New Releases and a New Challenge at Jellypark Friends!

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice!!! yum, yum! :)

Today marks a new challenge as well as new releases over at Jellypark Friends! this is always exciting, as Claire draws just the cutest digis! I actually have 2 cards to show you, so let's get started....

My first card uses one of the new images, Space Rocket. paper is from an old K & Co. collection called Kazoo Kids. I love the retro/vintage feel to these papers and they were just perfect for this wonderful boy in his rocket ship! All of the little screws were dotted with a spica glitter pen & his helmet was covered in crystal effects to add a bit more dimension. the senti is a SU! rub-on. I thought the brads were fun and helped go along with the look of the screws.

For my next card, I chose to use an older image of Claire's, but am submitting it for the challenge - 'Pass it On'. (actually both cards are for the challenge) what we are asking everyone to do for the challenge is to create any kind of papercraft project that you will give to someone and then actually do it. it could be a gift bag, tag for a basket, card for a fundraiser, just something that you are going to give to another person. My card is actually for our oldest son's 21st birthday which is coming up in a few days. He has always been called a 'modern day knight' so this image was absolutely perfect for his birthday! The card has a bit of an old world feel to it, thanks in part to the papers, called Castle Tapestry. love the Celtic look to them! I wouldn't normally put lace and a big Prima on a card for Tyler, but with the regal feel to this card, I thought it worked. the metal castle charm was distressed with staz-on to take away a bit of the brightness. the senti is a bit hard to see, but it is a SU! rub-on as well. the card is legal size.

I look forward to seeing your creations for this fun challenge! and we welcome Sara Moreno as a guest Designer this month! please stop by her blog and give her a big Jellypark Friends welcome! :)
