Cut It Up Challenges

Hello and happy May Day.  I loved May Day when my son was little.  It was so much fun leaving a little gift for the neighbors and my son's friends.

It is time to start a new challenge over at Cut It Up.  I picked the theme and I must say it was a challenge.  When I picked it 2 or 3 months ago, I had all kinds of ideas.  When I sat down to do it, my mind was blank.

I finally decided on the cute denim pocket from Bugaboo.  Instead of fuss cutting the pocket, I put the image in my Silhouette software and had my machine cut it for me.  It is so much easier that way.  Go over to Bugaboo and search for pocket and there are all different kinds with flowers.
I colored my image with my copics and then added some Wink of Stella shimmer.  The second layer is stamped with a 'thinking of you' stamp from MorningStar.  The stamping isn't completely even but I like it imperfect (like me).  The third layer is just standard size (4 X5 1/4).  A quick card but I like it just the way it is.

The Cut It Up Challenge Theme is Paper Piecing.  It is sponsored by Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons.  They are offering a $15 gift certificate.  It runs May 1st through May 13th.  Lot of time to make a great card.  I really hope to see you over there.

We also have some new design team members.  Make sure to check out their blogs. 

Have a great day and I will chat with you after work.
