Gallery Idol 2013–Round 2!
Hello Sweet Friends!
Well, I am utterly humbled and thrilled to announce that I made it into the Top 20 of Paper Crafts Magazine’s Gallery Idol competition for 2013. AACCKKKKK!! I’ve been pinching myself all weekend long to make sure that I’m not dreaming! The other fabulous women in the Top 20 are beyond phenomenal and brilliant – many are my crafting crushes! LOL I am certainly not worthy. But I’m going to give it my best shot. Let the competition begin!
For our Round 2 prompt, we were asked to create a card that “Defines Dad.” Well, I love a man with a sense of humor. I especially love a man that can make me laugh. There’s nothing more endearing to me than watching my girls laugh at my husband’s corny jokes.
When I came across this “Groucho Marx disguise” cutting file (from the Slap Happy Collection at Lettering Delights), it made me laugh out loud! Perfect - right?! I cut it out using my Silhouette Cameo. The sentiment was computer generated using two “old movie” fonts that I found on dafont.com. I thought that the diagonal stripes added another element of playfulness and humor – almost clown-like.
Well, friends that’s my entry. I’d be EVER so grateful if you’d take the time to vote for me. It’s all about the votes in this competition, so if you like my project, it would mean the world to me if you’d vote for it. You can register and vote HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have an amazing day, and am so grateful for the time you spend here! Thank you in advance for voting for me!
