I missed last week's Bah! Humbug! Challenge as I wasn't feeling too great ... okay I was feeling sorry for myself and a wee bit bleurgh ... but my fellow 'Humbuggers' were very understanding and let me have the week off - thanks ladies mwah xx.
Didn't want to push my luck with them though, so made a little bit of an effort this week for the 'Cutie' Challenge. (Emphasis on the 'LITTLE')
I have a gazillion different cuties in my stash so was a little spoiled for choice to be honest. However I opted for these cute Forever Friends characters for 2 reasons.
* They were close at hand - didn't have to go delving
* They are stickers - no effort required at all.
PEEL AND PLACE ... job done!
The red foiled card is from Kanban and already beautifully embossed, so nothing to do there. It was a left over strip from a previous project but was a smidgen too narrow, so to make it fit a DL card blank, I matted it onto gold mirri. Clever huh? The stickers were then popped onto scraps of gold mirri and cut around to give them a wee border before popping them, across the front with silicon glue, varying the height slightly.
Then I grabbed some Star Dust Stickles and 'sparkled up' the letters, added the sentiment and ... FINALLY came the hard part - waiting for it all to dry!
I have also 'sparkled up' their furry hat trims since taking these photos so they're even cuter.
Ann, Irene and our Guest Designer Jenny have put far more effort into their gorgeous Cute Creations, so you must visit and drool. We also named the winner to last week's prize draw so pop over to see if it was you ... but if it wasn't, don't despair. We still have one more Monthly Prize to award in November and there may be a couple of random spot prizes making their way to surprise winners before 2010 closes. There'll also be the winner of our Loyalty Prize Draw to announce in December for those who have managed to complete 30 of our 2010 challenges. So all still very exciting!
Now I wonder if Mr. Blogger has reduced my followers list to a decent size yet so I can go visiting. The thumbnails were absolutely humungous this morning (maybe been taking growth hormone?) so I could only see about 4 posts before the page ran out. NOT good.
