And now to my projects for today:
I’m not sure if there are any Project Lifers out there, but I am addicted to Project Life!!  I don’t normally share any PL stuff on my blog, but that may change in the future.  Today for my first project, I decided to take a few standard cards (from the Becky Higgins Blush Core Kit) and stamp them up using our new releases.  Here are the three cards I started with:
And here’s how I changed them up:
I used the Funny Farm Crew Set and Funny Farm Animal Sentiments on each one.  I used a stamp positioner to stamp the animal images, and then stamped the clear sentiments to match.  I thought these particular stamps and sentiments matched the cards and I can’t wait to use them in my PL albums!
Next up is a card that also uses the same sets as above:
I colored the feet with Copics and paper pieced the body with some matching paper.  Don’t you just love these punny sentiments?!
As always, Karen has some amazing Hop Specials that you should definitely take advantage of!
