Get Knitty with it???

Happy Thursday, Everyone! A sale always makes me happy, and at Mygrafico everything is 40% off today only ! Yesterday I went about the task of making a set of ATCs for a swap called "That's so Funny" that I am in at the Stamp Shack, but I just couldn't make anything work out. I wanted to use my Lindsay's Stamp Stuff image and sentiment "Get knitty with it" and the yarn balls in the center, but I just couldn't create anything cute that wasn't too plain and blah. I scrapped that idea for now, but did still want to use the Crafty Tools and Puns set. I decided to get a bit more digi than I usually do, and created my own patterned paper using a green background and randomly "stamping" the all around phrases borders (it doesn't show up well in the photo, not sure why?). I made a blue panel for the bottom and separately layered the sentiment onto black and also printed the image. I embossed the blue layer and cut out the sentiment and image. The image was layered on to a piece of Coredinations sparkly paper - I love that stuff!!! I added corners, ribbon and flowers to finish. I know it's not one of those "WOW!" cards, but I think it is cute.
Check out today's design team and see what they have created. Lindsay has made a fabulous scrapbook page and has a cute Halloween freebie for you today. Start with her blog and hop through the others!
