Hoot!

Happy Tuesday! I remember when I was a kid, I always looked forward to Tuesdays, because that was the night my favorite show - Who's The Boss? - was on tv. :o) I miss that show. I wanted to be Samantha in the worst way. I think I even had my friends call me "Sam" for awhile. lol!

Now my favorite thing about Tuesdays are the CBC Challenges! This week's challenge is a sketch challenge. Here's the challenge Courtney drew for this week:


And here is my take on it:


I just got my QT Hooty stamp set last week, and have been dying to get something made with it. I just love the clean lines of the Pink Cat Studio stamps, and I love to color, so they are a good match for me. I have always been meticulous about my coloring - I love it! I think my friend Deb can attest to this. Her daughter wanted me to color with her one day, and I think it took me an hour or more to finish my one page. lol! It had to be perfect! (P.S. Although the set is by PCS, I bought it from Mandy over at Limelight Papercrafts during her PCS sale!)

Once I got the main image on the card, I realized that it was larger than I thought and I didn't have room for the big circle in the sketch. I improvised with the leaf. I got these leaves in a package of about 12 from Hobby Lobby. They're felt, and about 1/4" thick. I thought they were pretty cool. I distressed the felt a little bit with my chocolate chip marker, and adhered it with mini glue dots. The background paper is by Basic Grey.

Be sure to click over to the other CBC Chick's blogs to see what they have created this week. And if you decide to play along, link your creation back to Courtney's blog for a chance to win a little prize. :o)

I also have a sale alert to pass on to you (you know I love a good sale!). Kate, over at i {heart} papers is offering 10% off everything in her store, and as always, orders over $40 get free shipping! Woot! The coupon code is thanksTEN, and it is good through 11/22.
