Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge 20

Hi!  Can you believe the Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge is up to number 20 already!  How time flies :-)

This week the challenge is to

Now when I started thinking about this challenge I was stumped (but then my creative brain was being impeeded by my boss needing this and that by 10 minutes ago...) then I got one idea and then another and then a lightbulb moment, and all of a sudden I'd got three cards!  No don't ask me either, it doesn't happen often!!   I suppose what I am trying to say is that this challenge sounds a bit of a toughy at first, but it is open to so much interpretation, so why not have a go?

OK, here are my cards (you might want to get a cuppa!)

First off I started thinking about my son and the never ending trail of teddy bears, monkeys, dragons, disney characters etc that he always has with him.  Each one is special to him in it's own way and this Mo Manning image seemed appropriate...

Isn't he a cutie :-)

Then I remembered my Gorjuss Girl had a bird with her, and the bird was her little friend...

And then I thought about using a small stamp and doing a really quick, simple card amd this Penny Black image seemed perfect - as the literal little friend :-)

I normally stamp my images onto white card, and rarely stamp and colour directly onto the card front but I quite like it. the only problem I had was that Copics do not come in white, so had to use a watercolour pencil to colour the envelope!

Are you still with me!  Sorry that was a long post, but I wanted to share all my little ideas on this challenge :-)

Have a great day, more tomorrow
