My favorite scrapbook store, Scrapbook Creations, held a fundraiser for the March Of Dimes on Saturday so several of us went to give our support. It was a fun day of stamping with friends and door prizes. I was actually able to get a good start on several projects.
House Mouse & Friends have a “Springtime” challenge this week and nothing says spring more than showers and flowers. I colored this sweet little guy with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, cut it out with a Spellbinders’ circle die, and layered it on a Spellbinders’ Blossoms 3 die cut.
The background is created with a Darice Crackle embossing folder, which I lightly sanded. I used a combination of an EK Success Garden Flower Chain Large Edger Punch, Cheery Lynn’s Miniature Rose, and yellow polka dot Shine On Basic Gray paper for the three floral strips in the background.
I used the following sketch from the Sketch Saturday challenge.
Well, we are definitely having April showers (along with lots of thunder) so I better finish up. I’ll be back soon.
