365 Cards - Day 94 - Combo Card + 1 more!

This is kinda a long post...if you're looking for my Sassy Hatter submission, it's below...

Aloha and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday challenge at 365 Cards! The challenge today is to pick at least one previous challenge each from March, April, AND May...so you'll need to combine at least 3 challenges! I know for some that's daunting, but give it a try...it'll definitely get your creative juices flowing! I got to play with the adorable Flowerpot Fred image from this week's sponsor KLM Digital Designs (love those initals BTW!!!) and here are the three challenges I choose:
~ March = A whole new dimension (3/13)
~ April = Taggies (4/6)
~ May = It needs something (5/11)

Check out the close up to see how I met March and May's challenges:

I popped up the flowerpot and added a super small butterfly which I thought was "missing"! So CUTE!! I colored him with Prismacolored pencils and OMS. The patterned paper is Basic Grey Cupcake.

Here's a picture of the inside:

Also we had a big discussion among the DT when we pick our images about how clowns scare some people. Well, except for that scary Steven King one...I'm on the side of clowns being cute and fun!! So much so that when I was younger I collected clown figurines and was actually a clown!! Just to prove it, here's a picture of me in my costume (taken from a card that my mom sent to me for my birthday a couple of years ago)...

See where I got the inspiration for the yellow hair for Flowerpot Fred?!? And that balloon paper?!?!  :)

Well, I hope you're inspired to play along with us again this week...oh yeah, here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - celebration card
2. Incy Wincy Designs - make a creation for a baby or small child
3. The Sweetest Thing - sketch

And finally, here's my submission for the last day of the Sassy Studio Designs Anniversary Relay! Whew, what a race! :) We got to use "The Sassy Hatter" for this one, so fun! My color inspiration was a picture I found on-line of Disney's Mad Hatter at Disneyland/world. He has grey hair, and the blue, orange, and green color scheme which I thought was fun too! So here's the picture of the front...

I made a tall card so I could print her larger...yesterday's was too hard to color as small as I printer her out! I thought this would make a great anniversary card so here's the inside which I kinda confirms the sentiment...

Here's some other challenges for this one:
1. Daring Cardmakers - Happy Anniversary
2. Little Paper Shop - sketch

Well, thanks for sticking around and making it to the end of this long post!! As always, your comments are much appreciated! Thanks!



Hee-Hee, I'm first!
Now there's my daughter Kim as I remember you! Kim was in 4-H and while she did many projects within the club, clowning was something she really got into. Her dad even built her a make-up box with a pop up mirror and a place to store her wig and supplies. Sure brings back a lot of memories of following her in Country Day parades year after year in Farmington. [Note to Kim: it's this week-end if you want to come home!] Just one of the advantages of living in a small town...

Love the Mad-hatter image. Those images are just gorgeous! And your coloring on both cards is just terrific. You're my role model!

Have a great day, Love, SAM aka MOM

You were an adorable little clown - not at all like the "It" one...just a hint of trouble, but no real evil. :)

Love the Mad Hatter card - the colours are fabulous! (as is the colouring)
