Wherever You Go

It's a Happy Day for the Design Team members from 
2 Crafty Critter Crazies as we have found a new 'owner'!  Doris - known by the blogger name Kleido - will be taking over the admin for us and making a few changes too.  

We will continue to run 2CCC with the new name CRITTER CRAZY  and look forward to many more years with you. Check out our new admin under team tab along with all the other Design Team cards for October. 

Also now we will be using our own images (not sponsor supported) and all our challenges will be Anything Goes.

For my October project card I am sharing this Lion card that I made for my Grandson who just turned 14.  There is so much peer pressure these days on our kids and grandkids.  I wanted to use the scripture from Joshua and thought the image of the Lion would be a great choice.

 I used the free coloring page lion from Elizabeth Dulemba and the scripture was printed from Pinterest and both were sized to fit the front of my  4" x 6" card front.

After printing on Neenah 110# cardstock, I used Copic markers for coloring and the Gina Marie Designs Drop Pendant Die for both the images and the deep red matting. I used a chocolate brown cardstock for the card base, then added a black mat that was cut 1/8" smaller than the card base.  Next I added the orange arrow patterned mat, also cut 1/8" smaller than the black mat; followed by the two pendant shaped pieces.

It really turned out masculine yet not too 'old' for a young teenager.  The 4" x 6" size gave me plenty of room to write to him about being a leader, not a follower and also about how proud I am of the young man he is quickly becoming.  Encouraging our kids is so very important.  

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
