Cash for Comments!

CR1803 You have all heard about the cash for questions scandal ... well I am about to offer cash for comments!

I have been wracking my tiny brain all day in an attempt to work out what I could do to support Comic Relief ... and this is what I came up with!

Firstly I made a tag ... I just love playing with Lord Tim of Holtz's Distress Stains and the new Adirondack Colorwash sprays ... I say playing ... I just kind of slapped them all on a tag and this is what I ended up with! You know Tim ... the man that can turn Nobby's Nuts into solid Gold while painting a light covering of frost on every blade of grass around the world in one night with just a craft sheet and a glass vial.

All the stamps you can see are THE Wendy Vecchi and the red nose ... Do ya like it??? Huh??? Do ya??? Well I made that ... when I say made ... I did of course just colour in a hole from a standard hole punch ... obviously it is not a hole ...CR11803 it is the waste from the hole ... they must have a name ... I just don't know what it is! Oh and I added a touch of white Sharpie Marker to make it look dimensional!

Anyways ... For every blog comment you guys make between now and Midnight today ... I will donate 0.20p to www.comicrelief.co.uk ... Now I am sadly not a millionaire ... so just one comment per person please!

I am off ... to slap a few more tags with some colour ... all you need to do is get commenting :0)

Laters!

Gorgeous tag, so colourful, great idea and I had to laugh at Tim all dressed up in his crown, he looks the bees knees:0) xxx

Caroline Hallett said...

great tag - love what you have done and love also that you are going to give the cash to comic relief. Have to say Timmy with his crown really made me laugh out loud - so thank you for that... sorry to waffle on, but I am trying to get my full 20p worth...

misteejay said...

Great tag and a very worthy cause - we managed to raise £340 this week at work by just having a bit of fun.

The visit from "Tim" all bedecked in his crown made it even better.

Ther, that's my 20p worth....
