You Make Me Smile - Curtain Call Guest Designer!

I was absolutely blown away when Stacey asked me to be a Guest Designer for the January Curtain Call Challenges!  Naturally, I said yes!!  Then, of course, I started to get nervous.  I hope I can live up to the brilliant work of the Design Team!  Here's this week's challenge:


It's a doozy, isn't it?  Here's what I came up with...


My plan was to sponge the background behind the cat, but then I realised I don't have Bashful Blue in an inkpad!  Oops!  So I watercoloured it instead.


So... what do you think?  Did I pass??  :-)


The Curtain Call Crew has samples to show you today, too, so make sure you stop by to see:



and January Guest Designer, ME!

…then play along with us and post your Curtain Call Color Challenge creation using Mr. Linky back at Stacey's Stamping Stage.

  16. I see this card and I thought, "Wouldn't it be cool if I opened it up and it had a continuation to that phrase" --> "You make me smile... - if only you weren't so catty!"

    Now that it's in print, I think it sounds so lame :) But thought I'd share!
