D2D weekly challenge

Oh boy do we have a cute image this week to create with at D2D. If you normally don't participate in their weekly challenge you can go buy this image, submit it in their challenge and be qualified to get a free image for next weeks challenge. I highly recommend that you do this, as all Faiths images are too darn cute to not want!
Here is what I came up with for the challenge

I added a couple more ladybugs in the jar, colored with my Bics and Primascolor markers. I cut out a piece of vellum the size of the jar and added it over the image. I'm hoping it gives it a "real" jar affect. I added a gingham bow and a ladybug button.
The sentiments that came with the image were for "get well" but I think of this a summer fun!
Enjoy.



Happy Crafting,

Hambo Hoedown Challenge, Sparkle

This week the challenge at Hambo is all about the bling. My kind of challenge. We had a very cute party elephant to play with also. Lots of fun and a perfect card for me to make at this time. I'm trying to get a few birthday cards made to give to the VA assisted living home where my Dad is at. I haven't had much time to "play" with spending time there with him and now looking for a job and new place to live! That's a long story better told elsewhere!
Anywho, here is my card for this weeks challenge.
I think he ate too much cake and that caused him to be a little green!  I added some googley eyes and paper pieced his ears. Thanks for a great image and challenge. Looking forward to next weeks.
