Normally I would be posting my Team Fumi creation for the current Yumi & Fumi Handmade Challenge today but since the Christmas season is in full swing, we're having a bit of a break by having a month long inspiration challenge instead of a bi-weekly challenge. Team Yumi posted last week and Team Fumi will be posting at the end of the month - and YOU have all month to find some time to play along at this busy time of year.
Here's a reminder for the inspiration photo:
Don't forget to play along.
Since I'm not doing a Y&F post today, I thought I would share a card I made for a friend's 40th birthday.
Hmmm, actually looking at it today, except for the blue/grey it DOES kind of fit with the Y&FH inspiration photo. Well how about that? The kraft, gold, white.....
We gave this card with a little something to welcome our friend to the "Over 40" club....
Yep - a jar of 40 suckers (aka lollipops). Oh yeah, we're mature.
- finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches, kraft card stock base, white card stock mats
- patterned paper: My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found"
- stamped image: The Greeting Farm - Paul from the "Roll Call" set, coloured with Copic Markers (E000, E00, E01, E93, Y19, T2, T1, T3, T4 - I can't remember which colours I used on his hair. Probably the E2* series).
- Spellbinders Petite Circles, Pinking Circles, Cuttlebug Harmony Alphabet dies and a birthday adhesive gem charm from my stash.
- layout: Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge #464
