Crossing it Off my Bucket List - Adventures With Ellie

Crossing it Off my Bucket List

Happy Friday Bloggy Friends!

If you are in the East coast are you preparing for Hurricane Irene? It seems we are to get hit pretty seriously but we shall see. At my household we are prepared but am hoping it has a bigger bark then bite.

So Now what's up w/my title post. Well Each month I visit Hero Arts and say I am going to enter the challenge and never do well I am lying I did once but nothing came of it. So here I am giving it a go again.

I have a crafty bucket list (don't you) & one of them would be to be super lucky to be called one of the lucky Fresh Face winners. Wouldn't that just rock my crafty world. I'd probably be floating for weeks.

As I tell my kids you never know unless you try. So here I am. I went ahead and purchased one of the digital Die Cuts & since this theme was either for creature or cards for kids I thought of a Thank you card one of my kids could use.

I used "Its a Parade" & added different Hero Arts stamps to it. :

I used a few of my Hero arts stamps : You are the Best, Carte Postale, Dictionary Greetings & Eveyday Sayings.

I wanted to give the card a vintage feel and added little bits of elements from my stash that gave it that feel. Velvet ric rac, & twine. I also used a bit of crackle paint.

My son plans on giving this to his friend who is coming to celebrate w/him his 13th birthday & was a happy in his words this wasn't a "baby" card which made me giggle.

To be honest I had a stack of I guess "kiddie" cards so glad I made this one instead & will make a couple more "teenager" kind cards.

I guess I have to remember my boy is growing up too huh. Well if you are in the East coast I hope you stay safe & have a wonderful weekend!
