The JiFFy Girls are Back!

Time for another Just For Fun challenge with my JiFFy friends!  This month Kim sent everyone “Slate” from Crate Paper’s Little Sprout Collection.  And Carole (appropriately :) ) chose Cuddle up Carter by My Favorite ThingsCuddle up Carter was designed as a charity set to benefit kids with Cerebral Palsy (like Carole’s son, Carter) via the non-profit Euro-Peds clinic ( in Pontiac, Michigan.   My Favorite Things is donating $2 from each set sold through September 2009.  How awesome is that?

Sweet Little Boy


I broke out the Prismacolor pencils for this one.  I wanted a softer look than I get from my Copics.  (I’m impatiently awaiting the availability of those lighter colors!)  Anyway, I roughened the edges a bit and sponged with some distress ink (mostly to tone down the brightness of the teal paper) and added some stitching.

Be sure to check out Lori, Julie, Kim, Carole and Alli‘s projects using these same papers and images.  As always, I can’t wait to see! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
