Adora"bill" Card~Again Inspired by Mary Fran

I took a break from caulk removal to try my hand at another card. Mary Fran just released Just Ducky (and Lil Bits (where you get the 'adorabill' image) and showed the cutest card (I thought) to tease her customers. It worked on me! Ü. You can find her version here. Drat, I just realized I forgot the bow and the buttons. Oh well. I changed a few pieces to make it "mine" and I think it came out pretty cute. 

I created a blank file 5.5 x 4.25 and built up the card with all the images layered on top of each other. I tried to shadow a bit, too. I was able to print off the whole piece. I used photo paper this time and it sure does make a difference. *Ü* Thanks for the tips on that. I cut out and adhered this piece onto a cardstock base. I did a little editing in PSE and this is pretty close to how it looks in real life.

Thanks for stopping by. Guess my break is over. I have one more side to work on and then cleaning up those bits that just don't want to come off. Steve gave our old refrigerator to a buddy at work and he came by to pick it up this morning. So of course, Steve showed him what we are doing (guess this guy does home improvement stuff) and he immediately told us we don't have a mold problem! Yahooo! That's another confirmation. Now it's just a time game, shimming up the tub (Steve's job) and my removing the rest of the stubborn caulk, before someone (who is not me) runs a new bead of caulk.

Okay, break's over! Thanks for stopping by! Hope your Sunday is going great.

Another oh-so-cute card!!

I'll be so happy for you when that grout job is done. It's been a long haul. Great to hear the "second opinion" came back negative with the mold.

Have a great week, sweet friend!
