Hello there, my crafty friends! How’s your mojo flowin’? Mine is spent! I’ve had a goal to have more than one card in a publication for 2012 – well, I just have to get the happy email in 2012. I have been submitting like crazy – even making stuff I don’t really like that much – just to get a ton in, in the hopes that I’ll get one of those emails that says, we want x, y and z!! Well, the past few calls, I haven’t even gotten a happy email. Ugh. My first love is coloring, as I’m sure you all know if you follow this blog; however, I don’t ever see very many things that are colored on the pages of the magazine that I tend to submit to. So I submit things that just aren’t my style a lot of the time. Oh well! I’m sure I’ll get back in the groove one of these days…
So after that uber uplifting paragraph, how about a fun little card?? LOL When I first was accepted for the Lil’ Inker Designs Color Team, I chose to color up this darling little Hamster Cupid from the 2 Cute Ink line. If you need any help catching a little love, I’m sure he’s the fella to get the job done!
He’s in some warm greys with little dots of blue and blue violet around him to give the image a little more depth. The back mat has a few rows of a heart border die in the whole white on white effect. Plus I added the sweet stitched hearts to give the little guy something to aim at! I don't know if this really works as CAS but I'll add it to the CAS-ual Fridays challenge #74 - Put your heart into it! I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp challenge to use dies or punches.
Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! I’m pooped! Went to the little man’s last soccer game – in the freezing rain – complete with pizza and award party after, then to his girlfriend’s birthday party at a gymnastics academy, and I’m sick to boot. Tired! This little mama needs to put up her feet and *rest my eyes* Thanks so much for stopping by!! :o) lyss
