Card for a Child at Creative Knockouts

It’s Thursday and that means it is time for a new challenge at the Creative Knockouts Challenge Blog.  This week’s challenge is to make a card for a child and our wonderful sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps.  Create a card and enter the challenge for a chance to win.

I love technology.  Who doesn’t right?  I love technology when it is working would be a more accurate statement.  I wanted to print this image on my new Kodak printer from Anna Griffin.  My new printer is supposed to print on thick card stock and canvas and lots of other mediums that a normal non craft printer would not print on.  Now I printed something on my new printer Sunday because I couldn’t get my laser printer to work.  This is starting to sound like a theme.

I have 3 printers and I could not get a document to print on any of them at one point on Sunday.  UGH!!!!!  So I turned my new Anna Griffin Kodak Craft printer on because it won’t stay on forever – it turns itself off.  And what do you know – it’s not connected to my Wi Fi.  Seriously?  I messed around with it for a while and then gave up.  I printed this image using my HP Envy printer which I purchased during another HSN Craft Day (another theme).  I had to turn that printer off and back on again to get it on the WI-FI.  Finally it printed.  Now it is irrelevant that I waited until the last minute to finish my design team card so don’t even bring that up!  I told this long boring story to explain why some of the ink ran when I was coloring it with my Copics.  I don’t recall having this issue before, but I sure had it today.

I used this cute image Brat and Charlie to create my card:

You are my favorite human

Card for a Child

Googly Eyes

This adorable image is from Bugaboo Stamps where you can find all kinds of fun images to color and play with.  This card was pretty simple because I wanted the focus to be on the image.  I printed the image and proceeded to color it with my Copics.  The sentiment comes from the My Favorite Things dog stamp set from the July release.  And you can’t have a silly looking animal without googly eyes.  I layered my card front on red swiss dot paper and placed it on a card base.  Pretty simple, but with this image you don’t need elaborate.

Take some time to enter the card for a child challenge at Creative Knockouts.  Thanks for stopping by the blog today and tune in next time for another paper crafting project.  Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.
