This one is for Friday Sketchers and Totally Papercrafts, I was on the Totally Papercrafts site checking this week's challenge and I spotted my name - I thought "what's my name doing there??" - I'd only won last weeks challenge, how exciting is that!! In fact writing this has just reminded me I started emailing them, got distracted and never finished the email, I shall do that as soon as I've finished this post.
I followed the fab sketch by Janneke at Friday Sketchers and
Totally Papers Crafts have a recipe for us this week:- 1 image, 1 ribbon, 2 papers and 3 embellishments. I'm not sure whether or not I have this right. The 1 image is this gorgeous LOTV 'Big Present', for the 1 ribbon I've substituted the jute webbing, the two papers are DCWV Linen Closet - the pale brown and the turquoise, and the 3 embellishments are buttons, photo-holder (or whatever you call them) and brad to fasten it.
I'm not sure if the jute webbing will classify as ribbon, the corrugated card as a paper or whether it was three embellishment in total or three types - if I've got it wrong, which is more than likely - throw me out!!
I nearly paper pieced the present with newspaper - my two when they were very young once gave me a birthday present wrapped in newspaper, they said they had spent all their money on the present and couldn't afford wrapping paper - I suspect the sweetie shop had seen some of the money but the memory of it still makes me smile.
The image is coloured in Copics, the buttons are Basic Grey and everything else is from my stash.
