HIMCR #145 Super Scraps Saturday

Hi, all my crafty friends and family?

It's the 2nd Saturday of the month and do you know what that means?

It means not only is it time for another challenge over at Hiding In My Craft Room, but it also means that it is time for Super Scraps Saturday.  That's right!  This week your challenge is to use your scraps . . . and we all know we have scraps lying around.  Well, I know I do . . .which is why this is one of my all-time favorite challenges. :)  So get out your scissors, glue . . . and scraps and let's get crafty!

This week our sponsor is  My Besties! And the giveaway is all five (5) images the Hiding In My Craft Room Design Team is using this week.  How exciting is that?!?!!

This week I chose "Hope Girl" (#712) from Scrapbook Stampers Society/My Besties . . . which is available in their Etsy store.  I chose it because it reminded me of my daughter and a costume I had made for her when she was four (4) years old . . . remember "Gypsy" from "The Bug's Life"?  Anyway, using that for my inspiration, here's how my card turned out:

I used my scraps from "Oh, Darling" 6x6 paper pad from Crate Paper.  I also used my scraps of Iridescent Cyrogen paper and White Crepe (Ruche) paper from The Paper Temptress and gems from Prima along with my Copics.  

I also did a 2nd card because I was unsure as to which paper to print and color my image on because the Iridescent Cyrogen is more of an off-white color the the bright white of the regular Cyrogen paper. For my 2nd card, I used my scraps from "My Girl" 6x6 paper pad from MME and the same sketch that I not only used for my 1st card, but for several others cards in the past month or two . . . what can I say? . . . when I find something I like, I keep on using it. lol Anyway, \ here's how it turned out:

I'm not sure which card I like the best because one is more of a cooler color tone, where the other is more of a warm color tone.  But all-in-all, I am happy with the way BOTH of these cards turned out.

Remember, you have one (1) week to get your projects turned in at HIMCR to be eligible to win all five (5) images used this week by the HIMCR Design Team.

Till the next time I'm up in the night.

Both cards are fab. cute image and great colouring, (I'm just learning copics) At Scrapfest in Kitchener there was a copic specialist there and I learned quite a bit.

Both cards are lovely. They both have beautiful colouring and cheerful papers. I couldn't choose one if I had to :-)
