Aren't Monday's Challeging Enough???

I am back and I am combining 2 Challenges in this post today.
The challenge on DRS was to make a project using your
favorite technique(s). I LOVE to make cards with FUN FOLDS and this stair step card was really fun! I stamped
and cut out a bunch of these little Piggies and colored them
(another FAVE)with Copic markers and SHIMMERZ and cut them out. I pasted them all over
the stair steps to make it look like a million dancing piggies

are wishing you a happy birthday! I LOVE the way this turned out and I know just who will get this card with a chorus of happy dancing pigs saying that NO WAY are you that old! now that is what I love to hear!!!! Please play along with this challenge and show us a technique that is your fave! See all of the details here... there is a chance to win some fun candy!

I used stamps Leonard and Hogwash





Here is another view of this card to see the folds and the dimension!




















The next challenge was featured at Paper Makeup stamps!
We were challenged to make a bookmark. I NEVER knew there were so many types of bookmarks available! I made this one by using my nesties to cut the ovals and layer them. then I stamped ARGUS and colored him to match my paper. I cut under his had with a craft knife to make him hold the READ sign. I put a bunch of glue around the ovals and added the feathers...HOW FUN! Then with sticky dots, I adhered the front to the back over a giatn paperclip and here is my bookmark! I hope you love it! I gotta tell ya, I totally get a kick out of this little guy! Please check out the PMS blog to see what the other gals have created! Please, feel free to play along with us as well... try some of the fun bookmarks and show us what ya did!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope the rest of the week will be just as challenging!
