Basket Sign

Happy weekend, peeps! How are you all doing this weekend? This past Thursday I got a last minute request from my SIL. It's basically for my niece, Maddy. Her school have this silent auction going on and each classroom made a goody basket and turned out they needed to make a sign for their basket. The auction was on Friday, and they found out on Thursday. How's that for last minute?

I love my niece and find it hard to say no. Besides, I am such a sucker for this kind of project. Nothing like working under pressure. Love the challenge. :) As soon as I got home from work, I started working on it as I have my 7pm, Flash Forward show to watch.

Here's what I made.

I found this cute Sassy Cheryl's digital stamp. I forgot to take picture to show the layers I created. There's actually 3 layers on the girl. I love the dimension it created. I colored each layer (with Prismacolor pencils), too, so if people peeked from the side, they can see all the layers are colored. I thought of only coloring the top layer, but my perfectionism won. It would have bugged me if I didn't colored it. LOL.

All in all, for last minute request, between searching for image and making the sign, it took me about an hour and I thought it came out fun looking. My SIL said many people at the school asked her about it. It's always fun to hear that others appreciate what we created.

Am getting ready to grab some breakfast. Hope you all have a great weekend. Hugs, Vera.

Sweet sign, Vera!! You do work well under pressure. I wouldn't be surprised if you get requests to do signs for the auction next year!
