Hurrah!

I had so much fun with Counting Sheeple from Squigglefly that I had to grab Turtle Express too -- I cannot even stand how cute that snail is! Since I still have plenty of time to make more boy birthday cards for Card Cupids' March Card Drive, I grabbed one of Paper Cupcakes' super freebies offered with this week's Magical Monday challenge (Happy Birthday Nina!) to make the sentiment ticket chain.


Craft Us Crazy Challenge 22
The tickets are actually one piece; I used the perforation blade on my papercutter and then tore them apart except for one bit. I gave them some character with my paper distress, Antique Linen distress ink, and Copics.

If you haven't seen this week's Craft Us Crazy bright color inspiration photo yet (right), I know you'll want to join in when you do! Finish reading my post first though, Ha!

I used the fun Inspirational Card Sketch #154 (below), which is sadly the last for that challenge site.

I found the perfect DPs in my stash, although it took some looking! I also had just the right amount of the pretty spotty ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.

I also added some bakers twine, because why the heck not
