Whimsie Doodles PCP weekly challenge: USE NUMBERS!


WOW, middle of the week and I am just posting this FINALLY tonight! UGH!  What a long day!  I can't even begin to tell you how UNproductive I am with all four kids at home for break!  I LOVE having them home, and have been giving them tons of kisses and hugs, but man, I can't even get the basic cleaning and cooking accomplished, it seems! LOL!

Today marks the beginning of yet another week long challenge at the Whimsie Doodles Paper Craft Planet group!  This week we are to use NUMBERS in our card in honor of counting down the days, hours and minutes of the rest of 2009!  CLICK HERE to see the challenge and all of the participants cards!

My entry is using a Rocking Horse by WHIMSIEDOODLES!  I used the wording from The Comets song 'Rock Around the Clock'!  I used the SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY sketch as inspiration for my card.  You should check them out if you ever get that MOJO stuck!  They have some awesome sketches!!!

OH!  My card! HA, I nearly forgot!!  I used Basic Grey's Wassail paper 6x6 paper set, some SUP buttons and metallic twine and nestibilities for scallops and squares and ovals.  Copic for coloring, of course!!  I tried to antique tea-dye it with my Copics on the image and sentiment, let me know what you think!!!

I hope you join us on PCP! 


HUGS to all!
