CCEE and Pink Elephant

TGF, CCEE Cindy

This weeks CCEE Stampers, hostess Charlene Merrick has given us an inspiration challenge. We were instructed to go to Anna Wight’s photo gallery blog and select a photo to use for inspiration for our cards.

I picked this photo called Faces. Anna's sweet photo reminds me of Sweet Ian with his hat pulled over his eyes!!!

I find inspirational challenges hard, and usually just pull the colors in the inspirational piece. This time I went for the image!!!!!

fll;flfgk

I also just had to do the sketch from The Pink Elephant. I can never resist a Sketch Challenge.

Batter Ian is from The Greeting Farm, he is so sweet and reminds me of my Grandsons!!!!!

Things I used on my card:

  • STAMPS: The Greeting Farm (Batter Ian)
  • INK: Copic Markers
  • PAPER: Dp, orange
  • Ribbon, spellbinder dies, brad
  • Thanks for stopping by!!!

    Hugs Cindy xxoo
