Today I have the honor of being the guest designer for my dear friend Lynne over at HerCraftiness. I am so excited to share this cute card I made. I am always looking for new and fun ideas to incorporate into my cards, and one day last week I found this great free svg file. (I just wish I could remember where I found it). It took several attempts of cutting out this frame before I finally got it. I am using a well used cricut mat so I had problems with the mat ripping in places it was not supposed to cut. Such is life right? Once I got the mat cut, I glued it to the card stock card (6 x 6) and added the blue gems. This alone would have made a beautiful card, however, I wanted to add Ellie, this cute elephant. Ellie is a paper piecing from Paper Piecings by Nikki. You can find her web site here. Ellie is the elephant from the So Junglicious Pattern set. What I love about paper piecing, as the designer, you can do so many different things with the pattern. It is all up to your imagination. For instance, I did not want to glue on all her little toe nails, so I used a gel pen and colored them on. I really think they they would look awesome when using some smooch. I hope you like Ellie, I think she turned out so cute. I chose the elephant from this set because Elephants never forget, and she signify that I will never forget my friend Lynne. Here is Ellie . . .
Thanks Lynne for having me as your guest designer.
I thank you Kimberly for not only being my Guest Designer today but also, for being my dear friend and helping to keep all those stupid balls in the air!
