How's that for a title? I've been a little busy this past couple of weeks getting things ready for my little's one's birthday party that was Saturday. It was a success but talk about wearing me out! Then I added Thanksgiving cards to my list-and succeeded! Let me take care of business and then I can show you what I made!
I am submitting this card into the following challenges:
I am also linking this up to Pin and Tack: Spark Your Creativity-Anything Goes! Thank you Corrinne for telling me about this challenge! :)
Clear It Out Challenge: Ugly Sweater (use up never used papers) Plus what a great name for a challenge!
For Fun Challenges: Thankful-I'm thankful for the little hand I borrowed to make these cards :)
Here's my card. I painted my son's hand multiple times. I made different variations, but I was in spaz mode trying to get them made and sent out that I realized it too late. I took only one picture.
Do any of ya'll still have these paper pads from Provo Craft? I have 2 for Fall, one for Christmas, and made 2 or 3 others. They are like circa 2000. LOL. This is a country look that I am not really into anymore! But they work great for Thanksgiving! :) I would use a full sheet to cut backgrounds and then used the scraps on other cards because I could only make 3 (I think) backgrounds from each sheet. They are 8X11 (or so) and my cards are 5.5 inches by 4 inches. It reduced scraps which is nice.
I painted each finger and his hand and thumb with acrylic paint (over and over again). Then I put googly eyes on the turkeys. This costs a little extra at the post office. But goggly eyes are so fun! :)
Thank you for stopping by! Until next time my friends...it's time to do something with that ugly paper!
