Mami Doodles Challenges

Hi y'all. How are you today. Finally, last night I feel like I get my mojo back a bit. Lately, I just been not feeling too well, and just didn't quite have the excitement that I normally have for making cards. I mean, I literally have quite a few new stamps that I just haven't even really play with. Hopefully, with me feeling better, I'll be back to my old self. :)

Let's start, shall we. Today I want to show you the latest digital stamp from mami Doodles. Elisa is just so talented and all she wants is for us to have fun while presenting her stuff. With the stuff that she came up with, it sure is easy to have fun. This particular image, she made it per my request.

I have this thing for snail. No, not the actual snail, but the image of snail. LOL. It first start when I found Suzy's Zoo. Love, love her stuff! I visited their corporate office in San Diego twice! And yes, that's my dream office. Wall full of cute drawings. I even named my pug, Ollie based on one of her characters.

Okay, okay, back to the snail story. One of Suzy's Zoo character is a snail. Then, when I was in Antwerp, Belgium, I found this cute snail stuff animal. From there, it just kind of love snail drawings. I even drawed one that actually made it into Suzy's Zoo newsletter magazine back in the day. So, I mentioned it to Elisa that it would be so lovely to have cute snail stamps.

And, Elisa came up with this Escargot set. Just adorable. What I did to make this card is simply flip the snail with the flower image so it's facing right instead of left. Here's my 1st card using Kazan's sketch:

The snail on the left, I layered it and I did on purpose resize the top layer just slightly smaller to create the illussion of movement. I thought it works pretty well. What do you think? Does it look like it moves, or it just my imagination? Could be that. :)

Now, for my second card, I resize the snails very small, since I want the "Best Friends" to be the main focus. I had so much fun coloring them. You can get them here.

I hope you'll join us for  our 2nd challenge. Go to Mami Doodles blog to check all the detail. The challenge is to create anything with garden theme and use at least 1 ribbon (which I missed, sorry about that). It can be any project and you don't have to use any of the images from this shop. You have till midnight, Wednesday 12th. Leaving comments on Mami Doodles blog, also give you a chance  to win prize. Go check it out!
I am looking forward to see what you come up with and don't forget to check out all the other Mami Doodles DT member created. As always, these girls amazed me.

You have anything plan this weekend? It's national Scrapbook Day! I am so hoping to complete a couple scrapbook pages (see, I am realistic, I said a couple not some), if my lazyness doesn't kick in. Hah... I am hoping for productive, but relaxing weekend and wish you all a happy weekend. Thanks for stopping by. TGIF!
