Happy Easter! I hope you are enjoying your day. We had brunch at my daughter's house this morning instead of doing a big Easter dinner. My granddaughter was excited because she got to do an Easter Egg hunt and also received some toys and clothes. She received a new science set and couldn't wait to show me the marbles that were growing in water - apparently they started out as granules the size of the head of a teeny pin. My daughter graduated with an Honours Degree in Bio-Medical Sciences so she is anxious to see that her kids get exposed to the sciences as well as other subjects so they can choose which appeals to them. The baby was just happy to show off his walking skills and play with his new toys. He is too young for candy.
The challenge this week at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog requires that you make a distressed card featuring one of Sassy Cheryl's images. I had never distressed anything but after my disappointment with the Easter cards, I am happy with this one and hope you like it too.
I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Cooking It Up With Kate - Something New (Technique), Something Old (Charm has been in my stash for 6 years) and Something Sweet ( Teddy's are so sweet)
Digital Tuesday Challenge - Scrap It (The only thing that didn't come from my bits and pieces box was the card blank)
S2G Challenges - Anything Goes
The image is called Hanging Out To Dry and was a generous freebie from Cheryl for her group members on Paper Craft Planet and I sure hope he isn't too distressed hanging by one arm! It has been coloured using a combination of Prismacolor and Koh-I-Noor pencil crayons. The papers are from Basic Grey and my stash. The cardstock is from Lasting Impressions and my stash. Other supplies used: Ribbon (Michaels), Beads (my stash), Brads (Making Memories), Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Ranger), Safety Pin (Dollarama), Butterfly Charm (my stash), Flower Punch (EK Paper Shapers) and Tag Punch (Martha Stewart).
