Everybody needs a hug!

Hi, hope you've all had a good week, but I'm really happy that the weekend has finally arrived.  I'd like to say 'Welcome" to my new followers and really big thank you to you all new and old for all the lovely comments you leave.  I love reading each and every one.

It's been a strange week in the Willis household.  My husband has been away all week on a photography holiday with friends.  It's the first time in 17 years that we've spent a whole week apart.  I've decided I don't like it very much.  Anyway, he'll be home tonight and house will look like a bomb went off, but I'm sooooo looking forward to him being home.

Anyhoo, onto my card for today.  As part of my resolution to try and make cards that aren't just square, today I have made a 4-drawer easel card.  Ok, it is still square, but it does have a little more to offer.  I was amazed and just how easy this was.  I found a tutorial on-line and away I went.  I used Core'dinations paper to make the little drawers and base and MME Lost & Found Blush papers.  I used little resin roses for the drawer 'knobs'.  The image is LOTV Never too old for a hug, coloured with copics and crystal art glitter on the wings and cut out with a Nellie multi-frame and Spellbinder scalloped circle.  The flowers, lace and seam binding are all from Wild Orchid.  The hat pins are mine.  A couple of little Woodware punched butterflies and sentiment and it's all done.  Now I just have decide who to give it to and find four very small gifts to put in the drawers!!


I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

  10. Caz, your beautifully colored LOTV hugging fairy looks fabulous on this 4-drawer easel birthday card. Your choice of sentiment is perfect for leading the recipient to check those drawers for some of those "delightful surprises." So glad to see your entry at the Crafts and Me Stamps' digi team's Pearls and Roses challenge. Hugz, ~ Rose

  14. Beautiful Caz...and it's certainly more of a gift with the extra little boxes, very, very pretty.

    My hubby started going on photography holidays about 3 years ago, and it does feel really strange when he's not here, but he loves it (whereas I know I would be bored to tears!)Hope your hubby has had a lovely time away.

    Hugs Elaine xx
