Challenges entered with this card:
Peachy Keen Stamps' Let's Face It Fridays - So Punny!:
Puns are fun, and even more perfect when paired with Peachy Keen Faces! This week, create a project using your PKS faces and along with any pun you'd like.
Cricut Cardz Challenge #86 - Tuitti Fruitti: Make a card using fruit, and you may use any cartridges, colors or occasion you'd like.
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #71 - Let's Be Friends: It's Friendship Day! Create a fun project for a friend.
The main inspiration for this card came from the sentiment I used. Since the theme for PKS' challenge was using a pun, and the Cricut Cardz' challenge was to use fruit in the card, the "In a Jam?" was perfect! I was able to convey a look of uneasiness and unsureness (is that even a word?) using my awesome PKS "Everyday Character Faces" set (love me some Peachy Keen!), and my application of Stickles was far less heavy-handed than usual ;) I am also enjoying the new sizing of the cards I am creating - the 4 x 9 is a bit more unique and I'm enjoying the challenges of arranging my cuts and sentiments on the card.
I hope you enjoyed viewing my project! Thank you for visiting!
Until next time,
