sticky - this will remain on top until December 9th
I have picked a day between November 18th and December 9th. The day that I have picked I will have random.org pick a number out of the comments left and that person will win the blog candy I am giving away to celebrate reaching 20,000 hits. The thing you don't know is which day between now and then that I've picked, so it's best to come by every day and leave a comment. (if you are joining in late you need to go back to November 18th to start leaving comments)
If you have a blog let your readers know about my blog candy too! Wanna see what the blog candy is?
I've already added more to this than shows in the picture including a few of the images Chesney has drawn for Squigglefly!
I'm very excited to show you today's card. It uses an image that will be available from Squigglefly. It's one that is a collaboration between my sister Lynne and my daughter Chesney.
Isn't this just a sweet image? I colored everything with copics and used a piece of wallpaper for the wall, a piece of cardstock for the baseboard, and a piece of the woodgrained paper like I used on my guitar card for the floor. I cut the chair out and mounted it on top of the wall and floor piece and added some shading to the floor under the chair. I cut out the slippers and mounted them on the floor too.
Again, I got brave with my white gel pen for highlights and I don't think I did a great job on this one; maybe went a little overboard. Oh well, I'm not not liking it enough to not show you! LOL! That's confusing!
When I showed this card to my sister she asked what sort of greeting or verse I was going to put on it. I told her that not all cards have to be sent with a purpose other than just sending someone a card. I thought about it some more later and thought ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) are just little pieces of art people trade; they don't all have another purpose (although they could).
Then I thought maybe other people would like to have an idea or purpose for the card like my sister so I thought about the image. This little girl could be reading a favorite bedtime story, looking at a family photo album, making a Christmas wish list from the Sears catalog, or reading the Bible. Wouldn't this be a cute book club party invitation? Okay, I've rambled way too much!
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family tomorrow. I'll be back on Friday!
