having fun today!

Whew, yesterday I spent pretty much all in the kitchen,
which was fine and fun and all, but it was nice to treat
myself to some art time today. Checked out the Feline
Playful
challenge list blog, and that added with some fun
new images got me going.

Got a super cute collage sheet of tiny playing cards
from Altered Pages, and while I usually would have immediately
thought "Alice," it just so happened these rather serious looking
fellows were staring at me already. So, went a completely
different route:



The atc seemed a little crowded, so made a, hmm,
square--not sure what size, honestly!



So, are these funny, or is it just me?

The backgrounds are my favorite--serendipity style,
with lots of stamping and distress inks and crayons.

Gotta enter these gents in some challenges!
ATC Reginald says hello to:
Allsorts--anything but a card
Challenge Up Your Life--no patterned paper
Inkspirations--color challenge
Phindy's Place--vintage look
Craft Us Crazy--anything goes

Square Reginald says hey-ho to:
Wee Memories--Masculine
Sew Many Cards--3 or more brads
Craft Us Crazy--anything goes
Sassy Studio--distressing

If you're really loving this guy, check out the kit
at Altered Pages--Jean was super fast and wasted no
time getting these handsome poker faces ready for
you to play with!
