Ok...FINALLY a card! This card is for the CCEE challenge a few gals and I do each Monday on Splitcoaststampers. This week, the zany Cindy (or Mothermark as she is known on SCS!) sent us these supplies:
Two sheet of this circle/yellow designer paper by My Mind's Eye
Two thin strips of the dp that she cut off because the sheets wouldn't fit in the mailing (! no comment!)
Three big brads
The Star by My Mind's Eye
We had to use all supplies (We could also use other dp but the one supplied must be used too)
We had to use a fish image (because she thought the dp looked like bubbles of course!)
The fish had to be inside of a circle shape
We had to take special note to USE the star and brads and not pretend we didn't see them (cough, cough...wonder who does THAT?!)
Here are my excuses as to why the main image is NOT a fish-
1. I have no fish images---seriously, out of HUNDREDS of stamps---not ONE fish --- Crazy!
2. Ok..fine....There was a big sweet fish in the center of the circle.....then all of the sudden, out of nowhere this huge pelican swooped in and snatched him up(Think NEMO scene where all the birds are shouting "Mine, mine!)
So it is in no way MY FAULT that the main image is just a pelican with parts of a fish (Poor Fishy!) I used the adorable bird from Gina K Designs and just sketched the fish in his mouth and the surrounding scene. The sentiment is from my first stamp collection. The images were colored with Prismacolor pencils and Copic markers.
I did use one of the little strips of designer paper Cindy enclosed in the package and probably thought no one would touch---(EXTRA CREDIT!) I just folded it back and forth and thought it made a funtastic embellishment over the sentiment!
I cannot wait to see what the other crazy girls came up with. You will be able to see all the cards for this challenge here. (They will be uploaded on Monday!)
Materials used: Pelican (Gina K Designs); sentiment (Carolyn King Collection I distributed by Gina K Designs); dp by My Mind's Eye; Bazzill dark blue cardstock (Boardwalk Collection); white cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Brilliance black ink; artist sketch pen; Copic markers; Prismacolor pencils; large brads; star (My Mind's Eye); ribbon, slit punch (Stampin' Up!); Cuttlebug and Nestabilities; pop dots and dimensionals (SU!).

I just heard that the May issue of Cardmaker Magazine is now out---I have a Father's Day card featured on page 66! (NOT that I have seen it yet!)
My Favorite Things is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, April 2 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern time. Lots of fun is planned including finding out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer.
