Bean Counters

     The Friday challenge over at The Outlawz has changed and is now a "Festive Friday" challenge.  Each week, four silly 'festivities' are chosen and you can use any one of them as the theme for your card.  This week the four things are:  Bean Day, Bird Day, Bubble Bath Day, and Polar Bear Plunge Day.  I chose this fun image by From the Heart Stamps because I could cover two of the four festive days.  :-D


I also used the sketch from The Outlawz.
Of course, I had to modify it for the shape of my image piece.


     I colored with my ProMarkers and added the sentiment.  I die cut it with one of my dies from Spellbinders.  I matted it with CS and rounded the corners with a punch.  Both ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the flower is from a new batch of white flowers I got from Santa.  Pretty fast and simple.

     Challenges:
Crafting by Designs
Crafting for all Seasons
Craft Rocket
Great Impressions
Jo's Scrap Shack
Julia Spiri
Male Room
Not Just Cards

Really Reasonable Ribbon
Scrapy Land

     That's it for me today.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
