DH is at a Cardinal's baseball game today, so I have some 'me' time.
Thought I'd drag out the Copics and color a bit!
I saw a challenge for a monochromatic project yesterday, while perusing Facebook, and decided to give it a try. It's a Bestie's Challenge, and you can find it HERE. Then I went to Etsy, and found this Sherri Baldy 'Messy Bessy' image HERE. Just had to 'adopt' her....lol.
Once she was all finished, and I was ready to assembe the card, I realized that it was not all going to fit. Hmmm......what to do, what to do? Read on!
I simply took my craft knife and 'raised' up her bow! It not only gave the card a bit of a 3-dimensional touch, it let the pieces all fit together beautifully!
Mistakes = creative opportunities, right?
My first box of Scrap Town Lady goodies arrived yesterday, and OH MY, OH MY, what beautiful papers it contained! This pad is 'Renew' from Authentique and you can purchase it HERE. When making my card, I couldn't figure out what sentiment to use on this sweetie. With the ladybug, I felt it should be a bit nature-ish, but nothing was jumping out at me. I turned over the pad of 'Renew', and VOILA! On the back cover, was this perfect sentiment, frame and all. I only had to cut it out and mount it. Pretty cool, don't you think?
Hope you are having a great week, and...
that the weekend brings you oodles of crafty time!
Thanks for dropping by today,
