Saying Hi & A Fun Giveaway!

Hi everyone! Before we get to today's card I have a fun giveaway to share. You may have heard of CSN stores, they sell literally everything from Bed Sets to holiday decorations to shoes and handbags!

CSN are giving me a $45 gift voucher for one lucky reader! Now, you must be based in the USA or Canada to receive this gift, I'll have to come up with something special for my downunder friends! If you're in America or Canada, please leave a comment (make sure to leave an email address I can contact you on) and one lucky winner will win $45 to spend - easy as that!

Now, onto today's card...
I've had this one in the archives for awhile now - this was my Dad's Father's Day card this year (Father's Day is in September in NZ) I paper pieced the little dudes overalls, the rest of the image was coloured with watercolour crayons. The papers are from the Basic Grey Granola pack. I added some fun cross stitched detail with my piercing took and some linen thread.

Inside I used a simple Verve sentiment and added a strip of the fun paper. This was a bit of a different card for a Dad, but mine loved it! Don't forget to leave a comment for the giveaway if you're in the US or Canada!

  3. Hi Sarah. As always, your work is fantastic. I've been meaning to comment on a post you made awhile back, with all the beautiful fabrics. Did you see that SU! are releasing fabrics in the States?! I immediately thought of you, and I hope that they eventually make it to NZ. I'm sure you would come up with some fantastic sewing projects to go with your fantastic papercrafting projects! Have a great day.
