Huggable - lo and a very happy mail :)

This lo is for the challenge over Artastic, which asked to be inspired by this painting of Frida Kahlo:

The added criteria were: a photo of me or family member with pet, shades of brown & orange, a single tropical flower.
I used this sketch from Scrap and Stamp:
And the stamps I used are the paws (rubber stamp), and the little puppy (digi stamp), which I did with paper piecing.

And it also goes for the following challenges:
distressing - #5 the stamp man
stitching, real or faux (mine is all faux) - #56 ssic; #37 stampin' royalty
autumn colors - #69 allsorts; creative card crew; #59 incy wincy; #61 pollycraft#22 wee memories; #121 a spoon full of sugar;
nature and/or green - #27 the shabby tea room
recycle (go green) - #28 workout scrapfit (the little envelope was made out of the back of an office writing pad)
buttons - practical scrappers
tag (plus a stamp, digi or rubber - I have them both) - stamping for the weekend

And now I want to share with you a very happy mail I got yesterday:

I got all these gorgeous things from my blogy great friend, Tesa!!! Here is her post about it (she hid the card and present box in her mom&dad's anniversary's post.. very clever...LOL). What she didn't post is about the most beautiful necklace she gave me!!! It's that silver flower you can see on the photo above. How on earth did she know that I'm a 'silver kind of gal'????
Let me tell you that all those goodies are even more beautiful IRL!
I'm so thrilled!!!! Thank you so much, girl friend. You've certainly made me very very happy! And as you can see, I already used the signo white pen.... LOL (but I thing I'll just hoard the rest of the goodies...)

Thanks for stopping by!

דף שהכנתי לאתגר של השראה  מציור - Artastic (תמונה של הציור - למעלה). היה צריך להשתמש בתמונה עם חיית מחמד, צבעי כתום וחום ולהוסיף פרח אקזוטי.
לפסים שמתחת התמונה לקחתי דפים מדוגמים וגלגלתי אותם. ראיתי את זה בכמה וכמה בלוגים לאחרונה, והרעיון מאד מצא חן בעיני.
גם המעטפות הטרנדיות  מוצאות חן בעיני, והכנתי לי מלאי שלהן, בעיצובים שונים. זה כל כך פשוט להכין אותן - שלושה קיפולים, עיצוב הסגירה, יישון עם דיו והוספת קישוטים (סיכות מתפצלות, תחרה, כפתורים וכיוצ"ב).
לחותמת הדיגיטלית של הכלב עשיתי פייפרפיסינג והוספתי גם חותמת גומי של טביעות כף רגל של כלב...
התמונה הנוספת היא של מתנה מדהימה שקיבלתי מהחברה הבלוגית שלי, Tesa, ששלחה לי את הכרטיס המדהים הזה, עם קופסת מתנה מטופלת יפהפיה ובתוכה סרטי תחרה מקסימים. וגולת הכותרת - שרשרת כסופה עם פרח. מדהים!

תודה שנכנסתן להסתכל!
צום קל (למי שצם) וגמר חתימה טובה לכולנו.
