I've been pretty busy with upcoming design team cards … today? I just needed a little time to play cards!
On my radar was the newest MFT Color Challenge #118 it's a wonderful way to push me through my fear of color!
That sweet little swing called my name again... yes, Bobby, I do have 73 more of those washers to use!! In case you don't follow me @mfergu01 on Instagram, I shared a great way to add weight to smallish die cuts that might not have room for the normal penny-weight. [even if they cost a bit more than a penny apiece!]
One of the Sweet Besties had a bit of fun... my latest swinger:
Stamped with Cement gray hybrid ink, Copic colored.
Did you ever swing on your belly? I sure did... today,
I'd have much more cushion for comfort! wink, wink. lol
Everyone knows when we swing, we leave behind the
footprints of our joy … that's where the Stitched Strip comes in - sadly this die is no longer available, but you could do the same thing with single stitch dies like these!
My trees were created using one of the MFT Scalloped Edge dies, cut from the top and bottom of some of their chevron paper to create the panel - which, coincidentally looks very much like the panel for the MFT Sketch Challenge 438!
Would you look at that! he hee.
All mounted onto my Grout Gray card base.
We are lucky to have a three day weekend coming up … to honor those who died for us in battle.
I'm grateful for their service.Hope you have a wonderful weekend … thanks always for spending a bit of your precious time visiting me here.
Stop by any time at all!
I love it when you play with gray and really love that you chose gray hybrid ink for your 'Swinger'! What a cutie she is, and of course you colored her beautifully, Michele! Clever idea to use your embossed stitches, too...Really fun card!
Great little swinger card Michele!love the shape and the sweet image too 😀 Viv
And who doesn't just need a little play time every now and then, you certainly looked like you were playing here.... hope she doesn't' fall off lol.
Weeeee, she looks like she' having a good time! Belly swinging as a kid was always fun, especially on an inner tube swing! This is super duper CUTE!
She could be me in an earlier life, Michele ... when swings were swung any way I could ... even tried to swing them so hard they'd take me right round and back again! She's adorable ... what a lovely playtime you had! Hugs, Anita :)
Super dupe cute! And sure I swung on my belly!!! Enjoy your weekend, my friend!
This cutie patootie sure makes me smile, Michele. I admire you for pushing past your comfort zone. You do wonderfully well with color! Be not afraid of it! I loved swinging when I was a kid. I still like it a lot, but sometimes my stomach doesn't. If I was as cute this this lovely is, I might not care how my tummy feels and swing away! Have a beautiful weekend.
This is so cute Michele! You just keep coming up with great ideas for this swing theme...AWESOME!
Rachelle : )
You are having so much fun with that swing...and so am I looking at it. Love these cards you've been making. So perfect for the challenges and summer time. Keep em coming.
Who knew you were such a swinger!?! I love these swingy cards..... this is adorable! I swung on my belly for sure....and we even stood up on the swing.....kids would never be allowed to do such a thing these days!
This is fabulous in so many ways, Michele. She's so cute (yes I used to belly swing and it was best with the rubber seats) and the chevron is a perfect stand in for tree leaves. To think you fit this darling card into two challenges blows my mind.
Oh I LOVE the swinging in the belly!! you have totally rocked these swingers out of the park!!
Adorable as always, she's having so much fun and LOVE that you used the chevron to build your tree! Do tell us that don't have IG about your "weights" tho...
This is the cutest card ever Michele! Oh yes, swinging on my belly was the way to go!
Such a creative card and so adorable x No I can't say I swung on my belly....I may just have to do it! x
This is super cute, Michele! You used the challenge colors and the sketch so well in your card! I would have never thought of using the sweet girl like this (swinging on her belly). You're so creative and good at thinking outside the box.
OK, 73 more fun swing cards to go. ;-P
This is sweet, and cute and awesome my friend! So wish I could come play with you!
The foot prints of our joy...I love it! You are a true wordsmith, my friend! This card is absolutely, positively darling in every way. I'm tempted to find a swing now! :)
