You Go Girl!

Happy Friday!

I CANNOT believe we're already into the middle of August! Where on earth did the first 7 months go?! *scratching my head* I can't believe the cooler days are almost upon us! I still feel like I need more vitamin D in my skin! *sigh* As much as I love the Fall, I just don't think I'm ready for it this year.

I wanted to make a card that was a little fun and out of the ordinary for me, so I played with one of Jenny Bowlin's mini bingo cards!

I've never played with one before and embellie-challenged moi wasn't quite sure how to use them. :) I looked around blogland (love blogland!) and figured out that you just treat them as background patterned paper. Ohhhh! That was my light bulb moment! :) I've also been dying to try the layered scalloped look everyone's been doing lately. Only I don't own any of the die templates that make them (yet!), so I used my trusty corner punch, with the guard off. It doesn't produce a deep scallop but it still works.

Ooops! I almost forgot to mention sweet Mino! She's one of the cute kids from TGF's Roll Call kit. I almost forgot how to color in these Wild Sprouts, it's been so long! Out came the reinkers and aquapainter brush again and I borrowed last week's TESC123 for my layout. And because I'm on a roll with using up my old patterned paper, I used some sheets from Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl collection. Almost ready to buy me some new CC paper! :) hehehe

Hope you have a fabulous weekend whatever it is you're doing. We're heading to the Mall (it's 1.5hrs from us) to buy the Little Sunshine new clothes for the coming school year. I can't believe she starts school in three weeks! Eek!

PS: I finally got around to putting a few cards from this past couple of weeks (including this cutie) into the store! Need to make space for all that new paper I need to have! hahahha

I think you did a fab job of using the Jenny Bowlin card! It works soooo well with this layout and all the colors--makes such a lovely contrast. Another CA-UTE card, Dearie!
