Lacy Sunshines Eleanor and Pickles through the years blog hop


Late one night in June of 2012, Heather Valentin was on the phone with her best friend and was drawing, like many of us do when talking on the phone, and the result, the first Eleanor and Pickles image – Eleanor and Pickles Book of Spells. The first image of Eleanor by herself, was Eleanor Bookworm.

Now, 3 years later, Eleanor and Pickles make up the largest category of images created by Heather Valentin for Lacy Sunshine Stamps. Eleanor and Pickles along with various other character friends, like Tilly the dinosaur, have had many adventures over the past 3 years and Heather continues to draw new images of these delightful characters.

Over the next 2 days, the Lacy Sunshine DT gals will be celebrating Eleanor and Pickles 3rd Anniversary/Birthday with our Through The Years Blog Hop. Please come hop along with us to win some “Pickletastic” prizes and see some Heather’s favorite Eleanor and Pickles images. You can visit Lacy Sunshine Shoppe to view the entire range of images available for purchase.

The hop begins here at Lacy Sunshine Challenge blog and then follows the order below. Make sure you stop at every blog on the hop and leave a comment. Don’t forget to leave a comment here too. Our prizes will be announced along with our New Challenge post on June 21st. Hope you enjoy the hop!!

I needed to make an 18th birthday card for my daughter Freya and one for her best friend Olivia. I have been dying to use the new Twiggy and Toots Digi Download

My DT card for Digi Choosday


Its time for our new challenge over at Digi Choosday

 
Our theme for you this week is

Fathers Day/Male card

We would love you to hop over and join in so please head over to the challenge blog HERE to enter your creations

I decided to make a shaped card this week using Polkadoodles Winston Digi Download, this image is called Gone Fishing and is available, in outline only, singly in the Digi Download store HERE
On the CD and in the download there is also a coloured version which is what I have used here

The spotty kraft paper, buttons, Gone Fishing sign and sentiment are also from the Winston digi download/CD, I used Gathered Twigs distress ink around the edges of the paper

I think Winston is perfect for male cards

I used my Go Kreate dies to cut the image and brown card to match the base card and added brown gingham ribbon along the centre of the card and tied a knot rather than a bow
