I've got my eye on you... (SACC53)

This week J.W. Illustrations is generously sponsoring our challenge.

Thank you so much for your support!

This is a card for a little guy who turns one next month. I think he'll enjoy chewing on it. :) 

This is a digi from Jessica's Monster Mongrels collection. They are so cute!! I went to put a squiggle eye on him and can't find them so just now that before I give away this card there will be a squiggly eye on it. :)

The card base is Real Red and the papers are from DCWV's Birthday Wishes stack. Let me tell you, cutting those triangles was HARD. Never in a million years thought I would have as much trouble with those as I did. Think I wasted about half the stack trying to figure it out. Will definitely do a little research before trying those again. 

My monster is colored up with Prismacolor pencils. I initially left him less blended; I like the "childish" look it creates. The sentiments are typed up on my computer. 

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.

  14. So cute and fun!!!

    Thank you for joining us at Craftin Desert Divas!!!

  15. What a fun card Alycia! Even more so, what a lovely blog you have - I just spent a good while reading through. Totally agree with you about Paris, no doubt you go to Sacre Coeur - so beautiful and such good views of Paris on a clear day. Just linked in to follow you - on your blog, not to Paris :)

    You asked about pyramage. You can buy ready designed kits like I used but one trick is to (say) print three or four images all the same and then trim those down in little steps before layering on top of one another with sticky pads or silicon glue.

    And why not come and play with us in the Snippets Playground? It's a fun place, you just use a scrap or two on your card or whatever - runs Sunday to Saturday lunchtime (UK time). Would love to see you there/here :)

    Enjoy your trip to the Netherlands and Paris. I lived in Germany for a lot of years and Holland was such fun to visit.

    Happy Easter!

    Hugs, Di xx
