An Extra Entry for AI!


     I felt like I cheated the other day, when I double dutied my House Mouse card for the Art Impressions, Seeing Spots Challenge, LOL!  I decided to sit down and do a card totally dedicated to AI.

     I created my base with a pale purple, pearlized card stock, layered it with white, and added a polka dot designer paper from my scraps.  I stamped my new "Little Whoot", colored him with Copic markers, punched him out with an SU! scallop punch, and inked the edges with VersaMagice ink. The sentiment is from an old clear set which has no maker listed.  I built up a corner with Prima leaves, vintage ric-rac, a big white button, and popped Little Whoot so he was nestled down it it all.  I added a few glitter dot stickies to my sentiment, and called it done.

     I hope your week is starting out nicely.  Weather wise, the temps here in PA are amazing.  I woke to 49 degrees this morning!  Rain wise, you best be carrying an umbrella at all times.  It starts raining at the blink of an eye, with the promise of the whole week being like this.  So much for the pulled pork that my DH wanted to do in the smoker.

     I may be back a bit later, with another challenge card.  See you then!
