Paper Garden Bday Blog Bash Week 1 Challenge

When I read on Mel's blog about Cathy's Bday bash giveaway's and saw the challenge for week 1 was to make a funny card, the Little Paper Shop Granny set came to mind right away. I hope it's ok to use a set not sold at The Paper Garden. I combined this challenge with SCS SC218.


Stamp set - LPS Still Hot Granny, SU Stitched BG
Papers - Baja Breeze, WW, Chocolate Chip, PP - Basic Grey Offbeat - unexpected
Ink - Brilliance Graphite Black
Accessories - Copic BG72 (matches baja breeze perfectly), blender pen, SU markers, nesties label 2

I shadowed the main nestie with baja breeze by cutting it in half and putting behind the white panel. I saw this on Cambria Turnbow's blog and loved the look and now I'll over use that. :O)

I'm taking a copic class this Sat. morning and hope to finally learn how to colour and maybe purchase more Copics if I get the hang of colouring with them.

Fun challenge Cathy!

This is an awesome card! I love that little old lady stamp! The colors are great and I'll have to remember the Nesties tip.

Thanks for playing along!

Hey Kim,
For the first time in a long time, I'm home without bringing work and I'm heading down to play and soon as I'm done here!!
Love the Granny! She just makes me chuckle. Great colouring as well. Love the background paper and what a clever little tip there from Cambria!
I hope that you have an excellent Copic class. If I were closer, I'd join you. They're so nice to work with but I'd love to learn more.
Have a great week... Until next post..
