And The Fox says "Thanks a Million!"

by Joanne James11. May 2014 20:42

Today I have a special blog post for you - a guest blogger, none other than my 8 year old daughter! As I was eating my breakfast and minding my own business one day, she was reading over my shoulder and fell in love with the card featured - this fabulous card featuring the fox from the Life in The Forest set, by the talented Erica Cerwin.  She promptly announced she just HAD to copy the card and as Rebecca has always fancied the idea of writing her own blog, I asked if she would like to write the blog post for it and she jumped at the chance! So here is her CASE of Erica's card and a few words about how and why she made it:

"I really liked this card when I saw it and decided it would make a perfect card for my singing teacher, to say thank you for her help in enabling me to get a distinction in my recent grade one singing exam. I stamped lots of foxes on the card base, and coloured in the white bits with a chalk marker. I love how you can see them through the vellum. I then stamped another fox and cut him out and stuck him on the front behind the grass, which I cut with fringe scissors. I made the banner with 'You're one in a million' but added a row of gold sequins to mine too, for extra sparkle. I also stamped a fox on the card envelope and coloured him in with a Cajun Craze marker pen. my singing teacher loved her card!"

I hope you like Rebecca's card - normal blog service resumes tomorrow! until then, happy stampin'!

Well done Rebecca. That is a fabulous card and I am not at all surprised that your music teacher loved it. You will be running classes for Mum before very long

Rebecca  - your card is fabulous. Your music teacher was so lucky to get such an original thank you.  I really liked the card and you made it so perfectly - I love foxes.

Please will you help me design and make a card this weekend when I see you. I can't wait - it will be so different from me helping you - I hope you'll have lots of patience with me if I do something wrong!

I think you should take our next card club as I think we could all learn a lot from you and Mum could use your help as sometimes we're a bit slow!

Well done Rebecca.  You certainly have the same paper crafting skills as your mum.  I love the way the little foxes are peeping through the velum.   Also well done on your singing exam result !  ps. baby Evan now has two teeth !!
