BBTB Pencil Challenge & Card a Day #6
This week at Bitten by the Bug Regina chose the pencil from the My Community cartridge. Although I don't have this cartridge I managed to participate anyway using my trusty design studio and good old George (borrowed from Leah xx). Afterwards I realized it looked more like the pencil in Locker Talk but I didn't think anybody would mind. LOL I also designed a shadow that I cut in both red and black, then cut the pencil in pink, again in Stampin'Up designer paper that I trimmed to expose the eraser and the sharpened tip, and the silver eraser holder. A little doodling, a little ribbon, and viola!..a pencil. The hearts and xo are from Calligraphy, flowers are prima and of course alpha beads (my current fave). I was missing an "s" yesterday so I couldn't finish this card but now I'm current on Jen's "card a day" challenge. Be sure to stop by Bitten by the Bug to see what all of the fabulous designers did with this challenge and also Jen's blog (she just happens to be one of those fabulous designers) to see how she's coming along. I may just give this one to DH since that's how I sign all of my cards to him and the poor guy got store bought for both Christmas and his birthday. We'll see. wow this card looks pretty good with my new blog color scheme. Maybe I should stick to red, white, and black all month.
