My granddaughter, Kaylee is turning 16 on July 31st. That oh so talented Cheryl Alger (Sassy Cheryl ) introduced us to a new character last week and my Kaylee wears hers just like this sometimes. Kaylee's nickname is Bug (short for Kaylee Bug) so I immediately knew this was the perfect image for her card. Cheryl calls her image Jeni's Lady Bug (named after my BFF, Jeni) and you can get her here.
This week over at Sassy Cheryl's, Miz Judy is seeing polka dots everywhere. Now everyone who knows Sassy Cheryl knows that polka dots are synonymous with Sassy Cheryl creations. I chose to do mine in bright lime green and black. My granddaughter Ashley made that selection and I think she has a real eye for color. Don't you?
I made an easel card because Kaylee likes to display her cards in her bedroom. This one is a little different because the back of the easel actually has a little shelf. I cut my ribbon and taped it to the back of the card. Then I realized the back shows on an Easel Card so I made an extra fold to cover that up and that created a little box like shelf. Pretty cool actually. You could display all kinds of goodies, but I wanted this card to be clean and simple. My Kaylee is not a fru fru type of gal. The paper is all from my stash. The digi is printed on my favorite coloring paper Cryogen White from The Paper Temptress. The ribbon is from Stampin UP, flower is Recollections and the charm is a Jewelry Basics from Cousin I picked up at AC Moore. I attached the charm with a piece of black wire and curled the ends with my pointy sticky tool from Making Memories.
The sentiments are computer generated in MS Word 2010. They are my first solo attempt after Jeni helped me figure out how to create Circular Word Art in MS Word 2010. Here's a close-up for your to critique.
That's about it for this post. I sure am proud to have made 3 posts this week. Wonder if I can do that again next week. Nah, probably not, but check back with me just to see. Thanks for popping in and Happy Crafting!
