Hello Friends! Thanks for coming by today!
Today Pink Cat Studio is releasing oodles of digi images for Hanukkah, winter and Christmas!
I enjoy the challenge of making cards/projects that aren't my typical. Hanukkah is definitely not my typical! Remember, I am a pretty boring Catholic Irish-American. But I do enjoy learning about other cultures and religions immensely. Though, I do worry that when I try my hand at one of these projects that I will unintentionally insult the culture or the religion. So please do tell me if you ever notice that there is a significant faux-pas. I can only learn if someone tells me. Melissa is coming up with the digi images on a daily basis. We don't have any advance knowledge of what she is going to come up with....because she doesn't know either! That said, I can't really prepare too much in advance for my cards. Meaning, if I am at the stamp shop I can't pick up paper for an upcoming theme. The good news is that this makes me get creative and makes me use up stuff that I already have. Guess What? I don't have any Hanukkah paper at my house! ☺ In fact, I don't even really buy much blue paper. (I know, Mary C, you find this unbelievable! lol!) However, I do have an unimaginable amount of Silver cardstock and I did have 2 sheets of this silver snowflake paper...and what happens to be on the flip side of the flakes is this blue-ish/teal-ish design with royal blue, white and silver dots. I thought this would work. Is using snowflakes and a few roses appropriate for Hanukkah? I hope so. I hadn't made these cute origami boxes for awhile, so why not?! They are a good size for candy or small gifts (the holder part measures about 4x4 or so). Maybe even a dreidel!? You can find great directions on how to make origami boxes here. I suggest trying the box fold on a trial piece of 12x12 paper before using "good stuff"...as it can be a little tricky the first time.
There are a lot more image to check out for this week! And the rest of the DT has made some incredible projects! So head on over the Pink Cat Studio Blog and the Digi Store!
And don't forget about the Bio Betty contest!
Next up is my card for today's 3 Clover Thursday Challenge! Teen Themed! I used 80's Anya from The Greeting Farm. How fun is she?! I was born in 1975, so the 80's hold a lot of fond memories for me! And like I mentioned last week, I am a sucker for images with curly hair! LOL! I paper pieced her shirt with a skull from the background paper. Don't ya love her leg warmers? My favorite pair that I had were rainbow colored. Heeheehee! I just bought an outfit for Maeve a few weeks ago that was a little more money than I usually like to spend on toddlers clothing...but what totally suckered me in were the leg warmers that coordinated with it. Dressing little girls are so much fun!
ok...ok....it is 2:30 AM...so I need ot end my blabbing!
Have a Marvelous Thursday!
