Hey All! As stated in my previous post, this post is going to be my application for a Design Team position over at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog. They have two spots open and hopefully they will pick me for one of them. I wanted to thank all of you for the wonderfully encouraging comments you left on the previous post wishing me luck. I so appreciate your encouragement and I am honored to call all of you my "blogging buddies
I would love to be a DT member of the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog! I LOVE the House Mouse, Happy Hoppers, and Gruffies stamps. The current DT over there is so amazingly talented, and it would be an honor to be part of their team. The House Mouse images provide such an array of creative possibilities, and to be able to be a part or a weekly challenge using these amazing images would be a blast. Plus, I think it's time that a guy's perspective gets represented!! LOL
So, as part of the application, I am supposed to post 3 examples of my work. I made two new cards last night for this post. One is also being used to submit for their current challenge, so it will be first. I couldn't decide which other one to choose, so I included a few of my previous cards as well. I know they only said 3, but I don't think it will hurt to exceed expectations, right? LOL
Here are my 7 submissions:
This is also for this week's challenge. You are to make a Valentine's Day card. I always loved the adage "You have to learn to love yourself before you can love another." So it was the inspiration for the sentiment on this card. It was computer generated and cut out with Nesties. The image was colored with my Copics. I mounted the red card stock (Bazzill) on some pearlescent silver card stock then that onto the floral paper (there was no name on the back so I don't know who it is made by). The image is called "Bunny Bath".
I used this image because it is one of my favorites and I just bought the stamp. The image is called "Buzzy Friends". I colored these little cuties with colored pencils and OMS and blending stumps. I used Shimmerz Angel Wings on their wings, but you really can't see how sparkly they are in the picture. The patterned paper is by Itty Bitty Scraps and the black card stock is Bazzill. The sentiment was computer generated and the little bees are buttons with their shanks removed.
The rest of the cards below are ones from previous posts.
Well, now I'll wait to see if I'm chosen. Keep your fingers crossed, and I'll let you all know as soon as I know. I so appreciate your wonderful support and your kind comments.
Love ya Buddies!
