Hug Time, big time!!!!

Hello my dear Blogger buddies,
it seems as though the week has run away from me,
and as I thought my little "vacation" from work
would be CRAFT-O-RAMA,
it is turning into anything but...
Alas, I have a card to share, and hooray,
it goes along with a few different challenges,
so that makes me feel a little better about my creations,
or lack thereof.

**indoor lighting photos, sorry :(
I've made this for my husband to give
to my dad for the birthday present he received.
Sort of a double negative, don't you think?
Firstly, my husband receives a present from my dad,
which happens to be 4 times the quantity of gifts given to me,
then I have to make the thank you card?!?!
This system is flawed!!

I've played along with Lili of the Valley
where there is a colour challenge of
brown, green, and orange.
Over at A Spoon Full Of Sugar
they want to see Fall-inspired projects,
because of colours used and my thankful theme,
I get to play over there.
At Papertake Weekly,
the challenge is Faking It, hahahahaha,
so I get to play there because I've faked my
flower, doiley and lace with punches.
I've used the wonderful sketch from
Stampin' For The Weekend,
and even though the blog is on hold at the moment,
I loved the sketch and wanted to make sure to play,
as they are one heckuva bunch of sweet ladies,
sending warm thoughts and big hugs your way ladies!!

Now, a little bit about the card,
my image is called Hug Time
and it's from Lili of the Valley,
I've coloured with watercolours,
the papers are from a lot of different packs,
so if there's one you like, ask, I'll give you the deets,
the fern and flower are EK Success punches,
used the MS doiley punch
and a Fiskars circular lace punch.
Ribbon, eyelets and button from stash,
and the sentiment is from the same set it's always from, haha.

Welp, I hope your week has been treating you well.
I hope my week will start treating me well, haha.
Take Care,
