Lawn Fawn Magnets ~

Hey all!  Since I'm on vacation, I thought I'd bop in here with an iCopic post from a while back that I've never posted here!  Thanks for stopping by!
The iCopic Weekly Challenge #40 is Anything But a Card!  I was inspired by this challenge to make a little game set for my son.  We'll be taking a road trip later this summer to go visit my in-laws in Missouri, so I'll need some things to pass the time with my little guy.  I have some magnet sheets in my stash that I use for various things - mainly for storage cards for my die cuts.  The back of the magnet sheet is white paper... light bulb moment!  I've seen cookie sheet calendars in the past, but I thought maybe I could make my son a set of magnets to play with in the car!
I chose to use the adorable Lawn Fawn Critters in the Forest clear acrylic set.  I took all of the image stamps in the set and put them on my largest stamping block.  Instead of wasting my nice Copic paper, I stamped directly on the back of the magnet sheet and colored everything up with my markers.


Once they were all colored up and cut out, I rimmed the edges with a black marker to finish them off!  Easy!  Now we can make up funny little stories with them while we're driving through corn fields as far as the eye can see!  lol 
  Have a super weekend!!  :o) lyss
