Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire:)

For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

Missing you...and a Bo-Bunny sketch, too...

O.k. fellow bloggers...I'm certainly glad my hubbie doesn't blog...or facebook...or any other of that social media stuff...because...well...I have to say I really MISS him this week...now I do know how to pull up my "big girl panties" and and definitely NOT a "needy" wife, but ya know, I've had to do alot of stuff that is usually done FOR me...ya know...like laundry, and cookin' and cleanin'...I know, I know, I'm spoiled, but there ARE things I do, too...like creatin' great MESSY ART...(and yes, I DO have to clean up my own ART room)...

So....I bought a Bo-Bunny 6 x 6 paper pack yesterday...it's kinda "dark and serious"...and took me to a place I don't go often...a "deep" place...I think that's why I never got into the Harry Potter or the Twilight CRAZE...way too "deep and dark" for me, lol...

Anyway, from the paper pack, I decided to go to the Bo-Bunny site to see what challenges are out there that I might partake in...and low and behold, I see a card sketch challenge that "spoke" to me...so I print out the sketch and go back to my paper pack, fan through, and a thought comes to mind...why don't I make a "missing you" card for my hubbie???

So there you have it...it's a bit "darker" than what I usually do, but I'm tellin' a story with this card...not one that I'll bore you with, but it's a story just the same...it'll be my little "secret"...except for my friend Gloria, who I spilled the beans to and now probably thinks I'm totally off my rocker, hee hee....little does she know...I really AM off my rocker...my ART rocker, heehee...

O.k., so here's the sketch:

Here's my "take" on it:



Along with some close-ups:

Bo-Bunny card sketch challenge

I used the Bo-Bunny Timepiece 6 x 6 paper pack for this card.

And remember...ART saves CREATIVE minds:)

I love the card. Love it! Totally different feel from the 4 cards that are going up on my blog tomorrow, with the same paper! That's what I love about creating!

Oh, and if you are off your rocker...birds of a feather, right?! Takes one to know one? hee hee. I had a BLAST with you and Jacquie yesterday. Total laugh riot!
