Hello there Friends
Today I thought I would share something which does not have a great deal of ink on it and is totally NOT my usual style! I know a certain someone who will like it as it is pink!
A friend of mine in work asked me if I would make a card for her to send to her great Nieces, twin girls, for their first birthday. Time to hit the panic button for sure! I don't do girlie girlie cards as a norm. I had to rack my brain for a few days and then decided to take a look on my Silhouette images. Unfortunatly, in the meantime, my friend pulled the date of requirement forward a few days. I had to get it ready for Friday. This was Thursday evening!!!!!!! I saw a fairy castle and then came across some princess images. And here is what happened...
I downloaded the princess designs and panic set in as I had a choice of dark haired or blonde princesses. Never mind, I shall ring her. No reply! No reply ALL Evening. Never mind, I will make 4 princesses (two of each) and just make the card with the princesses ready to place once I knew.
Next panic......when I downloaded the princesses onto the sheet, I could only get the blonde one on there. Ok! Let's just hope they are blonde. All princesses want to be blonde. You only have to look at Disney!
I printed and cut multiple copies so I could decoupage them, as well as the castle. I even printed and cut the banners which I had downloaded before and proceeded to fiddle faddle adding layers, rock candy stickles and diamantes where I could. The 1s were VOS chipboard and painted with pebeo paints and covered in the stickles.
I even printed the inside and placed VOS schparkly flutterby stickers on the inside and the envelope. I put it into a clear cellophane bag as I knew she would show it around the office if she liked it.
My friend didn't like it! She LOVED it and so did the parents of the little girls, who ARE blonde (phew!!) and it got pride of place on the mantlepiece. I have since been told it has got a frame to go in which was bought the next day, as soon as they feel it has been on the mantlepiece long enough! Phew!
There are a few Snippets as well as VOS and NBUS on there so I shall take it over to the Playground.
I likes a challenge - NOT!
Thanks for looking. I truly do love my Silhouette.
