A Short Stack and a Hooray!

Good morning!

Got a bunch of cards to post, so let's get rolling!

First up, for Susan's One-Layer Wednesday challenge -- this week, it's to incorporate repetition:


Seriously, someone needs to stop me -- I can't stop using Say it with Style! Here, I used a pile of SU ink colors to make a smiley rainbow :)  This would be fun to repeat using a bunch of sentiments as a nice little set, I think.

Next, for Scrappy Chic:

A quick pair of matching cards, using Little Yellow Bicycle's Snugglebug line -- great for welcoming a new little one! Those alpha stickers are from Sassafras, and they're sparkly irl.

Finally, also for Scrappy Chic:

Aw, ain't he cute? The stamps are from October Afternoon, and I pieced the images and hills using the same paper line as above. I also broke out the Copics to color in the skin and hair. Scrappy Chic will be carrying Copic Ciao markers now -- very cool! I'm glad Chris went with the Ciaos -- they're less expensive (tee hee). I'm by no means a pro with these things, but they do blend very nicely and, since they're alcohol-based, they lay down very smoothly, without lines. That's good for me, because I've always been a bad colorer -- one day, maybe I'll tell my kindergarten coloring story....

Anyway, now for the Hooray!  I made the final round of the Clean and Simple Summer design team search. Whew! I spent some really fun time on the forum last night, stalking and chatting with the other semi-finalists (all of whom are totally talented!). One more challenge to go...time to get the inspiration flowing again! Wish me luck.

Later, folks -- enjoy your day!
