Double Challenge Inspriation Celebration

Yesterday was so gorgeous in my part of the world.  I spent all afternoon in my garden, and by late afternoon I had weeded and cultivated enough that I could get some bedding plants in.  I still have a ways to go because my gardens are quite large!  I'm hoping from the bottom of my tippy toe nails we don't get frost this coming weekend.  I chose hardy bedding out plants, but there is no telling what will or won't survive.

To reward myself, I decided to make a card combining yesterday's colour challenge and today's sketch challenge from splitcoast.  I already had the papers sitting out that I wanted to use from the colour challenge and the sketch I was going to use originally just wasn't working for me.  Fortunately, Roxie chose the perfect sketch for my image.  How very handy!!!


I had this Chicken Girl Designs image called Monkey Around printed and ready to go and I knew I wanted to build my card around it.  I coloured my image with Copic markers and cut the sentiment off the bottom.  The ribbon camouflages the cut line (I feel like I'm telling you about my undies right now by sharing intimate little secrets, but it's all good, right?!) and creates the illusion of a longer line to my image.  And really, who doesn't want to look longer and leaner?!  Using the challenges is paint by number inspiration which I'm perfectly happy with.

Tomorrow people, we will have pictures of our new mama foster dog.  She is getting huge, and I think she will whelp this coming weekend.  I can see the puppies moving just under her skin, and she is getting pooped more, poor dumplin'!  Yes, we still have our small cow foster dog we affectionately call Bunny as well.  More on that tomorrow!

stamps; monkey around (chicken girl designs by i {heart} papers)
paper; indian summer (basic grey), brown, coconut swirl (bazzill)
accessories; dusty durango ribbon (SU!), stickles (ranger), parisian dew drops (the robin's nest), copic markers

Want modded controllers cheap? I got mine at www.RapidFireMods.com! They are sooo amazing! Their prices are the best and their products are top notch. I am part of a Gamebattles team/clan and we got sponsored by them. Just letting you all know...TO CHECK THEM OUT! Don't buy from others! They're only imitators and don't provide as good as a product.

Finally the future of safe smoking is here! It looks, feels & tasts like a real cigarette but it's not a traditional cigarette. It's called an e cig People who already have experienced this amazing smokeless device are amazed by it's performance which contains No Tar,Ash,Odor or Secondhand Smoke.
