Finally, Friday!

What a creative day I have had. 

As many of you know, my middle name is "Procrastinator."  That being said; I finished up a birthday present for my EK's father.  Since I started watching him, I have made various gifts out of 12 by 12 scrapbook pages.  The frame holds a prominent place in their house to this day. 
I kept it simple, since EK's dad is a guy's guy.  I took the colors from the shirt and made them the focus.  The only embellishment are three buttons in the top right corner.  The large picture is 5 by 5, the two corners are 4 by 4 and the three smaller ones are 3 by 3.  The five adjectives fit EK to a "T". 

Of course, that isn't the only thing I created today....

This morning, I worked on the Hump Day Inspiration #4 over at Inktegrity's Challenge Blog.  What a fun challenge it was.  Here it is.
The image and sentiment are (obviously) from Inktegrity.  The Farmer Girl is color with Copics on white cardstock and mounted on dark blue cardstock.  Truth be told, I didn't like how it looked, so used some Frost White paint to tone down the blue and give a little glimmer.  The dps are Stampin' Up and the glitter around the sentiment is lily white glitter - sugar coating- by doodlebug designs.... I intentionally let the opposing corner curl just a bit to give it a more worn look.

And, because I just know I won't get anywhere near my crafting area tomorrow and possibly even Sunday, I made a card for SMC #9 wanting everyone to "Punch It."
This is an easel card in the upright position.  The outside of the card shows the pink Easter egg that has been "colored" with strips of paper that were punched on the top and bottom.  The sentiment is hand written next to Duncan emerging from an egg.  Duncan was colored with Copics and set on top of some foam tape to give him a boost.  The border punches are from Fiskars (found on clearance recently at Target for 6 dollars each) and all of the paper and ink are CTMH.

I believe I have bored you enough for one day.  Thanks for letting me share my creations with you today. 

See you Monday!
