On that day I will have random. org pick a winner from the comments left on that day. You won't know which day is picked, so your best chance is to comment every day! I will announce the winner of the candy on November 1st! Good luck!
Hi everyone! Yay for Fridays! How about a little silliness today? Michelle Bertuzi had some new images released at Squigglefly last weekend and this Toaster set was just too cute not to play with!

The toaster comes with a sentiment that says "feeling burnt out?", but I went with my own silly sentiment. I have an online friend who I exchange cards with periodically, and she has a crazy sense of humor so this is going to be mailed to her.
I colored the image with Copic markers and chalked a little around the toaster with some yellow chalk. The sentiment is computer generated and the font is another freebie you can grab HERE. I cut the toast out and popped it up with some pop dots. Nothing special was done on this card, it was just a silly fun card to make for a friend.
My next card is for the Hope You Can Cling To challenge #28 (can you believe I've done all 28 challenges so far?!), and the theme is make time to spend with your girlfriends AND you need to do something to make the sentiment go with the image. Well, that is normally right up my alley but my mind wasn't working too creatively yesterday and I couldn't think of anything great. I did come up with this card for it though.

I used an image drawn by Tracey Malnofski called The Heart That Loves, but I eliminated the words on the image before printing it. I then printed out my own sentiment in another fun font you can grab free HERE. I colored everything with Copic markers, but I did chalk the grass and sky. After the grass was chalked I used an Art Impressions stamp of some grass sprigs and stamped over the chalk with some Green Galore ink.
If you look closely you might be able to see that the yellow strip of card stock was embossed with a paisley design to match the designer paper I used in the background. The embossing was done with a texture plate from Ellison.
Riley is going to the new groomers today and after work I am going to try to go and vote early to avoid the crowds on election day. After that I have my massage scheduled. These massages are deep tissue ones that kill while they're happening, but they really do seem to help with my hip, back and leg problems so I continue on with them!
I wish you all a wonderful Friday, and thanks for looking!
