Some Sunday Creations
I love this Mike Eustis Image. Mike is a new artist at Can You Digi It?, and I have been checking out his work all over the web - what talent that man has! I had seen this image before, and I had totally fallen in love with it. I popped over to Squigglefly and purchased it this morning. I used a page out of an old cookbook I purchased for 50 cents at a thrift store for the side panel. You can barely see my paper piercing on this one. It is on the sentiment - I really call it paper pecking as it looks like a little chick has attacked it rather than organized paper piercing. We have chickens, and if one was helping me in the kitchen it would more likely be pecking my paper than stirring my brownies! LOL! I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Squigglefly Paper Piercing - SFC2912
Pile It On - PIO#31 Cute
DYSU#82 For a Friend
This is my first time entering a Squigglefly or Do You Stack Up challenge - fun, fun, fun!
Do you ever have days (or weeks) where it seems you can't measure, cut, color, or layout anything right? I am having one of those weeks! I made this altered chipboard crown for my youngest DD and then realized after I took the picture that one of the gems wasn't centered. I peeled it off and redid it, but I am not going to do another picture as my kitchen counter now has lunch on it! My daughter saw this crown at Hobby Lobby yesterday and asked me alter it to match an Initial I had done for her a few months ago. The flower is made out of old dictionary pages with gold beads on them.
I am entering this creation in the Crafting When We Can Challenge #23 Monochrome. They are sponsored this week by Fresh Brewed which I adore but I couldn't think of a way to work in one of their images on this crown!
This card is for the FS286 Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers (the featured stampers i s Buzsy - Monika Davis), for the Fresh Brewed Inspiration Challenge, and for Phindy's Friday Challenge #114 which is to use buttons.
I did this card for the FS challenge as well. Click HERE to see Monika's Card I cased.
Hugz to all!
