It's been a while since I've posted anything crafty, so I'm excited to do so today. It's been a CRAZY month, to say the least. We've wrapped up all of our college visits, visited Kansas City to see the Broadway play Wicked, went to the zoo in Omaha, and had senior pictures taken yesterday. Whew! I'll be excited to have some down time. That won't come for another couple weeks, as her birthday is next weekend and then mine is the following, but I'm trying to enjoy every last minute that I can with my girl. I'm happy, and excited, and sad and much more emotional than I thought I'd be. How is it that I'm almost an empty nester, when just yesterday I brought her home from the hospital?! Goodness, how time flies! *sigh*
With today being Sunday, the new Pile It On challenge has been posted. This week's challenge is Cute or Spooky. We're sponsored by Sami Stamps, and the winner will get a digi of their choice. Here is my card.
I think it's cute and a little spooky. You can ask anyone who knows me, I dislike spiders, with a passion. I though this flower image was perfect for the challenge this week. I colored it with my Copics and SU! Blendabilities, and added some sparkle with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen. Here is a close up, so you can kinda see it.
I think it's lovely, in real life. It's very sparkly, and I didn't have to worry about using glitter, which I also dislike with a passion. lol Once I was done coloring, I chose some Halloween themed papers and used some of my favorite dies. This card came together quite quickly, and turned out exactly how I had pictured it in my head. Love it when that happens! I'm going to submit my card for the following challenges:
