Hello everyone, it is time for another Digital Tuesday Challenge. This week our challenge is brought to us by Lora. Her challenge: ANYTHING BUT A CARD.
I am so excited to tell you that our sponsor for this week is
WOW, does she have some really sweet images. Her take on how cute food can be is just one example. She has the most adorable teen images named Kaylee, Mae and Kody and much more. You will be so glad that you checked out her store!
She also has generously donated a free stamp for the design team to use this week. Sadly, I forgot to use it!!! Why...You can read about at the bottom of the post. Another thing you will surely to be glad you know about! I will have to decided which image to use first. Though cute is not my usually style, I have been using them a lot lately. When I looked for which imagee I wanted for free, I could not decide on just one. So I bought 3 more, LOL
For my "anything but a card" I thought long and hard. Then...I came across this wonderful image and a great cause. Instantly I knew what I was going to make and make it with part of my stash I have had for over a year! YUP...I have stuff that old, LOL. How about you??? Do you have items you were sure you NEEDED, then did not remember what project you saw that required it? And...now it is still sitting in your stash. This challenge is the perfect time to use them.
My husband is always leaving several magazines on his living room side table. They even over flow onto the floor some times. And...when I want the TV Guide, I need to search for it, LOL What he needs near his table is a TV Guide/Magazine holder by his chair. So that is what I made using one of those really large clothes pins.
I must say that I am not sure how I like it. Actually, just part of it would I like to redo, the background behind the image. using the ultra strong Scor-tape, there is no way it is going to come off though.
See that most adorable stamp of our husband! I printed out 5 images, colored, cut and adhered together for a really nice dimensional look.
I must have been tired that day I made this. I forgot another thing. Usually I go around the edges of my cut layers with my black copic marker, but forgot this time. It really makes a difference, especially in the photos. In real life it is hard to tell unless you look hard.
Make sure to read the bottom of the post for more info on this image.
I wanted to use a charm on it for one of the challenges I wanted to do, so I checked out my stash and look what I found! Bwaaaa ha ha ha...I thought this would have a new meaning with the image. Even my husband who seldom laughs but does give a small chuckle every now and then, laughed about it. So I guess it is as funny as I thought it would be.
Onto why I used this image. While checking out last weeks entries and leaving comments, I ran across a post about this image. Here is what she says about it on her blog Crafty Emma:
