Be Counted

Well I feel like I am still catching up from the birthday party week...did you see my post from the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party?  You don't want to miss the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake and Mickey Glove Balloon favors...the invite was nothing special, but I was pretty proud of the cake and favors.  So make sure to check it out if you missed it.  Anyway, like I said, trying to catch up...laundry still hasn't been started, but oh well!  I was happy, though, to be able to have a chance to get a little crafty...and what better way than with the most recent Freebie from Paper Makeup Stamps!

Yup remember how I said in my last post that Paper Makeup Stamps is doing Freebie Fridays? Well there is another great wordart up for grabs at the PMS Blog (or in the PMS Store...and while you are there, might as well browse the Inventory Reduction Sale going on!!).  I took the Be Counted Digi and opened it up in Photoshop Elements.  In that program, I was able to color the different parts of the digi in different go along with the Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge #324: Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, and Perfect Plum.  If you search in SCS, you can find files that have the RGB values to put in when coloring stuff so you get the SU! colors printed.  Pretty cool, right?!  Even cooler is the Cryogen White cardstock from Paper Temptress (which is on sale...30% Off) that I printed the wordart on has a beautiful sparkle that you can see in the detailed shot.

I also used the Clean and Simple Challenge #120 on SCS too.  It was a sketch challenge this week.  The bow should be offset for the sketch, but that just did not work with the wordart...just had to be centered.  Plus as a bonus, the SCS Free For All challenge #66 is to use something that you got for Free...well a Freebie Digi from PMS certainly qualifies!  So a very simple card to get myself back into to get to that to do list of cards I need to make!  Don't forget to submit for the Paper Makeup Stamps Design only have until June 4!!  Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
