How are y'all doing this weekend? Have you gotten the chance to get crafty? I have to admit that I haven't stayed indoors much lately. The weather in East Texas this week has been absolutely gorgeous! We've been in the 70's, with lots of sunshine and the perfect amount of breeze. *happy sigh* I am trying to enjoy every minute of it, as I'm headed back to Michigan on Monday, for more work training. I see the highs there next week are only going to be in the 30's, with more snow on Thursday and Friday. Bleh. I will be happy to return, after my training is done. lol
It's time for another Pile It On challenge. Our challenge this week is to use paint. We also have a lovely sponsor, Doodle Pantry. The winner will get to pick 3 digi's of their choice, from the shop.
Here is the card I made.
I needed a masculine birthday card for a friend, so I wanted to challenge myself to create one for this challenge. And who says you can't send a guy a shaker birthday card? lol I stenciled the stars onto the base panel, with white paint. I then created my shaker part, and glued it on. I finished with a couple of stars and a vellum sentiment. Easy peasy, and I like how it turned out. I hope he enjoys it. :-)
I'm going to submit my card for the following challenges:
Seize The Birthday: Birthday
Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge# 35: Sketch
Addicted To Stamps & More Challenge #181: Anything Goes
Fab & Funky Challenge #292: Male Birthday
Simon's Wednesday Challenge: Shake It Up
The Male Room Challenge #29: Monochromatic
Time Out Challenge #50: Photo Inspiration (I loved the text and colors in this photo)
Friday Mashup Challenge #243: Birthday & Use Stencils
So that's all for me! I'm off to church, then going to this cute little fruit and vegetable market with one of my friends. I'm excited to get some fresh fruit before I head off on my Michigan adventure. I hope you'll get the chance to play along with this challenge. Don't forget, you now have two weeks to join us. I hope y'all have a great week!
