This is a late post today but I have been unexpectedly busy!! Still I did not want to miss the deadline for a new challenge blog that I have found thanks to Donna from design by Donna.
I'm very happy to have found the Send A Smile 4 Kids group and am excited to make many more cards to send "the kids"! Please check out the "About Us" tab on their blog for all the details.
The amazingly talented designer at Papertrey Ink, Betsy Veldman, has challenged us in this week's Make It Monday to create an Ombre Stenciled Background. I didn't have any stencils so I rushed out to buy some. In two days I've become a stenciling fool!!
I not only stenciled my background I stenciled my bunnies too! : )
How is it that I can have this much SCHTUFF and still need more! but I certainly do....right?? !! Good thing we have Darnell and her wonderful good!! NBUS challenges to help us to put all those needed supplies to good use. This card is all about NBUS! every thing including the paper is NBUS - oops - not the ink - or the tiny string on bunnie's neck! but everything else!! : )
I designed my card in response to the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.
Because I wanted to combine these two challenges - I was challenged in how to get the vertical strip as the design shows while still keeping my Ombre background. What I decided to do was to simply cut my paper - add two additional pieces of card stock just behind the center section "bumping it up" : )
Thank you FMS and PTI and Darnell for all the fun!! Please check out each of these challenge blogs and by all means consider joining the efforts at Send a Smile 4 kids!!
My photo today is for Leigh Penner of "To the Full" blog : ) I might get to meet Leigh when she visits South Dakota this summer!! Our plan is to meet at this lake!! Maybe we'll see Nicholas Cage! or find a National Treasure of our own!! : )
Thanks a bunch for stopping by! Have a great night.
