Pink Dream........A Gift For My Pink Loving Friend.....

There is a challenge over at Everybody Art Challenge but this time it is not to make a card, it is to make anything but a card...... there is an amazing prize for the winning entry, Lelo Stamps, have you seen them they are scrummy......even if you don't give it a go, take a look at the design team creations they are just wonderful....and will really inspire you to go and create something...

My wonderful friend Moni is one of the design team members this is how i discovered this challenge site, and i decided to give this one a go.... i knew exactly what i wanted to make, it is another gift to make a friend smile..... her son has gone on a skiing holiday this last week and she's been a little poorly...like so many suffering with colds and flu....so i thought i would cheer her up with this pink dream, her favourite colour..

I decided on a plaque, and it is ****PINK**** i know, but i actually like the way this one turned out... I'd got these hangers last year in the summer from Crafty Individuals and still haven't used them till now, i thought they'd be a great way of hanging a plaque, i took a 12" x 4" piece of hard board and i covered it with Basic Grey Sugared pink designer paper, then i used Basic Grey Bittersweet which is just the yummiest designer paper i have seen, a Martha Stewart Punch (another gift from hubby...) to punch down the sides of three sheets of Bittersweet then layered them on top of each other for the center panel.., I'm a Basic Grey freak, i love to buy every single line that comes out and i always have to buy the brads then the Bazzill that matches, Basic Grey is a really good basic to have in your stash...if you're stuck and don't know which brand to use then turn to Basic Grey, SU, or October Afternoon you won't go far wrong.....anyway back to the plaque, i coloured a stamped image of an oven, it's a retired SU oven my darling hubby got me last year and i thought the WOJ Willow With Cookies(she is so cute you can buy her here) would go perfectly with this oven and i think she did...what do you think?, i finished off with the Magnolia tea towel... all of the images i coloured using Prisma Pencils and Sansodor, i then went over parts of the images with H2o's to give them a little sparkle... Then there are the embellies....ooooooh where do i start, the lace which is threaded through the buttons and attached to the hanger is from Hobby Craft, the buttons and Flowers were from my lovely Friend Claudia, she always sends me the most wonderful embellishments, the brads are of course Basic Grey and the tickets which i just love are Tim Holtz and the wax stamp which i only just got is 7 Gypsies....i added a little Frosted lace Stickles to finish off...

Before i go, i wanted to let you know that it was my Blog Anniversary at the beginning of January, and I've just about hit 10,000 hits so this month i have so really yummy Blog Candy to give away and just to wet your appetite Mark ( my darling hubby ) got a pack of Nestabilities (just a single pack) to add to the candy so keep an eye out towards the end of the month....

Ingredients: DP Basic Grey Sugared & Bittersweet ~ Brads Basic Grey Bittersweet ~ Stamps WOJ, SU & Magnolia ~ Prisma Pencils, Sansodor, Stumps ~ Tim Holtz Tickets ~ Flower & Buttons From My Lovely Friend Claudia ~ Wax Stamp 7 Gypsies ~ H2o's ~ Lace & Ribbon From Stash ~ Hangers Crafty Individuals ~ Stickles Frosted Lace....... I think that's it....LOL
