Group Hug


I finally got a chance today to play with the HH challenge from Sunday. You can play along here. This weeks challenge is a sketch challenge. I have a hard time with wavy borders!! I messed up 3 strips before I gave up and left off the border. The Bo bunny ruler has been on my wish list for awhile but I keep talking myself out of it!LOL! Today is also the OCC challenge and my friend Lori is a guest designer this week!! This weeks challenge is a coloring challenge! Right up my alley!LOL! I made this card for Laurie's and her family. Please keep her and her family in your prayers. You can read more about it here. A group hug always makes everything better doesnt it!??!
I colored the Group hug bears using gamsol magic and outlined with copic cool gray no.1. I used my oval nesties to cut and emboss the oval. I finally got a B plate to replace the one I broke!! I used my new Washington apple dp (Love it!!) and used the colors from it. I decided to use a strip of cs instead of ribbon and popped the sentiment up over it. I added some faux stitching with my pumpkin pie marker and silver brads for embellies.
Im so glad that Oct is over!!LOL!! I was counting down the days! We only have 1 more football games and practice left so I can finally have my Saturdays back too (at least for a couple of months)!! Dont forget about the H & M blog hop!! Have a great day.
