Drunken Stampers #113

Good Morning and happy Saturday! It's time to have some fun with the DRUNKEN STAMPERS CHALLENGE BLOG, which I am proud to be a Designated Designer for! I am so stinkin' excited about this! (Doing the Happy Dance!!) A new challenge is posted every Saturday. This term is focused on movies and it can be an 'either or both' kind of challenge: you can EITHER use the movie title given OR the suggested theme/item. You can also get all crazy like and use BOTH! The DD's are divided into two groups: The Midnight Margaritas (my team!) and the Bahama Mamas. (LOL! I know, right?!) The teams alternate each week to showcase the new challenge.

Here is the challenge that the The Midnight Margaritas team are playing with this week: Groundhog Day (fitting for this month!) and/or a card with a furry creature on it!

So I plowed through all of my stamps, trying to find the perfect critter. Because this is a big deal! My first official post as a DD! Sweating bullets as set after set is thrown to the side, rejected. Sweating more bullets. Starting to hyperventilate. But then, I came across this little guy. (Insert a choir of angels singing here)

Here's the inside:

I was saved! Shew! (Calm, deep breaths. Ok. I'm good.) I embossed him on water color paper, colored, fussy cut, and adhered him to some stacked die cut ovals with foam squares. I even used the die as a stencil and sponged some moss green ink to the inside of the white oval. (something new that I tried!) Stamped Got Cake, fussy cut, matted onto the teal card stock and adhered that as well with the foam squares. Added some rhinestones and done! Easy Peasy!

Now it's YOUR turn! Please come and play with us on the Drunken Stampers challenge blog! Many great times will be had with these fabulous challenges! Be sure to check out my other partners in crime, I mean, my fellow bodacious design team members also!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a fabulous day!
