Guest Designer for Her Craftiness

Today I have the honor of being the guest designer for my dear friend Lynne over at HerCraftiness.  I am so excited to share this cute card I made.   I am always looking for new and fun ideas to incorporate into my cards, and one day last week I found this great free svg file.  (I just wish I could remember where I found it).

It took several attempts of cutting out this frame before I finally got it.  I am using a well used cricut mat so I had problems with the mat ripping in places it was not supposed to cut.  Such is life right?

Once I got the mat cut, I glued it to the card stock card (6 x 6) and added the blue gems. This alone would have made a beautiful card, however, I wanted to add Ellie, this cute elephant.  Ellie is a paper piecing from Paper Piecings by Nikki.  You can find her web site here. Ellie is the elephant from the So Junglicious Pattern set.  What I love about paper piecing, as the designer, you can do so many different things with the pattern. It is all up to your imagination.  For instance, I did not want to glue on all her little toe nails, so I used a gel pen and colored them on.  I really think they they would look awesome when using some smooch.

I hope you like Ellie, I think she turned out so cute.  I chose the elephant from this set because Elephants never forget, and she signify that I will never forget my friend Lynne.

Here is Ellie . . .

Thanks Lynne for having me as your guest designer.
