My 9 yr old called me from her cousins in Colorado and said it was 55 this morning & she was wearing a sweatshirt today. WHAT??!! Are ya kidding me LOL It is like 106 EVERYDAY here in OKlahoma. She will not want to come back home on Saturday....LOL I miss my little princess.
On to my project.....
So, I created this card for 3 challenges. It actually challenges my brain to see how many challenges I can get out of one card. Is that bad of me. LOL
So, my starting place for my idea was:
1) Cooking With Cricut Challenge #43 (to create a project with a Lollipop)
2) I have a friend Lolly (believe it or not) and sometimes she gets called "lollipop" and her birthday is coming up soon and...her favorite lollipop is the "Tootsie Pop." She is old enough to remember the 1970's commercial for "How Many Licks does it Take to Get To The Center Of A Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop" with the turtle and the owl (Do you remember that?)
--So This was my true inspiration for the card--
3) Whimsical Wednesday challenge #15 was to create a card using scraps. Well, who doesn't have a ton of scraps laying around?? And, you had to take a picture of the scraps you used (That will be below)
4. Birthday Sundaes #18 was "Anything Goes" meaning to create anything you want for a birthday card as long as there is some sort of birthday sentiment on the front.
Card is a pre-bought white 5 x 6.5 card base. All papers used were scraps.
--Blue cloud paper was cut with Lacy labels at 4.75 x 6.25.
--Owl was cut with Give A Hoot at 2.75. I hid any facial features. And the beak I sized down to 2.10. Added wobble eyes.
--Turtle was cut with Birthday Bash at 1.25 and hid the facial features so I could draw on.
--Grass was cut with EDPD at 1.76 x 6.89 (I cut the cattails off)
--Circles for lollipop was from Lacy Labels at . 1x1.04and cut 6x and glued together and pop dotted for depth and thickness. Then for the raised up middle of the lollipop, I just took the same circle and "squished it" (chain link off) at .12 x .75 and cut it 5x and glued together
--Graduation hat from Locker Talk and at 1.09 x 1.57, tassle at 1x.80
--Glasses from EDPD cut at 3.45 x 2.05
--Finally, an actual lollipop stick to be the lollipop stick and cut off slightly. Glued on with Scotch quick dry.
--Sentiment on the front "Snappy Birthday" from My Pink Stamper "More Punny-licious
--Sentiment inside the card was computer/printer generated with Minya Nouvelle font
