You & Me

Hello, everyone! I know, I was pretty quiet over the weekend. I am still battling this bug, but it appears to have moved in and set up housekeeping in my immune system. Thank you for all of the well wishes :)

Today I am posting at Lala Land Crafts. Lala Land recently had a new release of Winter/Christmas images and they are certainly worth checking out. Just adorable! I used Winter Marci for today's card and I decided to try and shake things up a bit. First of all, I opted to make a rectangular card, even though I really love a square card. Second, I decide to photograph my card on top of my desk instead of the white background I usually set up. I kind of like it. Tell me what you think.

Winter Marci is paired with a couple of my new favorite papers, the stripes are by Graphic 45, and the polka dots are by October Afternoon. I also made a sweet little felt flower to show her off a bit. These flowers take roughly a minute to make and you can find a tutorial here by Lollychops. The tutorial shows her making them out of paper, but she says that felt is just as easy...and it is! I use Fabri-tac to hold them together rather than felt glue, because it is fast grab and seems to be easier to work with. Wouldn't a cluster of these felt flowers look fabulous on the lapel of a jacket, the front of a Fall handbag, or even on the plunging toe cleavage of a shoe? I know, toe cleavage, where did I come up with that? I'm sure I stole it off the Internet some where.

Before I let you go...Kenny K's Krafty Girlz have introduced a new challenge and this time its a sketch. I have to tell you...sketch challenges are da' bomb!!! Half the work has already been done for you! Gotta love that ;D Head over to the Kenny K Krafty Girlz Challenge blog and check it out. The prizes have changed a bit. One person will be randomly selected, provided they used a Kenny K image on their card, and they will win 5 digi images of their choice! That is a whole lot of swag!!! Somebody has to win and it might be you! Tootles and have a great day ;D
