I guess you could say that I am
in the midst of a Lil Lolita's bonanza,
as here we are, yet another post
containing these loverly ladies!!!
It's the 8th of the month,
that means it's time for a new sketch at
Tickled Pink Stamps Monthly Challenge!!!
This sketch is fairly simple, if you can get around the fact that it is comprised mainly of a circle!!! I am missing a sentiment, as you can see, because I wanted to leave that to the person giving the card/tag to decide it's purpose and I guess I flipped it too. You might have spotted the lovely Evie out and about earlier this week, but I wrangled her back in and glued her down onto this project, sorry Evie :( She's coloured with distress inks, my DP is K & Co. and I used a Fiskars round lace punch for the border. I attempted to sew around the circle... This was my first go at something more complex than a line (which I can't sew straight, if that's any indicator of my plight with this circular shape) and that is where the flowers come in, lol, they cover my mishaps rather nicely. On the back I've placed a distressed and sewn white circle for writing on, and I know the photo doesn't show it, but there is a ribbon loop on the top of the card so it can be hung or displayed or tacked to the wall, whichever works best.
And a look at that sketch:
Remember, you can use any stamp that Tickled Pink Stamps sells to be in to win the fabulous prizes each month, and nope, you didn't necesarily have to buy it from TPS, click HERE to head to the shop to see what your options are :) And Kellie is offering a shopping voucher of $50.00 so uhhh, you may want to check it out!!! Also, we have opened up the challenges to any and all brands of images, however, in order to qualify for the prize, your stamp has to be one that TPS stocks.
Well, it's back to school time here in Kansas and I am tuckered out after a long afternoon of shopping. We were running around like chickens with our heads cut off, from store to store to store with coupons coupons and MORE COUPONS!!! We done good, real good, my stepdaughters sure are pleased, that much is for sure. They started complaining about their backs hurting right AFTER we completed shopping for them and had to move on to the grocery portion of the experience, funny how that works!! Speaking of coupons, I got a new MS doily punch, thank goodness, I can sleep sound tonight knowing that my next project will have my favourite punch on it!!
Well, I am waffling,
I'd better let you all move along,
thanks for stopping by,
and I hope we'll see you at the
sketch challenge this month!!
