Hey Girl

** 9/24/16 Front Porch Rocker at 613 Avenue Create! **
** 9/28/16 Winner at The Crafty Addicts! **

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! Even though Autumn is upon us, it hasn't cooled off much here at all... maybe a couple degrees, lol. I'm so ready for Fall I can hardly stand it! It's time for another fun challenge at Love to Scrap Challenge Blog and I'm excited to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #86 - Anything Goes! We know everyone loves this particular theme and we love indulging you! Our sponsors this time are Sparkle N Sprinkle, Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and Limited Runs Stamps, so come on over and play!

I chose to play with the very amusing 'Knitty Nora' from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps to create my friendship card. I stuck with a pretty simple design - I love fish tail banners so I hand-cut a fairly large one and a smaller one. I used a double stitched die to cut the focal image... you know how I love my stitched dies! The 'Hey Girl' flair came as a freebie in my Freckled Fawn order and I thought it really complimented this image. What a hoot! :D

I made Nora's earrings and necklace into rice pearls using Glossy Accents and a white gel pen. I also used Glossy Accents on her glasses lenses, lol! The only embellishments other than the flair are four pearl brads. Can you believe it... no bow on this card, lol!

I decorated the inside with leftover strips of patterned paper and gray cardstock used on the front, and stamped a sentiment. Loving how quirky this turned out! ;)

Proud to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock, Stampin' Up! Basic Gray cardstock, Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock, Echo Park Victorian Gardens 6x6 papers
  • Stamps: Dr. Digi's House of Stamps 'Knitty Nora' digital image, Stamp Camp Simple Sentiments 2 stamp set

  • Dies/Punches: Cottage Cutz Double Stitched Rectangle die

I hope you've found a little inspiration to play in our Anything Goes challenge this time! Be sure to check out all the fun stuff at Sparkle N Sprinkle, Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and Limited Runs Stamps! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!

Love your elegant design and funny image. We are so blessed of you joining our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday and hope you'll join us again in the new Challenge that started today. Leaving you with the encouragement from God's Word in 2 Timothy 2:10 which says, "For this reason I endure all things for the sake of those who are chosen, so that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus and with it eternal glory." Have a wonderful week.

Haven't seen a lot of knitting images, and I'm a knitter, so this is just up my alley!

Thanks for putting on your thinking cap and taking on our Name Game challenge at Cut it Up!
