Love it! I was perusing some challenge blogs last week and the Inspired By photo caught my eye:
I thought the image would be fun to interpret for a birthday card for my “little” brother, who is turning 50 in a week or so!!! He’s an engineer and I thought the graphics in the papers and images I used would appeal to him:
I had a blast making this! I used River Rock ink and cardstock, which I rarely use, so it was fun to pull it out and dust it off! I used some Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 papers, stamping the numbers and the row of pencils (they’re a bit hard to see), in Stazon and River Rock inks, and then using a hexagon diecut for the sentiment panel. SU’s Itty Bitty Banners provided the sentiment and banner diecut, as well as the numbers from Timeless Type (retired).
I know he will be fascinated by these hexagons; he often likes to examine my stamping and diecutting tools and punches…that engineering brain of his, I guess!
I hope you’ll play along with us this week using Jaydee’s sketch! There are lots of possibilities for this one! Share it with us over at the Paper Players blog….can’t wait to see what you create!
Friends of my daughter’s made Cassidy some Pilgrim hat cookies last week. A striped fudge cookie was turned upside down, frosted in chocolate and had a chocolate-coated marshmallow stuck on top. The girls then piped a little band of icing around the bottom of the marshmallow to make a hat band. They were really cute, but Cassidy was not quite sure how to go about eating it. She knew how to eat the cookie, but I am not sure she had ever eaten a marshmallow before! By the time she was done, there was more chocolate on her than on the cookie!
Yum! Enjoy your day!
