Whimsical Wednesday...Monster!

Wednesday, January 6, 2010

Good Morning!

Yesterday The Man decided to play hookie from work and stayed home with me. Can you guess what that does to my stamping time?? Yep, it went from a few hours to nought! But it was nice to spend some time together while the Miss Sweetie is in daycare. :) We went to breakfast and did a bit of grocery shopping, then putted around the house until it was time to get Miss Sweetie and take her to her audiology appointment. A couple of years ago she had a bad bout of ear infections that lead to tubes being put in her ears. They've since fallen out and they've closely monitored her ears to make sure her hearing hasn't been affected by all the infections. Thankfully she was given the all clear and we don't need to continue the visits unless the infections flare up again - which they haven't this winter at all. So thankful for that!

Today's Wednesday and that means I have another Whimsical Wednesday challenge for you! This week's challenge is an inspiration one and I know you're all going to want to play along!

It's the makeup collection of our very own Jessica Diedrich! None of my makeup looks this fancy! LOL (But I wish it would!) You can take ANY aspect of this image and create a card from it. And, like I said earlier, you'll want to play along this week because we have our very first sponsor and prize for 2010!! Paper Makeup Stamps is giving away some rubber to one random winner of this challenge! Wooohooo! Katie, the owner of PMS, generously gave each of the Daredevils a digi image to play with this month, so you'll see lots of great eye candy today.

I am a bit partial to monsters (which is really funny because when I was little, I was soooo afraid of those giant monster puppets on the Muppets) so I picked out this sad looking (but completely adorable at the same time) Boo Boo Monster from PMS's digi line. Don't you just want to hug him to make the pain go away?! Poor thing! So here's the lowdown on my 'slightly pink, but predominantly green' card: I picked some green polka dot paper and proceeded to color up Mr Boo Boo in green before I realised that we had an inspiration challenge this week and I had better take a peek at it before I went any further. It's a good thing I did because there's not a lick of green to be found in this image!! Bugger. So that's when I decided to switch out the patterned paper with something a little more suitable and call it a day! :) Go ahead and gong me if you like. I deserve it this week! Definitely check out the other digi monsters Katie has in her collection or the wonderful fairies scattered all throughout her store!

Check out what the other Daredevils have done with their digi images (I hear there are a few fairies out there!):

Now it's your turn! Create a card using the image as your inspiration and leave your name and a link to your creation in the Mr Linky at the bottom of the WW:DD post to be in with a chance to win your very own Paper Makeup rubber stamp! You have until next Tuesday, January 12th to get your card linked.

Thank you so much for popping by today!
