Junk Challenge


This week's HM challenge was "junk." I'm getting this in right under the wire because I've had a very busy week. My junk drawer could have furnished an entire banner, so I decided on using a straw and my "Mice Cappucino" stamp of Monica, Maxwell and Mudpie. I colored it some with Copics and mostly with Prisma color pencils due to my small inventory of Copics and my lack of confidence in coloring with them thus far. The DT created some great cards, as always, so be sure to check out their creations, as well as everyone's that were submitted for the challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hate getting this in late, but I love the HM challenges and would rather be last minute than not participate. Tomorrow we get to see what this week's challenge is. Have a great evening.

Another PERFECT creation!!!! This adorable card made me smile instantly:o) I love the straw, and the whipped cream on the little's guys face is just too darling!!! Reminds me of the mess my boys made when they were younger:o) Your image is colored superbly, and the colors you selected are wonderful!!! I especially like the plaid DP...I think I have a golf skort with the same pattern:O)

Beautiful and sweet!!! There is no better combination!

Hugs!
