Well, even tho this is a Thursday, technically my weekend is here! The boys are off tomorrow for Good Friday and again on Monday, ummm, just cuz.......lol. And my marathon cooking will start sometime tomorrow. I made a grocery run today to pick up a few things......I'm just hoping the next few days can be relatively drama free!!
Not a lot to talk about today so I will getcha right up to speed with the projects :):)
First up is the challenge at Lily Bee. This is my very first time joining them :) The challenge is to create a LO based on a grid. Heyyyyyyyyy I can do that!!! I LOVE working with grids!! And at first I wasn't so sure about this LO........but the more I look at it the more I like it. Kinda different from what I normally do.......or in other words it doesn't burn your retinas from the bright color.....lol. You ahve to use at least one itty bitty Lily Bee product on yhour LO........so I dug and dug and found a series of die cuts fom their Christmas Town collection. So......I chopped em up, and yeah it hurt me to do it.......lol. I just closed my eyes and chopped! I have had them long enough and not used them....so I just did it.!!!
This is what I came up with....
I placed a one in front of the circle embellie to mimic a 10.......as in ten little toes and ten little fingers.......and I did that even before I found out about this weeks challenge (to use a number on your LO) at The Paper Variety!!!
It's also loosely based on this sketch at Get Your Sketch On.
And am also entering this at CRAFT challenge 99 this week, where the challegne is to use flowers on your project.
I think if I were to go back and change anything I might shabby it up some with some white paint splotches....but for now I'm ok with it :)
Okie Dokie........Its been a while since I had a card to share with you. I whipped this one up for Claudia and Company's clean and simple challenge. It's really corny and I'm thinking of sending it to my mom for Mother's day. She and I aren't close, but she is still my mom........and I'm not wearing my heart on my sleeve here so if she doesn't like it it's fine......lol.
You were warned it was corny.......lol. Pebbles Treehouse Collection Patterned papers and AC cardstock.......the little toaster is also by American Crafts and is felt and ohhh so cute!! And a buck for a pack of 6 little feltie embellies like this at Big Lots right now!!!!! I also used a Pebbles sticker, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type and punched the scalloped circle with my brand new BELOVED scallop punch that I finally found in stock someplace!!!!
I also took the time to finish the inside.....sorta :)
And there ya go!! I'm gonna be up a while tonight so I am gonna see what I can find to create :) Jacob is on a trip with his NJROTC unit and won't be home til around midnight. No matter how old they get they are still our babies :)
Have a great night and thanks for dropping in!
