Fan's Cricket


Good Morning! It is almost Friday, yeah the weekend is almost here. Anyone have exciting plans? The Downtown Library is having a Scottish celebration on Saturday and I think we are going to try and go there for a couple of hours. According to the schedule it looks like there will several different events going on, so that should be fun and something a little different. Since we are trying to be healthier our eating out isn't happening very much so we have been looking for alternatives that allow us to go out and do something fun without blowing all our hard work during the week. Then on Sunday Kip is going to see Rush in concert and I may plan a girl's night with my SIL.

Now on to the card! The challenge this week on Mo's Challenge Blog is Buttons and Bows. I used the image Fan's Cricket for my card today and colored her with Copic markers. My bow looks a little dark here, I have a hard time photographing bows when I use black ribbon. The paper is from DCWV's Far East paper pack. I love that paper and think I bought at least two of all the sizes it came in, its definitely one of my all time favorite paper packs. The ribbon and the bows both came from Hobby Lobby, I think. I have had those buttons forever. I bought a huge bag of black buttons to make some projects with a long time before I started stamping. I found the bag when I was organizing my stuff last month. Oh the things we find when we clean!

Gina,

I love the colors orange and black used together.Fan looks so "real life". To me ...... it's your best copic coloring to date!I would love to "scrap lift" a copy of this stamp from you.I know.... I definately know asking for things isn't polite..... but darn it...I'm not polite..... I love this stamp... I must get a copy!

I can't wait to get the 411 on the down town library visit... I hear that place is spectacular.

Have a great evening,

Allyson
