Here's the sketch from Miss Edna.....
Funny, how I refer to her as Miss Edna. I have known
two other Ednas in my life and both were called Miss Edna...
no disrespect for Edna Morrisedie, it's just a habit. Ok...that's done...respectfully so!!!!
My card reflects the sketch...some what.....
you be the judge.
Stamps are from WMS Teeny Trees
Paper is from a secret sister..it came embossed and cut...how nice, and white and kraft. They match the inks below.
Ink is Soft Suede, Sage Shadow, and Bordering Blue, oh and a bit of black for the sentiment.
Tools, of course were the cuttlebug to cut out the Spellbinders...the tiniest ones on the front and a medium one on the inside that read:
"Knowing you is like growing hugs on trees."
I used my mini Janome to sew the edge around the card base after I stamped the sentiment. You know me - it couldn't be symmetrical.
I tried a little some thing different with PICNIK in Picasa for the inside of my card......it 'leaks' the ink away from the focal point...cool, very cool.
Just click to enlarge on the pic.
Here's a shot of the inside:
My hug card goes with Fred Small's Hug song that you can
see at the end of my post.....but caution ...it will stick in your
brain like cement!
Card Cupids - Multiple layers
Dream Valley - Stamp something
Paper Sundaes - Let's get sentimental
Fred Small - The Hug Song lyrics
I want a hug when we say hello
I want a hug when it's time to go
I want a hug 'cause I want you to konw
I'm awfully fond of you.
I want a hug--what a wonderful feeling
I want a hug--to feel you squeezing
I want a hug--it certainly seems like
The natural thing to do!
When I was a little bitty baby child, my momma used to hold me tight
My daddy used to come and pick me up when I got scared at night
The years have passed, I've grown so fast, and mostly I feel strong
But timid or bold, I'm never too old to sing this cozy song.
Now some folks don't like hugging--they think they're too tough
I bet they'd be a whole lot friendlier if they were just hugged enough
When you hug the ones who love you, an amazing thing you learn
When you give a hug, you just can't help but get one in return!
Sometimes grownups are grouchy and they put the blame on you
Sometimes you make just a little mistake though you did the best you could do
Sometimes love is everywhere and it's a beautiful day
And every time is the perfect time to open your arms and say:
