Can you believe that two Monday's have passed and it's time again for another House Mouse And Friends Monday Challenge? Wow, the weeks are such a blur anymore. I can't believe that July is already more than half over.
OK, on with the challenge. . . . .As my title indicates the challenge is to do a card that revolves around or has something to do with the letter "B". This week it was my turn to come up with the challenge, and I thought just using a letter of the alphabet would not only be easy, but would allow for a whole range of ideas. So, to get you started, here is my challenge card:
Can you find all 6 "B" tie ins? Buttons, babies, blue, bunny, buggy, boys (I'm pretending all the bunnies are boys! LOL) This adorable image is called "Bunny Buggy". I colored the image with my colored pencils and oms. I paper pieced the buggy so that it matched the background paper. The over-sized buttons I made from scratch. They are really easy to make. You simply punch out 5 or 6 scrap circles and 1 circle of the paper you want your button to be. Then just glue all of the circles together and make sure the last circle glued on top is your colored/patterned paper. Use a tool to punch the holes (I used a silent setter for mine). Here is a close up of the buttons:
This technique gives you the ability to have "buttons" that match your card perfectly. It is a fun idea that I saw somewhere on the net quite awhile ago but I can't remember where.
Anyway, there you have it! I really do hope you take the time to play in the next couple of weeks. At least run over and take a look at my talented teamie's challenge cards this week. I've seen them, and they are amazing this week! Take a look HERE.
OK, thanks for coming by and taking a look. I'm always so grateful that you do. I have a great post coming up on Wednesday (I promise, God forbid anything unforeseen!) So I hope to see you then.
I usually don't do the "PIC OF THE WEEK" on my HM post, but I couldn't resist this week because the picture fit so well with my card project this week. GO TAKE A LOOK BELOW! LOOKS LIKE ONE OF HER BABIES FELL OUT OF THE BUGGY!!!! LOL I took this photo through the glass at my front door. This little one was munching leaves right by the porch. Such a cutie!
Take care all! Hope you are well! See you on Wednesday!
