It’s been a while since my JiFFy friends and I posted, so just to refresh your memory (or if you’re new to my blog), once a month one of us chooses patterned paper and sends to all. Once the paper is en route, another of us reveals the image we are to use. We never know what we’re getting until we’ve got it. Sometimes it’s quite a challenge, but it’s always Just For Fun….usually.
This month Julie chose Sweetest Day by Unity. And Carole, just by coincidence, selected the perfect coordinating paper, Echo Park’s “Madison Plaid” from their Little Girl Collection. But as cute as that strawberry is, we just did not get along. And once I finally had it colored and was somewhat satisfied with my results (keyword=somewhat), I had a hard time deciding what to do with it.
Wishing You the Sweetest Day Ever
I played with the color of the strawberry so many times, I don’t even know which markers I used. I ended up coloring the seeds with a 3-d glaze pen and the strawberry piece is popped up on foam boosters. The sentiment is bent a bit into a ‘blowing flag’ type shape but that isn’t clear in the photo.
Aside from my “eh” card, I hope you’ll check out what the other JiFFy girls came up with using this same image and paper. I’m sure theirs are MUCH better than mine! Also, we have a fabby guest this month, Carolyn King! So fun to have her play along!
Thanks SO much for stopping by! Have a great day!
