With the help of my fellow Guildys, we were able to flush out the traitor in the Guild Hall - a new house gnome named Krunkle. It appears I will have to vet new additions to the Guild Hall more thoroughly. Once he had been removed and was no longer sending messages to the evil wizard, Black Soot-Ture, we were able to get in touch with the ragdoll clan who had sent us the hidden message in the stitchy pig, and fell the nefarious fiend effectively saving the Festival of Love. With the holiday no longer in peril, everyone was able to enjoy the day of love, exchanging Valentines and mushy sentiments.
I created this set of card to distribute to the girls in my office, cutting the base for them out using the Art Philosophy cartridge. I made a little envelope for each one using the hearts from the Unity “Loads of Love” set and left them on the girls’ desks along with a little chocolate :)
The sheep was cut using the Create-a-Critter cartridge and embossed with a swirly embossing folder and my Cuttlebug. I stamped the banner using the Lawn Fawn “Bannerific” set. The sentiment is from the Unity “Love Ewe” itty bitty. (Hooray for puns).
On the inside I stamped the sentiment and the adorable sheep using the There She Goes “Poultry in Motion” set. The Happy Valentine’s is from the Lawn Fawn “My Silly Valentine” set. It is actually the only stamp I have that says Happy Valentine’s Day, so you will see it inside all these cards.
This sheep card will be herded into the following challenges:
Craft Your Passions Challenge #200 (challenge #158: Adorable Animals)
Next I cut this cute owl out using Create-a-Critter 2. The banner is again stamped with “Bannerific”. The sentiment is from the Unity “You Always” itty bitty.
On the inside I stamped an owl using the Lawn Fawn “Critters in the Forest” set. The top sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn mini “You’re a Hoot” set.
This owl will fly into the following challenges:
The bunny for this card was cut using Create-a-Critter 2 again. Another banner stamped and cut out using “Bannerific” and a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn “My Silly Valentine” set finished off this punny front.
The inside sentiment was stamped using the There She Goes “Poultry in Motion” set. The little bunny on the bottom was from the “My Silly Valentine” set.
This rabbit will hop into the following challenges:
The snake on this card was cut using Create-a-Critter. He actually has a birthday hat on, but I trimmed that part off, since it really wasn’t applicable to this card. Another banner again from “Bannerific” was stamped with a couple sentiments from the There She Goes “Zoo-Pendous” set.On the inside I stamped the snake from the “Zoo-Pendous” set and “hi” using a Unity stamp.
This reptile will slither into the following challenge:
Next up was this tree that I cut using Create-a-Critter 2. It’s actually supposed to have snow on it, but I just left that layer off and instead cut some hearts to make it more Valentines-y, earning myself +88 transmogrification XP points. The sentiment was stamped on a banner from “Bannerific” using the Lawn Fawn “Critters in the Forest” set.On the inside I stamped the sentiment using a Unity stamp and added the pine tree on the side with the “Critters in the Forest” set.
This tree will lose its needles in the following challenges:
The sentiment on the inside is from the Unity “Nicest Place to Be” itty bitty. The apples on the bottom are also from the Lawn Fawn “My Silly Valentine” set.
This apple will roll into the following challenge:
On the last card I cut the banana using the Create-a-Critter cartridge and embossed him with the swiss dots folder. The sentiment was stamped using the “My Silly Valentine” set and it baaaaaarely fit on that banner, which is the largest one in the “Bannerific” set.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the Lawn Fawn “Love ‘n Breakfast” and “Smitty’s ABCs” sets. The banana on the bottom was also from “My Silly Valentine”.
This banana will apeel to the following challenge:
I am glad we were able to save the Festival of Love and rid the Guild Hall of its traitor. [QUEST COMPLETE]. Hopefully we will be able to have a few days rest until the realm once again needed saving….but I doubt it.
