Fall Into Fashion



Good morning all! I am going to make this quick as I want to get to Michaels before the world starts getting up. That way I can look scrubbie and not do my hair ;)

So if you will remember, I predicted 200 entries for our Anything Goes challenge at Bee Crafty. Well I was WAY off and we had a total of 403. Oh my word! Thanks to all that played. I didn't get to everyones entries as I just couldn't keep up!!

This fortnightly (bi-weekly) challenge is Fall Into Fashion. This could be emphasis on a piece of clothing or anything to do with fasion.

I used "Contemporary Girl" and jazzed her up:


I tried to come up with a clever play on words, this is all I could come up with:

Card Ingredients:
Bee Crafty image; me & my BIG ideas animal print paper; Recollections cardstock; Copics; Circle Nestie; Craft Smart Brick Red ink; Celebrate It ribbon; Recollections and RAK gems; button; twine.


Conversation with husband:
me: Help me with a play on words - could be leopard, fashion, animals, lady.
husband: Happy Snowy Leopard Day!
me: No, that doesn't make sense. It has to be a PLAY on words. No one says that. Try again.
husband: Leisure Suit Leopard!
me: What the heck does that mean?
husband: I used to play a game called Leisure Suit Larry.
me: Nevermind...

Later...
me: I came up with one! It is kind of lame. You are grrrrreat! You know, because a leopard will growl.
husband: That doesn't even make sense.

So that was the end of that LOL! Needless to say, we had fun!


I had these fabbie challenges in mind when making this grrrreat card:

Thanks all for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend and I will see you all on Monday.
