This is a Hug!

Greetings Dies R Us Friends! Happy Friday.

This week's inspirational DT card for Dies R Us is another request by my caring Husband for his mentor who is battling serious health issues. He wanted something simple for a male without  a lot of pomp & fluff. So this is what I put together for him. I think the image and sentiment really says everything that my Husband wants to say.

Dies used include:

I used a sweet image from Stamp Art Design called 'Little Bear this is a Hug' and coloured it with Copics. I framed it with the Spellbinders Modern Stationary die and stitched around it. Here is a closer look at the image.

I offset this image with the Doohickey Swirl to add some focus to other parts of the card. I added some twine & rhinestones to finish off my card. Here is a close up of the  Doohickey Swirl die.

A new challenge is underway over at the Challenge Blog. Challenge #13 is a 'Thankful' challenge. So think about Thanksgiving, Thankful, Give Thanks, Thank You. Be sure to check it out as there is some exceptional DT creations from the talented Team A. To be in the running for the $10 voucher at the Dies R Us store simply use a die in your challenge entry.

Please come back next week for more wonderful inspiration from all of the very talented ladies on the  Dies R Us team. Until next week, happy crafting!
