It's time for a new challenge at Paper Smooches SPARKS. Here's the uber-cool inspiration image:
I love that image! There were so many possibilities, but I focused on the colors in the image:
I wanted it to be a play on the "2-4-6-8-Who do we appreciate?" chant. ha ha Using the Paper Smooches Digits dies and stamps, I cut and stamped the numbers. Then, I used the Word Bubbles die and stamped the He Said, She Said speech bubble over it. I didn't realize it beforehand, but they dies aren't nested. It took me a few tries to realize the stamps don't fit in the bubble. I had to add a little ink to the top edge. ;)
I added the little fish from Briny Blue and made him say the "freakin' great" (from Slang Gang). I chuckle at that every time. Here's a close-up:

It's also been a while since I've done a giveaway. It means so much that you take the time to look at my blog. Sometimes it's hard to blog--it's a busy time, I don't like my card, I feel like my comments are lame, etc. But, the kindness and support mean everything to me. :)
As a thank you to my blog followers, I'm doing two giveaways this week. Just comment on any or all of the posts this week, and I'll draw two names from all of the comments (through next Sunday). Here's the first giveaway package (the second I'll share on Thursday):
