It's that time of year AGAIN!!!! I hope you had fun hopping this weekend for Operation Write Home. If you haven't already, scroll down so you can - there is a TON of holiday eye candy (and some blog candy) to be had! Saturday also began the Hope You Can Cling To challenges on SCS.
My cards are a little out of order, but I'm SUPER excited about my FIRST post for AmberInk!
I used the FABULOUS iPaper with Ladybugs, and the super adorable ladybug with heart image. This card is for Lee's challenge to find inspiration from the cupcakes. I used the right-hand cupcake where I took the colors and the little lace.
Here's a close-up of the ladybug... I added Distress Stickles to it, and it looks SO fun in real life! Lee said we had to have pink, so the hearts are colored in pink, although it's tough to see after the Stickles were added.
Isn't it TOO CUTE?!
My next card uses MORE Distress Stains. I swear I'm addicted to these things! This is for Lydia's challenge to use a pink critter. This makes me think of a whale just cruising around at sunset enjoying the gorgeous view. A little digi paper resized to my liking and some corregated card board rounds it out.
Last, but certainly not least, is my entry for Dina's challenge where we are to create a masculine card and put pink on it. Immediately I thought of this ADORABLE LOTV image. What guy doesn't love a good BBQ? My pink is subtle, but it's there... on the stripes of the apron, the hot dogs, and the noses of both the bear and the dog. I also have 2 pink pearls in the bottom right corner.
This one took a few Copics to make happen. In any event, I hope you'll play along with the Hope You Can Cling To challenges, or just make a few cards to send to this FABULOUS cause.
