3x3 challenge card

It looks like I'm a little late getting my challenge card up, most of the other Prettie girls got theirs up last night or this morning! Oh well, no one ever accused me of being punctual:-)

This challenge was issued by Jodi to make a 3x3 card, and I have to say, it was so much fun! I love how easy it came together. I've had this color combo in my head for the last week for some reason and I've been trying to think of a card to use our little bird from Rainy Day Friends on, so I just combined everything I've been wanting to do and came up with this!:-) I think I will definitely be making more 3x3 cards in the future, I love how small and cute they are. Thanks Jodi for a great challenge!

Now it is my turn to give the challenge, heheheee (that's my evil laugh incase you can't tell). A couple of weeks ago I was clicking around on SplitcoastStampers and discovered their resource page! Why have I not heard about it before? I can't believe all of the fantastic ideas you can get from it! I spent at least an hour just going through all of them and looking at the examples people have made. Ever since than I've been dying to try one of their mini album tutorials. They have three or four to choose from, and I can't make up my mind which one to do! So my challenge to you is to pick one of the mini album tutorials on Splitcoast and make one. I'm hoping this way every one will do something different and I'll get even more ideas;-) Hope you guys enjoy the challenge!

So next week we'll be doing Jessie's challenge to use at least three embellishments (I'm a little scared of this one) and the following week will be my mini album challenge:-)

Happy Wednesday to you all, 'see' you tomorrow!

Hi! I found you via Donna's link. I've been drawing for a stamp company as well, so it's neat to find another fellow illustrator blogging.

I've only made a few stamped cards myself and hope to get into it more some day soon. These challenges seem like a great place to start.
