Happy it's Friday

Hi All! Thanks for coming by for another visit. I have a job interview this afternoon and I really hope that I get this job. Actually there are 3 that I've applied for that I would love to have.

Anyway, I played along with a couple of challenges using Inktegrity's newest image - Teddy. He is darling, his face is so loveable. I also played along with Dutch Dare Card Challenges which was to create this pocket card and I am not sure that I completely understood the directions (I am such a visual person, I'm pathetic, I know) but I am happy with the way it turned out. Very cute. I also played along with Color Throwdown (one of my favorite challenge sites) which was to use Chocolate, Olive (opt), Cream and Dark Red. I used all three plus a little white.

This is the front view - I used SU! decorative paper from, gosh, I think a couple of years ago (yes, I hoard that bad!), Old Olive for the scallop, Chocolate Chip for the base and I printed the image on Neenah Classic Crest card stock. I colored it using Copics. The "tab" was created from one of the ornaments that came in the Winter Collection from All That Scraps. I did cut the hook off of it because I figured it wouldn't travel well.

Here is the inside pull out where my greeting is. I created this in a word program using a cute font called Allura Script ( that says "Wishing you a beary Christmas and a New Year filled with blessings and comfort!" How I did this without using up a lot of card stock was, I opened up a Word Document and typed my sentiment. Formatted it with the font and about how I wanted it to look on the page. Then I printed it on plain white paper. Then I took the piece of card stock I wanted it on and using some temporary adhesive, I adhered the card stock over the printing. You need to adhere really well. And then printed again.

I hope you enjoyed my card. Have a great day!
