Here's my creation. I have lots of video game addicts in my family. My brother also works in the video game industry... so this was just perfect for me. I had purchased an image from Mo Manning back during the holidays... I think that's when she had the sale, anyway initially I wanted to use it for one of my son's b-day card... but then I did some other ones. So this was my chance to finally do something with it!
Don't forget to press the read more for the rest of the post
For this card I used some papers from Basic Grey - Oxford. I did lots of layering and distressed all the papers with my Tim Holtz distresser. I thought it was missing something when I finished.... and decided to use some of those little bingo chips ;) it finished it up nicely!!! It's the 1st time that I use them... my dad gave them to me but I seem to keep them... and just love the look of them. So finally I have done something with them. I have used my small and large squares from Spellbinder to make this.
Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored with my copics. The sentiment that was just perfect for this is from Create with TLC and it's soooo true! Everything is better in a video game... even if it's cleaning or whatever... if you have ever played the "Sims" you know what I'm talking about.
Your next stop along the way of the calendar is Sandy. Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on August 10, 2013, for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
- Loves rubber stamps challenges - Use a hoarded item ( the bingo chips)
- Paper minutes - Anything goes
- Lexis creations - For a friend ( this is going to be a card for a friend of my boys! It's so hard to make cards for teenage boys - at least I find...)
Hope you have a great Saturday!!! I'm going to be enjoying my vacation ;o) I have another post coming up so hope you will be back for it.
