Our sponsor this week is Lawn Fawn and I don't have to tell you about their adorable stamps. Swing by their on-line store and take a peek. But I must warn you... resistance is futile!
My card is based on a beautiful book by Sandra Horning called "The Giant Hug". It's for ages 3 - 7... a little outside my age group but, trust me, it is a delightful, heart-warming book. I bought it for my nephew and couldn't help but read it, over and over again. It will melt your heart. To young mommies out there....put this on your list!
At the end of this post, I've included the synopsis from Amazon, but before that let's take a look at the card I made to go with this book, using Lawn Fawn's "On The Mend" clear stamp set:
|I'm using leftover papers from Cosmo Cricket's "Togetherness" 6x6 pad - can't throw away the scraps. Some of the papers here remind me of my Gran.|
|Now tell me that image will not make Nana swoon! Adorable! I coloured it with Promarkers and used Spellbinders Circles and Scalloped Circles dies for cutting and layering.|
|A couple of buttons and some twine complete this simple card.|
|At the last minute, I decided that the hug should be from all of us.... a group hug of sorts!|
I'm also playing along with: Use It Tuesday #56 "Anything Goes" (hoard items: DP and buttons); Sweet Stamps Challenge #119 "Flowers"; Craft-room Challenge "Use Your Scraps"; Love To Create #67 Read All About It"; Craftin' Desert Divas #7 "Ribbon / Twine" and Fitz Town Challenge #01 "Anything Goes".
Thanks for stopping by today. For more ideas and inspiration, skip on over to the rest of my DT sister....and they'll have you creating in no time. And before I forget, here's what Amazon had to say about "The Giant Hug":
How do you give your granny a hug when she lives far away? Send it through the mail, of course! Owen’s hug travels across the country in a series of hilarious, sometimes awkward, always heartfelt embraces between animals of different shapes and sizes. Valeri Gorbachev’s adorable artwork pairs beautifully with Sandra Horning’s charming text, and makes for a fun, funny, and educational read-aloud. An unexpected twist at the end will delight readers and have kids asking for this book again and again.
