Hello, and welcome!
I'm posting quite a bit earlier in the day than I normally do because, tonight......I've got a date with Derek.
As you may very well know, that is not the name of my Hubster.......nor is it the name of one of my boys.....nor is it the name of the dreamy next-door-but-three neighbour....ahem......no, indeedy!
Derek is a young gentleman of almost 87 who looks very dashing in his dark blue blazer, black beret, and a bright red poppy in his lapel. Oh, and his trusty walking stick in hand.
He and I are on duty, tonight, in the foyer of our local Asda-Walmart store........we'll be
accosting asking folks to donate the price of a red paper poppy...with free pin, no less!.....to aid the cause of the
This year, the Legion are hoping to raise in excess of £42 million.....and Derek (who does fundraising events all year round) and I will be doing "our bit", tonight.
Okey-dokey, so what's on the agenda over at Card Crafter's Circle then? Well, I'll tell you......our theme this week is one that I feel in my water is goin' to be very popular......
Now, do not dare try to tell me that you don't have any 'cos I know that will be a big, fat FIB!...hahaa......and, if you don't join in the challenge, you'll miss out on the chance of 7 digi stamps from our beloved
You really should go and check out what the Design Team have come up with, using some lovely images from our sponsor.....and you'll never believe it!........I'm the only one who hasn't made a Christmas card!!
I know.....how did that happen!
Instead, I made this little cutie, using Scarlett Shopping Diva
I think I'm still in shock that I didn't make a Christmas card....ha! I probably could have, too, with this fab little image....but it does look as if she's bought only for herself, eh?
Okay, white card base, layered up with freebie papers, and I coloured up Miss Scarlett with my Promarkers to match the papers.....the round label that she's prancin' 'n' dancin' on was part of the freebie......
Oops, just realised she's gone out without her lippie on....or maybe she's had one too many coffee and doughnut breaks....ha!
I added the white dots to her dress and bag with my new Pentel gel pen. I wish my hair looked like this!
I printed the sentiment (comes with the image) and stuck it onto a ticket that was in the freebie set, then added the pearly star.....seemed right for Scarlett.......
The cute little handbag sentiment is from Craftwork Cards, and I pinned it with a tiny pearly stud....you can also get a glimpse of the pink and black checked ribbon.....I used to have a skirt like that, lol.....
I rarely show the insides of my cards, but have noticed that lots of crafters seem to be showin' theirs, and....as my Mam says......there's no show without Punch, so I'm showin' mine, too......ha!
I cut those handbag circles from a piece of paper that was also in the kit....a little piece of card behind them to make them a little sturdier....and Miss Scarlett is set to go!
Do come and join us at the challenge blog.... I'd love to see you there.
And buy a poppy, when you are out and about, to show your appreciation for our Armed Services men and women in the United Kingdom!
