Ta Tara!

September 9, 2015 at 9:30 am 14 comments

Sometimes it’s nice to bring a smile to people.

Some just need one.

This is a mini blog hop in aid of making Tara (the owner of Make The Day Special Stamp Store and our fearless leader) and her ‘superimportanteventhoughhe’salwaysbehindthescenes’ other half Rick.

Kate thought it would be a great idea to say thanks for all their hard work and so ‘Ta Tara’ (a great colloquialism in various parts of England that means Thanks) is just the Design Team all posting something especially for them.

Kate chose the theme’ food’ as Rick and Tara are both super foodies and that caused us all a little head scratching. I don’t have many food themed sets and started one idea, then gave up and subsequently had the random thought of olive curtains drawn aside to show the two martini glass stars (aka Tara and Rick).

Yes, it’s tenuous.

Agreed, it’s totally out there.

Is it rather stupid? You be the judge…

Even the sentiment was a stretch… I used these sets

You can see the olive image and ‘olives’ sentiment that I shortened. The Hugs is obvious on the first set and I just trimmed out an extra u and s from the hugs to make the sentiment.

This hop is from all of us (olive us!) and we want Tara to know that we really appreciate her and all she does. Her customer service is always super speedy, and if you knew even half of the work she puts in to the business, you’d know how much she deserves to succeed.

A strange olive curtain toast to you both. May you go from strength to strength.

You came hopefully by way of the superb Kate and you can now hop over to the sublime Sarah. If you want to go from the beginning, then why not start back at the MTDSSS and go from there!

    Keren, as always, your creativity just blows me away! I have no idea how you come up with stuff, but whenever you share something, it certainly astonishes me. You are amazing girl, and your card rocks! ❤

    Keren, when I saw the sneak peak with the olives and the idea of curtains, I knew something awesome is going to come out. And as Julia said, it really is amazing! My kindest regards to you, Tara, Rick and the great DT!

    Super fun and unique card!! I agree that Make the Day Special are brilliant! I buy a lot from them

    Great Jehosaphat! No one but you could draw this out of their imagination and make it work. This has to be the most inventive Thank You card I’ve ever seen. The fact that you fussy cut all those elements including the “us”, knocks me out. You must have the patience of a saint (something I greatly admire, since I have none). Another amazing card from the mind of Keren. LOVE IT!

    You are so creative Keren, love those olive curtains they look so appetising and I don’t even like olives!!! This card is perfect for Tara and Rick xx

    Genius (slightly deranged but genius nonetheless)! I love this, Keren and want to go and make an olive themed card 🙂


  • 11. craftytreen  |  September 10, 2015 at 1:24 am
