Dinosaur card and some news

Hello and welcome to my design team post for MTME's Pretty Patterns challenge.  The news I have for you is kind of sad if you have been enjoying the MTME challenges. They have decided to discontinue the challenges so this is my last DT post for them.  I will, however, still use My Time Made Easy's products because they are just THAT awesome!   

I had a lot of fun making this card.  For the dinosaur image I used Not So Dangerous Dinos.  If you click onto the link it will take you to the store where you can see all 5 of the digi dinos included in this set.  You'll also see some images of a 3-D dinosaur that you can make when adding the dinosaur head with Crazy for Candy  pretty packaging template.  Even if you don't have an electronic cutter for the cut files, this set includes a PDF of the instructions and templates so you can print, cut and assemble your own!

I used Spellbinders Decorative Labels One and Spellbinder's Circles to make the frame.  The digi papers I used on this card are: MTME Minty Chocolate and Un-Wined Vinyard.  The copics I used for this cute little guy are:  BG11, BG13, BG49, RV000, RV00, R81, R83, Y00, Y11  

Please hop on over to the MTME Blog and see what the other designers have made for you to enjoy.  While you are there, I hope you will take a look at the sketch and play along with us!  Let's make this last challenge the BEST!

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment.  I truly appreciate each and every visit and comment.

Princess Jenn

I named this card Princess Jenn because it is going to a very amazing young lady in CT named Jenn.  Jenn is a very special girl with very special needs.  She also has some severe medical problems and is going through a rough time right now.  She LOVES receiving cards so I am making some to send to her.  I'm sure she will like this princess.

For the princess image I used MTME's new digi stamp set Something Magical.  I colored her with copics and cut her out with Spellbinders.

Here's a close-up of the princess.  I've been soooooo tempted to add glitter to her crown and dress but I'm not sure if it's a good idea.  I don't know if Jenn's mom would want glitter all over the house!  *smile*

Here is the angle view so you can see that I popped up the princess and the frame with pop dots.  I love the 3-dimensional look.  The patterned paper I used is from the new MTME digi paper pack Pretty Princess Paper.

Thank you for coming by my blog!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend and please stop by the MTME Pretty Patterns blog post to see what the other design team members have made for you.  I apologize for being so late with my post.  I've been dealing with illness but am glad to have the opportunity to be a part of the MTME Pretty Patterns team.

AND: if you haven't seen My Time Made Easy's February release yet then you NEED to go over and see it!  Don't walk - RUN!!!  *smile*  Lauren has a FREE template for you today as well!
