First Days

Hi All!  It's time for another challenge over at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges and this week we've got a super easy one for you- Anything Goes.  I decided to try something new so I made a circle card which I haven't done many times but I'm always pleased with how they turn out so I don't know why I don't do it more often :)  The trickiest part always seems to be the layout and getting my mind to switch gears from the standard square and rectangle cards I'm used to making...but I like to challenge myself and go outside my comfort zone sometimes.  I've used Lil Little Frankie since I hadn't colored him up yet- I have to say I seriously love the Lil Littles!- and thought since he had a backpack I'd go with a kind of first day back to school vibe.  I hope you'll join us over at TPSC this week with Anything Goes and remember to use a Tickled Pink Stamps image when you join in the fun :)


You'll have to excuse my 'moment'- I forgot to write down my Copics...I know, bad Katie :)

Supplies: Card base- Truly Yours Archivers; DP- My Minds Eye; Borders- Bazzil; Bingo Card- Jenni Bowlin; Metal Embellishments- Tim Holtz; Brads- my stash

Oh Katie you're so funny! Ok we'll let you off the hook THIS time for not writing down your Copics. BY THE WAY - do you happen to have a good Copic combo for burgundy? On to your card! I love the round card for a change but I know what you mean about switching gears. You did a fabulous job tho GF!! Love that Bingo card!! Great image and coloring but that pretty much goes without saying when I comment on your stuff. LOL! Hugs!
