Welcome to another FireCracker Designs by Pamela blog hop!! You hopefully came here by way of Pamela - if not, you probably will want to back up. There is a yummy prize hidden somewhere along the hop, and you don't want to miss it - so make sure you hit each and every blog along the way!! The theme for today's hop is "Atypical Artwork" - taking stamps and using them in a new way, different from how they were intended. How fun is that?? So - can you tell what I did? I took the leaf stamps from the Stinking of You set and created a butterfly! I thought he was a very elegant butterfly, so I paired him with this gorgeous frame I picked up a couple of days ago at Joann's, made by K&Co. The Script Cuttlebug folder is also new to me, and I LOVE it! The quote inside the frame is from the Forgive Me? set. As I was creating the butterfly, cutting out the body that I just made up as I cut, I was debating about whether or not he needed antennae. I looked at the set again, and thought the little dandelions could make interesting antennae. But, I didn't think they'd go with my elegant butterfly. Then I noticed the little egg in the set, and for whatever reason I got a vision of a little caterpillar made out of eggs and dandelions. :-) So, I couldn't go to bed until I made a second card! :-) I colored him in to resemble The Very Hungry Caterpillar, one of our favorite children's books. The other thing to point out about this second card is that it uses the latest Weekend Sketch Challenge, this time hosted by Sharon Harnist.
Alrighty, have I kept you here long enough with my babbling?? Ready to hop on to the next blog?? Then head on over and check out what Julie did - I'm fairly confident that it's going to be AMAZING!! That Julie sure can stamp! :-) And just a little reminder (reminder because no doubt you already read this on Pamela's blog!) - you have until Wednesday, April 29 at 7:00pm CST to finish hopping and get entered into the drawing. Got it? Good! Thanks for stopping by today!!
