Animal Challenge

Hi! Can you believe that it is Friday already? I'm not complaining, I guess  I had a busy week and the time just flew by.  Hope everyone who has school age children made it through week one okay.  It's great getting back into a routine.  For us, well this is my son's final semester at Fanshaw College - then he will be out in the work force like the rest of us (well most of us!)

Well lets get on with the reason you are here - today's challenge theme was animal, so you could use an image, embellishment or paper. I bought this cute stamp quite a while ago and never got around to colouring her up, so I did this week.
Here we have Ellie-phant!

The cool thing about this stamp is that it comes with it's own sentiment.  I love when then happens, although I don't always use them, but it's nice to knowI have that option.

Ellie was colouring with prismacolour pencils.  Now I must confess that this is not the original layout I had planned.  I'm sure it has happen to you as well, you have this vision on how you want the card to turn out, well mine didn't turn out the way I had envisioned!! But hey, I managed to salvage it somewhat.

Designer paper used is by MME - 6x6 Happier. Supplies used: Verve die, s/binder dies, sizzix embossing dot folder, clear glaze, glitter, su border bunch.

Next week we do not have  a challenge - this is because Emily, Paula and Linda with be at Scrapfest (Mall of America - Archivers shin-dig as Paula's calls it!), so our next challenge date is Sept 23, and it will be another sketch challenge.  This time the sketch is done by ME! Yep I even figured out how to do such a sketch on my computer - pretty easy really once you start! So with saying that, there is no reason not to play along, you have 2 weeks to get it done! Email your card to Emily by Sept 22, to be included in a chance to win some bella bucks.

Well, I'm out of here.  Have a great weekend - I just hope it quits raining and we see some sun! It's been doom and gloom here all week.
