Cre8tivegirls Blogoversary Blog Hop Day 3!

Welcome to day 3 of the Cre8tivegirls Blogoversary Blog Hop! Sadly, this is the last day! It has been so much fun celebrating Yvette's first blog anniversary with our own "firsts". Doing something new these last few days has been really great and has stretched me some ;-) .

If you've arrived from Doris' blog, you are in the right place! If not, you will want to start at the beginning at Yvette's blog. Be sure to wish her a Happy Blog Anniversary!

This is my first center step card. Check out this link for easy to follow instructions on how to make this card. It's very simple and quick to make the base card. Picking out your patterned paper, embellishments and main focus of the card will take more time. At least it takes me more time - a lot of time, lol!

This is also the first time I have used this incredibly cute and funny digital image and sentiment! From the moment I saw it I knew I HAD to use it soon! Isn't it hilarious?? This digital image/sentiment was a freebie from the marvelous Marlooney (Marlene). Thanks so much Marlene!! Check out her blog here!

Although I'm sure I will have plenty of opportunities to use this card (I should have about 20 of these on hand, at least!), I am choosing to keep it in my craft space! It makes me smile every time I look at it!

To make this card I used:
digital stamp image/sentiment from Marlooney
Basic Grey Offbeat collection - paper and cardstock stickers
Copic markers

Another first for me is that I used patterned paper in my digital image. I printed the image on white cardstock and on patterned paper. Then I cut out the dress from the patterned paper and glued it to the image on the white cardstock. Then of course I colored the rest of the image with Copic markers.

I hope you enjoyed my card and had a laugh! Boy, do we need a laugh now a days!

Be sure to hop on over to Paula's blog and see what she has created for the last day of this fabulous blog hop!
