~ Pink Valentine and A Hug-able Zebra ~
Hi! popping in quickly tonight to share a fun little project I created for a pink valentine... having in the back of my mind a munchkin that I love, but he's a boy, and pink won't do. So this one's for you all.
Well, first here's the front of the card, with tattered pink, shabby layers... chipboard, glitter, mica-flakes, tea-dyed tags and flowers, scrunchy ribbon, buttons n brads, stamps and ink.
And what triggered the card? Here's the story. My brother ditched a t-shirt into the trashcan next to me: a shirt with the text "Save Me" and it just screamed my name so I rescued the hapless item, and suddenly something just jumped at me to create a soft-y squashy huggable out of the image on the front -- a zebra. now, I know the zebras at the zoo smell kind of zoo-py LOL, but this one was too amiably adorable to resist. so I cut, and sewed and stuffed -
And made her a pink bow. my huggy little zebra!
Here's the set:
And before I have to hurry to bed, here's a lil something that I'm sharing in the etsy store... a fun little bundle of goodies, to create your own ltreats and such things...
... a brown paper sack, a french-style bakery baggie, two glassine mini-bags, a pink treat envelope, a shabby chipboard frame -- shimmery magic wand -- scrunchy tissue flower with leaves -- felt flower trim -- reusable trinket pins, mini clothespins, scrunched seam binding, silk ribbon, and ten tea-dyed tags... yumminess in a bundle.
