This is going to be a long post. Grab a Diet Coke or your warm beverage of choice and settle in!
First, I'm competing in the Brownie Scraps Facebook Faceoff. Our first challenge was Novel or Notes (inspired by Jason Mraz songs). I chose the Jason Mraz song Bella Luna as my inspiration. I have to admit that I hadn't heard of Jason Mraz before this challenge :) Here's my kit preview:
If you like what you see, I would love it if you would vote for me on Facebook. You'll need to "Like" Brownie Scraps and then "Like" my preview.
We were also challenged to make a freebie cluster to give away with our kit. Here's my freebie preview:
You can download the freebie from the Brownie Scraps gallery. I made a layout using my kit:
For my cardmaking friends and followers, it's time for a new challenge at The Latte Lounge. This time I tried to choose something easy - animals. Any kind of animal in any way on your card or project!
Here's my first card. I was inspired by Stacie's tutorial challenge to try another tutorial. This is a T-slide card. The directions were excellent. I've been wanting to use The Stamping Boutique's Pocket Patooties. This one is Pocket Patootie Frog - isn't he cute! I colored him with Copics. The sticker inside says "You're the Best." The paper and brads are from my stash.
Peanut made a card for this challenge. She chose the Pocket Patootie Monkey. She got new markers today - there were many shades of red. Her favorite colors are "dark red" and "dark blue." She's really into bugs right now, so I got her some puffy ladybug stickers, which she really loved. The paper is JLJ Designs.
Peanut would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Stitchy's Kids March Challenge - Kid's Choice
I have one more card using Pocket Patootie Monkey. I colored him using Copics and used the same tutorial.
