Oldie But Goodie

Good morning! It's Oldie But Goodie Thursday at Catch the Bug and I'm using Cat Rat Birthday.

I made this card for my daughter's boyfriend's birthday. His favorite color is green and I knew I wanted it to have an orange cat on it, so I went hunting through my images for the perfect one. (A little background on the "orange cat"....We have an orange cat named Wendel and Carter just loves him! When the kids come home from school for the weekend, playing with Wendel is at the top of the list. It's fun to see the softer side of a young man! I do realize this doesn't really look like a card for a young man, but Carter did understand the "Wendel" connection!) I've colored the image with pencils and restrained myself from glittering it! I used some birthday themed papers from a 6x6 pad and added a bit of ribbon for embellishing. Here's a close-up:

Catch the Bug ABC

Good morning! It's Anything But a Card Monday at Catch the Bug. I've decorated a sorbetto container and filled it with candy corn. (I went to buy a pint of Ben and Jerry's after work one night and walked out with 2 pints of Talenti...I recommend it! I need to go back for 2 more pints so I can make enough for all my daughter's roommates at school!)

The supplies:

Bobblehead Ghost (one of Jodie's new Halloween images!) is colored with pencils and accented with glitter and googlie eyes, then die cut and mounted with Spellbinders. I adhered a patterned paper band around the container and adhered the image panel over the top. Here's a close-up of the image:
