JiFFy Time!

Happy Thursday, everyone! I have some fun and exciting news -- I  have been asked to join some of my favorite stamping friends in their Just For Fun challenges! Yep, I'm a JiFFy Girl! :)

I am SO excited to join Carole, Lori, Michele, and other newbies Amy and Jody for this monthly challenge. Here's how it works: one person chooses the paper, and another chooses the image(s). They're sent out to the others, and no one knows what they are until we get them. Sometimes they work together perfectly, sometimes not... that's the challenge. And it's Just For Fun.

This month, Lori chose the paper, Bohemian Floral from the Le Cirque Collection by Graphic 45. Carole chose the images from the Spiffy Scooters set by Paper Smooches. They're a great combination -- I was glad I didn't have to sweat too much over my first challenge. ;)


I used Copic markers to color this adorable scooter. I don't know if there really are orange scooters like this one out there, but it works in my world. ;)  I placed some baby braddies through the dots between the words in the sentiment.


I cut out the little steam puffs and popped them up on glue dots. I applied some Liquid Applique and immediately puffed it up with a heat tool.


I finished the inside with more paper and another sentiment.



Be sure to check out what the other girls have done with the same paper and images! I can't wait to see them myself! :)
