Wacky Watercooler Mini Blog Hop#1

Welcome!  You have likely arrived at this 
Wacky Watercooler Blog hop site after viewing Marie's
wonderful projects.  I know that you enjoyed them
because Marie is wonderfully talented!

Since this hop is circular, you can start anywhere and hop
until you've viewed all of the artists.

 First, my serious card.  I have a bunch of nephews and 
brother-in-laws, so am always in need of masculine birthday cards.
The Number of Years set, with coordinating Large Numbers
Framelits (page 10-11 of the 2016 Occasions mini) 
is a great set for boys or girls.

This was a very quick and easy card, with stamping and layering
of the elements.  I added a Lots of Labels Framelit layer (p173),
embossed with the Boho Chic Textured Embossing Folder
on page 174. Now I'm ready for my nephew's B-Day!


I affectionately call this my "crazy chick" card.  I have to
admit that the first time I looked at the SAB catalog and saw the "Honeycomb Happiness" set on page 15, this
idea popped into my head.  You know how you have friends
who have a series of tough breaks or difficult situations.
I was happy to see the "Oh, Hello" greeting because I knew
I could omit the "o" for a "different" sentiment. The raindrop
paper reminded me of tears.   Yes, my thought process
is twisted.

Please take note, the DSP on this card is the FREE
(with $50 product purchase) Wildflower Fields pack. Lovely paper!

So now that you've seen my projects, please hop forward
to see Buffy's delightful offerings.  She is an amazing artist.

Your cards are great. I especially like your little chick card. I just had to smile.

Great cards, Jackie! Love that little yellow chick. It always make me smile, too. It's one of my favorites from SAB.

Hi Jackie, that Number of Years card really pops. Love the colours you've used. The little chick card, however, steals the show. Love the new sentiment you created. Yes, there are definitely times that your sentiment would be more than appropriate. If your thought process is twisted then I'm part of the club. I'll probably be stealing this idea.

These are awesome, Jackie. I love your "Look who's turning" card, but your "Oh, Hell," card made me smile. We all have those days, and this is perfect!

Donna said...

Both cards are great, but I love everything about that adorable chick card, altered sentiment and all; ha ha! :) TFS with us!

Priscilla Ivler said...

Your nephew is gonna LOVE his card--every element is just right! Your Honeycomb Happiness card made me do a double take...and then I laughed out loud! I love the way your twisted mind works. Thanks for sharing!

Penny Hanuszak said...

Great cards Jackie. I love your thought process! Can't wait to get my number framelits, and will probably case your card when they arrive! That little chick just is simply the cutest and I love how you dropped the "o". TFS.

Judy Marshall said...

Such a cute chickie card! I laughed when I saw 'Oh Hell' I'm going to have to case that idea!! Thanks for sharing :)

Jeannie said...

Love your little chick card. How did you color him? Aquapainters with Crushed Curry I'm thinking? Let me know if I'm right! Love the other Number of Years card too, BTW!!

Jackie said...

Jeannie, you're exactly right aqua painter and crushed curry.
