WHY am I so incapable of making a card, from start to finish, all at one time?? Sheesh -- I had this image colored for almost a week before it slowwwwwwwly became a card. And it's really not that complicated --- it just wouldn't come together!
I knew I wanted to join in the High Hopes challenge so I started going through my pages & pages of rubber....
I decided to use Sweet Little Thing, a sweet oldie from the fabulous days of Crissy. I idolize her no matter WHO she draws for! I also wanted to enter the 7 Kids challenge this week -- this is where it got tricky. I started with a circle shaped card -- but my biggest Nestie wasn't as big as I wanted the card. So I used my Creative Memories cutter -- it just didn't look right. Nothing cuts like a die, even when I have a template to use! So I decided to make a regular square card -- a bit smaller than usual -- & just add lots of circles. I'm going to have to invest in some BIGGER dies! I used Basic Grey Urban Prairie papers --- I paper pieced the cupcake liner -- & added lots of glitter to the frosting.
He will always be the cutest ant around!
I am entering this into the following challenges:
High Hopes -- Anything Goes (always my favorite challenge)
7 Kids College Fund -- Circles (clearly a hard one for me)
Papertake Weekly -- Fancy A Punch
Bunny Zoe's Crafts -- Lace
I'm never been more glad it's Friday -- I did something to my back & have been in agony the last couple of days. I am enjoying some heating pad time right now & have taken my quota of Ibuprofen. I hope it's better by tomorrow because I have loads to do. Even though it's supposed to be COLD here in Wisconsin this weekend, I want to go to the plant store!! So far I've bought: 2 Shasta Daisies. LOL -- I usually have a whole arsenal of flowers by now!!
And what did you think about Idol last night?? One word......conspiracy......nuff said.....
