Seeing Spots


It's challenge day at 7 Kids College Fund and we are
~ Seeing Spots ~

I've made a Tag card after seeing my friend Tracy's.  You can find a tutorial HERE, however I only used the instructions as a general guideline as my dimensions and closure are much different.  I also made mine into a gift card holder.


My image is Ladybug Tilda which was sent to me by my friend Tracy (thanks girlie!!) and the DP is from Imaginisce.  I used just the end bits of a Labels 8 nestie to create the closure tab and for the sentiment.  I folded the corner and held it in place with a pearl.  Both the pearl and ribbon were colored with Copic (BG15) to match the paper.  This turned out to be an extremely heavy card with all the layers inside and out.  

I'm sorry to be so brief, but the kids and I have all caught the flu and I just generally feel horrible.  Nathan is the SWEETEST child on the planet when he's sick.  He's quiet, wants to cuddle and tells you that he loves you all day long!!  {xoxox}  Brookie however is a mad woman and just CRIES all day long and tells you that she's just so sad!!  {It's a combination of heartbreaking and annoying!! LOL}  

I also want to apologize for not visiting your blogs these past 2 weeks, I've had so much family stuff going on and now this...I'm sure I'll never get caught up but I hope to be by to visit you all real soon!!



Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Wendy

Hope you will all recover quickly. I've missed visiting you too - broadband was slowed to crawling for a week & is still a bit dicey at times but I''m trying to get round.
This sent me on a little journey - love the whole concept & think I shall be trying one of these too. I love your spotty paper & the contrast with that white based pattern & the doily. That little string of pearls for the embellishing of the closure is so pretty too & I like the folded over corner secured by another pearl.

What an adorable gift card holder! It's a gift in itself! I'm so sorry that you and the children are ill - but thankful it came AFTER Brooke's birthday. I do hope you all get well soon!
