HIMCR #156 - Weddings

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!

Here it is the last Saturday once again . . . and you know what that means?

That's right . . . it's time for a new challenge over at 

This week's theme is "Weddings" and our sponsor is:

And the giveaway is $20 Gift Certificate to The Paper Shelter!!!

For this week's challenge, I chose "Crocodile Love" for my digi image from The Paper Shelter . . . what I really liked about this image (and all the images from The Paper Shelter) is you usually get both a colored image and an inked image (black and white for you to color yourself).  So this week, I decided to use the colored image because it matched perfectly with the paper I wanted to use - "For the Record 2" 6x6 paper pad by Echo Park.  Here's how it turned out:

In addition to "For the Record 2" 6x6 paper pad, I also used Cryogen White paper from Paper Temptress to print my image on . . . not only do I LOVE this paper when I am coloring an image with my Copics, but it also prints pre-colored images really good, too.  I also LOVE the Croygen White paper because it has a subtle shimmer to it . . . it is hard to get it to show up in a photo, but it is there and it is gorgeous. :) I also used "Honeydew" solid twine and "Peapod" stripe twine from The Twinery, red ribbon (cut crinkle ribbon in 1/4-1/2" and pulled apart to fray it) from 3 Girl Jam and red "skittles" from DoubleClick - AKA A Busy Bee.  

For the sentiment, I used the "Stolen Moments" sticker from the "Paint It! with Luminarte" stickers by Creative Imaginations . . . they are specially coated (?) so you can use Luminarte (and other sprays) on them. I chose this sentiment for an anniversary card because I wanted to remind them to always take time and cherish those "stolen moments" . . . those of you with young children (or have had young children) understand what I am talking about.  Even if you have older children, it is still challenging for find those moments due to such busy schedules.

Remember, you have till Saturday, July 5th at 2:00am PST to get your projects in to be eligible for the gift certificate to The Paper Shelter.  Hope to see you all join us this week!!!

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

12/26/14 - updated where my red "skittles" came from. I couldn't remember at the time. But when I made my little ornament a couple weeks ago, I remembered . . . but have just now had time to go back and fix it. :)  Hope it helps those who have emailed me asking where I got them.  Have a Merry Christmas (or whatever holiday you may or may not celebrate at this time of year) and a Happy New Year!!!
