I won a digital image called..........Wonder Lilly.
This digital image is a SBS (simply Betty stamp), I won this on a late night quiz, there was a few of us online the other night on Facebook and Rio, who is Betty's daughter held a little quiz. We had to complete the full chorus of the song lyrics she put up. I managed to get the lyrics from a Rocky Horror show song right, I didn't even know it was for a prize and when I was asked for my email I was shocked. So I sent my email to Rio and within a few seconds I had an email in my inbox from Betty, I opened this email and gave out a squeal as this little beauty of an image was inside!! I couldn't thank Betty and Rio enough as this came just at the right time for a special friend who is a wonder woman and who needs cheering up right now.
You can buy this image along with the other amazing images from this range that are inspired by superheros like super girl, iron man, captain america, bat girl, spider girl etc with many other amazing images, go and check out the SBS website.
The day after the email had dropped in my inbox I had to print this out to make something. I printed her out, coloured her twice just to test I wanted them colours. I coloured her with my promarkers, I really like the gold metallic promarker but my paper didn't :( It started to buckle (is that what you say when the fibers start to lift off the paper?). I knew I wanted red and blue card for the background but had an idea about the patterned paper, I defo wanted stars! Could I find the starts sheet I know I have?? NOOOOO! But I found this little beauty from a Amy Tangerine 12x12 paper pad. You may ask why could you not find the sheet you needed?? Well that's a funny story, I wanted to organise my room as you do and I started to sort it out little by little until one day I went in to do something and WHAM it hit me, it looked like a bomb had gone off in my room! I have slowly got my papers in some kind of order but they really need a better storage solution as they are all in boxes, which takes forever to go through to find what you want or need. It takes me forever to make a card with my health etc but to have to hunt as well its like a week long process if not longer sometimes. I am thinking of cutting a lot of them down and getting smaller boxes for them that I can keep on the shelf and have them separated by themes, patterns etc. Anyway sorry I rambled off then, back to the card. So I cut down the card and patterned paper, picked out a lovely heart doily and stuck them all down. Now was the tricky bit, what did I have that would go? What was to hand? Oh dear where is it all? I took a slow walk about the room and peered into some bags and boxes but nothing was catching my eye at all. I thought about ribbon, beaded trim, stick pins, lots of bling but nope I wasn't happy with any of them. Then there sat on my desk was the basket with these flowers in, so grabbing the basket and throwing the ones that wouldn't go to one side I found these. So that was that sorted but now I have no sentiment, I thought about not putting one on but needed to fill the space in the heart with something. Again could only use what was to hand and knew I had some already stamped out, I do not know where this one is from, I think it could be either a Andy Skinner or Tim Holtz stamp. I added some gems and I was happy as Larry.
I am so pleased with this card and I had a great time making it for my super friend (you know who you are!). I really hope she likes this card and she remembers she is a wonder-ful woman who can and will get through the difficult times right now. I love ya girl!! You are my sister from another mother and mister!!
Again with a long post, sorry I don't half ramble lol. Have a wonderful weekend everyone and thank you for stopping by. Remember any questions please just ask. Until next time.
