Botz Family Blog Candy

Guess what I got in the mail on Saturday!??? YES!!!!!! My blog candy from Our Craft Lounge!!!! I used it for today's SCS challenge using rubberbands on an acrylic block to make a zig-zag background look. Well, as soon as I saw the sample card by Lynn in St. Louis, I KNEW what I wanted to do with it!


Did you see the little round smudge under the tire?? Talk about a happy accident! I didn't have any regular thick rubber bands, so I used KayLee's rubber bands for her hair! You know, those itty bitty baby hair rubber bands? Well, KayLee's hair is so fine and when you purchase them you get like 5000 in a box, so we are still going through those from 2004 when she finally had hair!

Well, when I went to stamp the rubber bands they ended up really thin, so I guess when I pressed the block down, I pushed the image of my finger onto the paper. When I saw the results of the platinum heat embossing, I knew it would be PERFECT for the tire's shadow! How about that!?

Click on the pic for details! Now, who's birthday is coming up???? Hmm.... oh yeah, THAT WOULD BE ME!!!!!!!!!!! I guess I will send it to myself! LOL!
