Some Sheep and Some Advice
The current (ends by tomorrow) challenge at The Amazing Octopode Factory (TOFF#48) is Animals. My only Octopode Animal image is the little Sheep from Bo Peep so guess what animal I chose!
These sheep have had a really bad hair day - poor little things! I combined them with the Octopode Fence which I printed out on the recycled backing from some K&Co accents. I distressed the backing with an emery board because it was slick and I wanted my printer ink to stick to it. I colored by sheep bodies with Copics and popped them up around the fence. There has been a lot of sheep counting for my family these days - we either can't go to sleep or we crash and can barely wake up. Pop seems to be doing a bit better - they let him out of ICU yesterday. Hopefully it will be onto rehab today.
My cardstock is all SU! You can enter the challenge with any animal from any company but you will have to do it today or super early in the morning because I was running late on this one.
The Haunted Design House Challenge is all about teeth. The title of the challenge is Long in the Tooth (HDH134).
I love this cute little KiniArt monster (available at the Can You Digi It? store) and it has one super long tooth! I colored it with Copics, and then covered the whole monster in Rock Candy Stickles. My dp is from DCWV's Safari Pack and the cardstock is from Michaels.
The sentiment is one that I am living by these days. Our division manager gave some of us this advice awhile back when we were trying to tackle a particularily large task, and we are still trying to eat that elephant! I think I may have about 20% of it eaten - LOL!
Wishing you all sheep-free nights and elephant-free days! Hugz!!!!
