Hope you had a fun St. Patrick's Day! I had to track down green shirts for the boys because Parker was very concerned that he would get "pinched" in school! Apparently a Leprauchan came in and made a HUGE mess in the 1st grade room... he was very concerned about it and then he told me when we got home that maybe the Leprauchan came into our basement and made the big mess in his and Kaiden's toy room. (Points for him on creativity!)
So it's challenge Wednesday with the ATS challenge and SUINK Whachadoin' Wednesday challenges--- but can we pretend it's Whachadoin Friday?? I really am ready to take the rest of the week off with the 70 degree weather we had today. I left a little early from work and enjoyed the beautiful day!
I whipped together a couple of cards tonight while I painfully watched American Idol. (Skip this paragraph if you don't watch AI!) Wow--- this was not a great season for a "country" night! As much as I luv my pick, Adam (the goth theatrical kid with the black fingernails and better make-up skills then me!), his "rendition" of Ring of Fire, scared the holy heck out of me!! That was just odd dawg! There were a couple that surprised me--- mainly Anoop and Kris (he's a real cutie!), but my top three picks all were less than I expected. Oh well-- I still love that show!
Okay, on to the cards... my first is for All That Scraps--- today's challenge is to use RIBBON, lots and lots of ribbon. I've got 5 on my card--- I didn't want to go too tacky, so I stopped myself at five. I loved the muted greens and pinks for this card. I picked up a pack of Bazzill Swiss Dots cardstock (LUV the texture on there!) and then I airbrushed the background behind my little bunny gal. (YG93 is the color back there!) I found a DSP that matched the colors pretty closely, so I thought it would be fun to paper piece her shirt and a few eggs. I used the egg from the "Hunny Bunny" set and the bunny gal from the "Spring Things" Gingersnap set from C.C. Designs. The sentiment is from Amy R Stamps, "Friends Sentiments". (Yep, that's three stamp sets in one card... how can you resist these sets, they're just too cute!) I don't know if you can see it, but I also used the eyelet border punch on here from Stampin' Up... it came in the mail last week and I love how it looks!
Stop by the ATS Blog to check out the rest of the cards-- they should be posted by late morning!
This next card is for Whachadoin' Wednesday over at the SUINK blog. HOWEVER, let me disclaim that this is NOT for this weeks challenge. I did what Suzanne did a couple of weeks ago and looked at the wrong challenge--- so SHHH... Maybe you can tell what the challenge will be next week by checking out my card!!
The ACTUAL challenge this week is to use SPRING COLORS on your card (Just pretend the card above is for that challenge!) (hee-hee!)
So despite my faux-pas-- here is my card... I picked up a pack of "Daydreamer" paper from K&Co that had these little bicycles on it (both sides of the paper has bikes on it, so how perfect is that for this stamp!) The stamp is another of the images in the "Let's Play" set. It's my favorite, especially since I have two little bike riders that are REALLY excited about the recent weather improvement so that they could ride their own bikes outside!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Wednesday!
A Little Thank You
