Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps:
I chose a really cute image from Bugaboo to work with this week. It has a very long name: Bugaboo Stamps Make It Snappy Kidz Mother's Day Girl. See, I told you it was a very long name. But I got a kick out of it when I first saw it, and thought it would be perfect for my daughter.
I wanted a sketch to use for this week, so I picked Graphicat Sketch's Challenge #25, and just turned it on its side:
I am also going to enter my card into the Pile It On Challenge this week, since Bugaboo is sponsoring that as well, and it is also a Mother's Day challenge. How's that for coincidence? Or synchronicity, if you prefer.
I printed my BSMISKMDG image onto MICBC and colored it with the following Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R11, R20
Hair: YR23, E33, E35, E37
Flowers: R00, R01, R02
Leaves: BG90, BG93, BG96
Bouquet Paper and Sentiment: V20, V22, V25, V28
I chose paper from the Prima Nature Garden collection, and paired it with DCWV CS. As usual, I made die cuts, (I know, I know, what a shock, yadayadayada), and used the following dies: MFT Rolled Flower, Fishtail Flags Stax, and Mini Pennant; SCACD Breezy Branches. I added Queen and Co. pearls to the rolled flowers. I also used MIC chipboard pieces. The dragonfly was brushed with Wink of Stella Brush Silver. The branch was colored with my Copics. And that's it!
Before I go, I want to thank all of you for your good wishes on my shoulder. For those of you who don't know, I had surgery to remove a basal cell skin cancer last Wednesday. The incision is over 2 inches long and has 15 stitches. So I look a bit like Frankenstein's monster. Especially with the lovely bruising. I am sore, but it is getting better each day. I expect to be good as new very soon, although with one heck of a scar. The good news is that I rarely (like never) wear clothing that bares my shoulders, so no one will see it. Of course, if you so desire, I can email you a photo of my wound taken two days after surgery. I will refrain from posting said photo here, so that I don't gross everybody out, thus chasing away my followers.
Do take this opportunity to get a Mom's Day card done and enter our challenge. And be sure to check out the super creations done by my talented teammates! Have a wonderful week!
