SOS277: gobble til ya wobble

if you've guessed that we'd like to see thanksgiving cards at shopping our stash this week, then you're absolutely right. "but what if,(...you might be thinking...) "i don't send thanksgiving cards, or i do send them, but i'm canadian so i sent them two weeks ago when it was actually thanksgiving for me?" well then, a general thank-you card will be absolutely awesome. in fact, that's what i've made. see?

tiny stickers: funny sticker world and my little friends; patterned paper: prima, basic grey, my mind's eye, echo park; large and small journal cards: simple stories; brads: october afternoon; brackers: oriental trading; fabric flower sticker: american crafts; washi: freckled fawn, love my tapes; alphabet stamps: freckled fawn (colored with prismacolour pencils); ink: ranger archival and colorbox chalk; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape

i'm kind of pleased with this one (she said, modestly) because not only have i used up loads of older stash, i've actually solved a problem that's been bugging me for a while. i love stickers, especially teeny kawaii cute stickers, but i never quite know what to do with them. so they accumulate. but this time i not only used the bear, the bunny and the cloud, i think i sort of figured out how to make them the stars of the card. so you'll definitely be seeing more little "sticker scenes" i think. (woohoo, eh?!)


i used both halves of the fusion challenge, or at least, i was inspired by both halves. i've clearly used the sketch, and in quite a straightforward way. as for the primary colors, i started out with the intention of using yellow, red and blue... but somehow i wound up with mustard, fuchsia and aqua. so there you go. i've used one-and-a-half halves of the fusion challenge. kinda. 


do pop over to SOS to see what the dt have done... it's worth the trip, i promise! ♥
