"H" is for ... Hungry

     Another Friday, entrance to the weekend, and a fun new challenge at QKR Stampede.  Our theme this week is "Anything but a Card."   As I was mulling over the projects which I might do, I found myself in front of the refrigerator (where I spend waaay too much time!) and decided it was time for a new refrigerator magnet.  To say this is meant as a reminder specifically for me is probably unnecessary.  :-D  But the image from QKR Stamping (Digi 24204, "Snacking") was just so perfect and who could reisit it?


     I used a combination of Copics, ProMarkers and chalks to color him, then cut out the image and corner punched each corner.  Funny but that simple corner-rounding punch is probably the first one I ever bought and it's still my favorite despite all the others I've purchased over the years.

     I matted it with red CS and rounded those corners, too.  I layered the entire thing onto a sheet of magnet stock and cut it to fit.  I added the flower for some texture.  It measures 3.75" x 4" and is only about 1/16" thick.  Below is a shot of it on my refrigerator.


     Challenges:
CAS on Sunday
Come and Get It
Corrosive Challenge
Glitter n Sparkle
My Craft Creations
Paper Nest Dolls
Simon Says Stamp
Speed Craft
Through the Purple Haze
Whoopsi Daisy

     That's it for us today.  I hope you'll join in the challenge this week.  Remember, while you don't have to use a QKR image to enter, there is a separate and special drawing just for those who do use them and you increase your chances of winning tremendously!  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Oh you've got me laughing as I was just going to the fridge to get something for breakfast, like waffles which I eat with butter and sugar. I love your magnet and that little guy is just so darn cute and that flower is a beautiful addition. If I thought it would help me curtail some eating I'd make one too, but I don't think it will help in my case. Have a good day and go eat!!!

Gosh, Connie, this is too cute. I definitely need one of those. Who doesn't love to open the fridge and just stare into it wondering what they can eat. HAHA

Your little guy is just so adorable and fun and I got a laugh out of that sentiment.
