Congratoothlations!

Hello, hello!!! Oh my goodness - I know it hasn't been that long since I last blogged - but it sure feels like forever! I ended up pretty sick most of last week and just had zero energy to stamp :( and by the time the weekend rolled around - I had to get my kiddos ready for their first baseball games of the season and I did some cropping at Archiver's this weekend too (yes - I actually got some scrapping done this weekend - YAY!!). So - I've been using the past couple of days to play catch-up on some design team work - release time is upon us again - so starting this Friday - I'll have some yummy new Hanna eye candy for you!;) This afternoon though - I thought I'd get back into the swing of things by doing the SCS sketch challenge today - sketch challenges are a good place to start if you need to get that mojo a flowin' again, kwim? I had scene some REALLY cute cards done with these little plastic mazes you find in the party favor aisle at the store on Susan Liles' and Leigh O'brien's blogs (2 of my favorite stampers;)) and had been wanting to try it - but was having trouble finding those little plastic mazes - LOL!! I was grocery shopping (ick!) in Meijer this morning and finally found a pack of those circle mazes (I think I got 8 of them for like $1.77). I got home and popped one apart and it actually popped apart very easily - I took out the little circle cardboard picture inside and then cut a circle to fit inside of it - stamped my Our Craft Lounge Tooth Fairy on it - colored her and then put my new image inside of it and put the maze back together. Pretty cool, huh?? My son LOVES these little mazes - so I'll be putting this card up for him (we're still waiting on that first visit from the tooth fairy). I used the sketch from today's challenge for the layout of my card - you can view it here. All images are from the Our Craft Lounge "Tooth Fairy Fun" set and colored with Copics (except for the teeth on the light purple panel - I colored those in with a white gel pen) - I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment. The patterned paper is from the DCWV Pocket Full of Posies stack.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Oh - and don't forget to swing by the MFT forum and vote for your favorite MFT Idol - the Top 5 have outdone themselves and the competition is getting fierce - here's a link to go vote!!!!

Oh what a clever idea! I know I have some of those mazes somewhere, I am going to have to dig them out to play with. Love the tooth fairy theme.
