Do you have a wild thing inside you? ;)

Coffee of the Day - Coconut Macadamia

I hit panic mode just a little bit ago when I realized that Mick leaves for school tomorrow and I didn't have a card for him..... eek! so I remembered that there is a fun DT call-out going on over at Paper Makeup Stamps that I had been thinking of trying for, but hadn't gotten around to since I had been feeling ick. the cutie little monster was the perfect image for my card for him! and Paulette at Create with TLC had just the ideal senti to go with this guy..... or at least I thought so for a guy heading out to college. just the thing for a momma monster to say.... you may have a wild thing inside you, but momma's on FaceBook now and finds out what happens while you're away! grins!!! he'll get a kick out of it and know I'm goofing with him.


Papers are from October Afternoon Night Light collection, as are the fun little embellies that I added. (buttons and ribbons are mine from stash) I did add some stickles to the monster's spots for just a dash of sparkle.
This card is a fun new size for me - 3" x 4 1/4" - the remainder when you make a 5 1/2" square card. a fellow DT member showed me this great trick for using scraps! isn't it cool?! just the right size to tuck into a suitcase, lunchbox, briefcase, or gift. I know I'll be making lots more of these!

One of the things I'm supposed to do for the DT call is tell everyone why I enjoy digis so much. well if you are one of my regular blog followers, you know that I pretty much only use digital images for my papercraft projects these days. I do still use my regular stamps, but not as often. I love the ability to re-size images based on whatever project I happen to be making at the time. and each image can be made to a different size over and over again, sometimes for the exact same project! I like being able to flip them without special tools, too. and never again do I have to worry about whether the complete image is going to ink properly.... oh pure delight! ;)

now to go finish getting that never ending pile of laundry done that Mick seems to keep piling up..... but at least it keeps me busy and not crying in my pillow. that will be tomorrow night..... oh sigh......

*for another card I have made using Paper Makeup Stamps, you may see this post. thanks! :)
