Today's "main event" comes courtesy of a Tic Tack Toe challenge at The Paper Players -
My combination was Birthday-Dry Embossing-Ribbon.
I also used the sketch challenge from the New Catalogue Edition over at Create with Connie and Mary
I'm actually quite pleased with how my elephant card turned out - he's from You're Amazing. I coloured his body using an aqua painter and ink. I was also happy to use one of those fantastic brads that match the Summer Smooches paper. I was disappointed that they were a limited time thing!
Yesterday I also played around with Christmas ideas for my Christmas in August. I spotted the video tutorial by Dawn Olchefske (on Stampin' Connection) using the design below. I decided to try it out with Bells and Boughs. What you see below is the final product....it's followed by my first attempt using the flourish from Everything Eleanor and colouring in the flowers. I decided that was too busy and time intensive for a card stack.
So - I guess that's why some days it takes so long to get a post finished!!!
Today holds some garage clean up and babysitting Elliot this afternoon.
Here he is yesterday afternoon, playing at our house with his dad's hat on!
Ta ta for now - Hope you have a day full of smiles!
Thanks for dropping by.
