It is Day 3 of The Greeting Farm's CHA Relay challenge. I have been having fun with this even though it really is a challenge for me to get a new image and then have to come up with an idea for a card and then follow through with getting the card done and posted in such a short span of time. This little cub is named Toby and as soon as I saw him I thought he would be perfect for a baby card or maybe for a birthday card for a little boy. I usually wait until I am ready to send a card before I add any kind of sentiment so I am still not sure which I will use this for. After sizing and printing my digi image, I colored it with Copics. The papers are DCWV, the buttons and ribbon are both from American Crafts and the thread is DMC. I have been seeing lots of people playing along with the challenge out in blogland and it is interesting to see so many cards each day using the same image.
I have to brag just a little. I went to the grocery store today and by combining coupons with sales I brought out grocery bill from $190.00 down to $111.00. I was quite proud of myself, that's the most I have been able to shave off the total in a long time. I buy almost all cleaning supplies, personal care items (including my make up) and paper goods at the grocery store too. Since my local store doubles coupons I have found this to be the most economical thing for us to do. And you know what? Less money at the grocery store means more money for stamps and Copics!
