I am pretty sure you are wondering why this post is entitled College Memories but the card is of a wolf howling at the moon. I went to the University of New Mexico and our mascot is a Lobo (a type of wolf). I always think of my college days when I see a wolf - strange but true.
This week's mission at the Haunted Design House is to Case one of the very talented design team members (HDH131). When I saw that was the theme of the week, I was hoping they were going to go easy on us - they had other ideas! All the work was really detailed and very artistic - art gallery kind of stuff - not just level 10 - but level 11+. Since the rules actually suggested you could copy everything, I thought I might purchase Teri's Black Pearl digi (from her Digi Store Delicious Doodles Shop) and attempt to case her card; however, once I got into her digi store, I saw this wolf image and I had to have it. I popped up a couple of the snowy branches and the wolf since Teri did that on her card, and I added a computer generated sentiment that seemed to go with the image. I think I could do more cards with this image about nature and with some poetry - can't wait to make more. Sue Worthington (IrishGreenSue on SCS) sent me the silver swirls and snowflakes in a RAK that arrived just yesterday (I thought the swirls kind of had the same effect as mermaid tail on Teri's card), so I placed them on the card. Lastly, I addded a black feather since Teri's card also had one.
Fun card. I am giving it to a friend at work who seriously wants to scream right now (she is having some pretty major life struggles). I know this will make her laugh.
Hugs to all!
