YES, i got to make a couple of cards today, and i am SO thrilled that they weren't just the usual DT assignments! i'd been meaning to play along LAST week at CPS but didn't quite make the deadline, what with the branch opening and working some overtime, so i jumped on it this week and it turned into a productive weekend (with lots of sleep!).
first, here's my card featuring KOALA, from Some Odd Girl... i've had this little dude for a LONG time and it's the first time i was brave enough to colour him (i am NO GOOD when it comes to colouring FUR! but i like his shiny little nose!):
(the sentiment is cute, right? RIGHT?!)
i WANTED to add him to the collection of cards for Some Odd Girl's Digi Day challenge (which was to make a valentine WITHOUT using red or pink as dominant colours), but was late to the party, because The Son had a second interview this afternoon and i was out WAY longer than i'd anticipated. he did, however, land himself a shiny new job, and i couldn't be more pleased!
anywho, here's the CPS sketch (#200) i used:
simple, but totally up my alley!
i'm also playin' along with Cute Card Thursday for this one - their theme is "Out with the Old" - not only have i been sitting on this image, but the BasicGrey ORIGINS paper has been begging for some attention. :)
and i've wanted to play along at Club Anya for ages, but had forgotten my login on The Greeting Farm's Galleria - somehow it came to me today, and i LOVED the sketch, so i couldn't wait to bust out the Prismas and colour this lovely little lady up:
based on this sketch (with a little bit of tweaking, because i'm not big on cards without sentiments):
(i lullz a little, 'cuz it says "sketcy" and that's just kinda cute!)
totally LOVE the round cards, and i bought a bunch more at Michael's from their dollar section, so i just had to jump on the challenge! plus it's been cold and snowy here (again), so i thought this was a rather appropriate card for the occasion. time to light some candles!
tomorrow, we introduce the new Design Dollies to you, and launch the 2011 challenges, complete with a new format! it's gonna be GREAT, folks! stop by and see what we're up to, and play along with our FIRST Color Challenge of the year! :)
