IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR MY HAPPY MONDAY POST,
PLEASE SCROLL DOWN
Okay, I admit, I was too lazy to say that this post is for the Calendar Girls Challenge. I was the virtual hostess this month and this is what I asked:
I chose March because it is my birth month and the time that the weather starts to break here in the NorthEast. I always have something to look forward to!
For our challenge this month, I wanted to challenge us with a three-fer. It is the third month after all!
1. Since Spring is right around the corner and I am so looking forward to it, I'd like everyone to use a stamp/stamps/digi(s) that portray something YOU are looking forward to! It can be Spring, Summer, vacation, a holiday, or even a nice dinner!
2. I'd like you to use a technique or product that "scares" you. In my case, it could be glitter or spray Smooch. Just make it something that you admire and have procrstinated trying or using!
3. Lastly, I'd like you to use the attched sketch. You can interpret it however loosely you wish. I would just like CS/DP to follow my sketch - add all the layers and embellies you see fit. The sketch can be rotated and proportions can change - it is just a rough drawing
That all being said, here is my card and a little ditty to tell you about it.
I am so looking forward to the day that my son, Kyle, can have a dog. Probably not as much as he is, but still looking forward to that day! Therefore, I used PuddleJumper, Noah , from Claudia and Company as my image. I recently won this and couldn't wait to get it so that I could make this very card!
I am scared spitless of using my Smooch spray - it comes out about once every hundreth time I try it, so was determined to use it on this card. I used two different ones trying to get it to glitter - and while the picture really doesn't do it justice, it isn't exactly how I wanted the finished product to look....lol I like to think that maybe it depicts a splattering of mud which Kyle and his puppy will one day be tracking through my house....lol
Thanks for stopping by!
