Hiya everyone! How's your week going so far? The weathermen were wrong AGAIN and we ended up with only rain yesterday---so the kids went off to school, yay!! I love a quiet house, I get sooo much more work done, lol! I'm having some terrible back issues right now that aren't going away so I might be off to the dr's in a lil' bit--so this post will not be super long for ya!
Today is Whatchadoin' Wednesday over at Storage Units, Ink & More and its challenge #22 which is "Love is in the Air"! The challenge is to make a card for a loved one but the card CANNOT be standard size (4.5x5.5)---yeah, I didn't venture far from that cuz' my card is 4.5x4.5 square, but I like it, lol! I had to use this image from SUINK's new set "Sweet Things"--such a fun image to color in. This dp is from my new favorite DCWV "Sweet" stack--isnt' it gorgeous and my favorite colors together are blue & chocolate (blog header anyone)! I colored w/ Copics and then added Diamond Glaze to the chocolates & ribbon to make them pop! In the corners I added some Bella Baubles in cappucino--oh my how I lovee those baubles. I think I'll give this card to my sweet, sweet hubby!! If you wanna join in on the fun, upload your creations to SCS using the keyword "WWC22"--we'd love to see!
Second card of the day is for this week's SCS color challenge #200 which was to use pumpkin pie, brilliant blue & garden green together---can you say "ewwww", not my favorites thats for sure! I really needed to make some "older" boy cards and I find them soooo hard to make w/o being too cutesy, but this set "Rock-On" from H&M Stamp Co. really helps and its on sale right now for $4 at H&M's HUGE Garage Sale (if you haven't shopped yet, ya bettah' hurry, all sets under $5 thru tonight).
Guitar Hero is a super popular game at our house and alot of teen's right now (I'm not very good, but its always fun to get your inner rock-goddess on, giggle) so I made this card with that in mind. The dp is from DCWV's "Pet" stack (I know strange, but it worked) and I added a nice, thick coat of diamond glaze to the guitar and speaker to make them really pop. I had to add the sparkly glitterdots to the mix too---I must've done a pretty good job cuz' my son gave it his "thumbs up", lol!
If you were hoping to get that cutie-pie H&M set called "My Favorite Valentine" and it was sold out--my DT sistah Julia is giving one away as blog candy on Saturday, so make sure and visit. DT sistah Carolina is also giving yummy blog candy away--a $20 gift card to H&M Stamps for you to spend!!
Hope you're having a great week & see ya back here tomorrow.
