New Friends

New Friends?

Hi there, I hope this finds everyone visiting well!! It’s time for a new challenge at C.R.A.F.T.  this week, and we have a fun recipe challenge this time:

We have the one and only Rick St. Dennis as our ever generous sponsor

New Friends

The DT was supplied with their choice of images to work with for inspiration, and I chose Make a New Friend.  This pair gave me a chuckle when I first saw it, and I thought it would be a fun one to have a play with :)  I tried to give the cat a tabby look when coloring with my SN markers, don’t know if it’s really tabby, but I like it anyway!!  I had this paper for quite some time, and this seemed to be the perfect card to use it up on!!  It all coordinates, but I don’t know where it’s from, as it was floating around in one of my baskets!  I had the paw print ribbon, but was at a loss for what to do for the second ribbon required for the recipe.  I found the thin green and quite happy with the funky effect I got by just tying pieces around the paw print strip.  I added a button in the middle, then remembered these speech brads that I’ve had since the Stone Age….I think the words expressed by both cat and mouse are perfect!! I hope you can join us at  C.R.A.F.T.  this week to show us how you made out with our recipe :)

Hello, and Happy New Year!!! My blog has been down and out for over a month, but hopefully all the issues are resolved now!!! Just in time for a brand new challenge over at C.R.A.F.T.!!  We’re starting the New Year with a fun recipe challenge :)

Hula GirlI’m using Hula Halina for my card.  I colored her up with my SN markers, adding some definition to the hair with an ultra fine point pen.  I found the bright summery hibiscus printed paper in my stash, and then matched it up with some bright stripes, from a completely different collection.  The three flowers were cut with my Cricut, and I added some sparkle to them before popping them up on some foam dots.  I hope you can join us, and make sure you check out the fabulous creations of the DT here.
