Time To Get Hoppy

Supplies: Stamps: Stampendous Ink: memento tuxedo black Paper: GKD white Accessories: googly eyes, sewing machine, martha tag punch, sentiment computer generated CK journaling, American Crafts ribbon, thin twine, cuttlebug fly die cut, dimensionals, copic markers
Supplies: Stamps: Just Rite Paper: GKD white Ink: memento tuxedo black Accessories: copic markers, liquid applique
Guess what?!  I did it!! I made it on the summer CAS design team on SCS!  WAHOOOO!  I will be working with Jen (MissBoo) Challenge Hostess and Denise (resqbarbie) Challenge Co-Hostess, and Jennie (mocjen) & Debbie (mom2n2) on the design team.   I'm so excited to be working with these talented gals!  Our first challenge is:  A Play on Words: Ex. Have a Hoppy Birthday.  So I stuck with this example and made two cards.  The first being the hoppy frog.  I brought out the sewing machine for this one, and stitched his hopping trail.  I colored the frog with copics, added some googly eyes, and popped him up.  For the tag, I computer generated the sentiment and added a fly die cut from Cuttlebug.

The second card is inspired by my beer loving husband.  We even have a "Beer Fridge" in the basement!  He enjoys really hoppy is an acquired taste (that I don't know if I will ever acquire?!)  So that is where the beer card was inspired from.  I have a Quickutz die that I could have used, but wanted to do a one layer card.  I drew the glass of beer and colored it in with copics, and added liquid applique for the foam.  I dug deep for my Just Rite stamps and stamped the sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and if you have some time come play along with the challenge!  I would love to see your cards!
