BooBoo 4 U

Although multi-tasking isn't always a good thing, when I can cover several challenges with one card I am happy :0). This card used this weeks 2S4U sketch as inspiration for the layout and the Paper Makeup Stamps release party challenge for colors and other specifics!

This "Boo Boo Monster" and sentiment are new releases over at PMS - isn't he the cutest? I created little band-aids to use as part of the design elements from the sketch layout.
The release party challenge was to use the colors, black, pink, white, a little bling, and texture.

And what's this?!
a bonus card!! I created this card for the second PMS release party challenge to CASE a card in the PMS gallery. I loved this quilted card concept from Michelle as soon as I saw it and really wanted to try the quilted technique.

I punched a bunch of the same size squares out of coordinating paper from a small Basic Grey pad I had. I glued them to my card base and ran the whole thing through my CB and labels Nestability. I used a white gel pen to draw in the stiching, but wished I would have used real stitching instead. Oh well, I still think it achieved the look I was going for.

It's been a really crazy week here. 3 day training class at work - with homework :0( Hubby out of town :0( And some extra-curricular activity every night of the week. I haven't been able to blog hop as regularly as I like and it bums me out that I may be missing some awesome creativity !! Hopefully I can catch up with you all soon :0)

We're almost to Friday - yippee!! Have a happy Thursday everyone!

  7. What great cards! Those band-aids are just such a neat idea for the boo-boo card. And I'm so excited you case'd one of my cards! I just love how you used ribbon behind your circle to break up the background a bit. And I love the paper you chose for your quilt. Reminds me of the Amish quilts I see when we visit Lancaster. :)
