more than one design to add extra interest. The stamping behind the floral bunch is a dandelion stamp from Butterfly Wishes Eco Green set... and then I got crazy with the Heartfelt Creations flowers... stamping lots of different sizes onto the papers, cutting them out, edging with Vintage Photo and then layering up.
The sentiment is from a Creative Expressions stamp set (think it is Thoughtful Ssentiments but I can't remember lol) and look at the scribbles around the edges... it makes me very happy to see sewing on paper projects.. but as I am a very lot rubbish with a sewing machine, I use a fine liner pen to do them myself. One day, I will be able to thread a sewing machine, get the stitches to stitch and not break it... one day lol And do you see the buzzy buzzy bee? He is a Studio 490 Embellish Your Art fella... I love him, along with the Crow, he is my fave EYA piece.
I shall away now... today has me very muchly excited! Oh yesh, it is the first meet up of the British Touring Car Championship 2014. We were thinking of driving down to Brands Hatch and spending the day watching it live. Then we both came to the conclusion that whilst it is a great day out, both of us have an enlarged Idle Bone at the moment and decided that the day, spent indoors watching it on ITV4, whilst consuming several hundredweight of snacks and nibbles and spending some of the ££ we have saved on a rather delicious looking leg of lamb, is a much better idea. And. We didn't fancy the 5am set off to get there in time to get a decent place to park and view! Thanks for looking...have a great day... TTFN
PS.... GO PLATO!!!
