Holey Moley!


The polka dotted hullabaloo in this week's  Tuesday Trigger


got me thinking of dots but more in the way of holes, then the idea of using this little monster from Jane Doodles in red with a holey background got into my head and seemed like too much fun to let go of it. So here it is. I don't know if it makes sense or if it even needs to make sense but it was fun.

I got an early Mother's Day gift. Want to know what it is? I got a Silhouette! I have the sweetest husband ever! He even got it all set up for me which was pretty easy but still so sweet! So Tuesday he left for work and told me to have fun with my new toy and that is just what I did. Yes, my card has been hanging finished since Tuesday can you believe it? I designed the holey background in the Silhouette Studio and called the kids over to see this little machine cut. They were as excited as me to see this machine in action. It was so exciting. The sentiment was inspired by this card. I made it on the computer, printed it out and then cut the shape of the bubble free hand and inked the edges with black ink, paper pieced the monster and finished the card with this ribbon from Crate Paper trims from their toy box collection. It was part of my prize for winning the In my Beautiful Balloon Challenge. I am not sure if I am supposed to share that but since I had not heard of Paper Crate before and was so amazed by this collection and the high quality of the papers. I thought I should  share. Super cute collection let me tell you. Thank you! Cath.

Now back to the card. I think this card could go to a boy or girl, my 9 year old boy assured that a boy wouldn't care that it has a bow. I could easily change it to a knot in the last minute though. I did ask him if I should make the monster a girl monster by adding a little red bow made of twine and placed it on top of the head and that was not cool at all. He flicked it right off with his little finger, even now his reaction makes me laugh.
