Little Teenie Card Challenge #144

A week or so ago, my good friend, Barb, really wanted me to enter a Meljen’s Designs card challenge using the Windswept Diva card I made. Let me just say, she made sure I entered. LOL  Lo and behold, my card was selected to win a free digital image from Meljen’s Designs!! How fun is that?! Thanks, Barb! *Ü*

I decided to choose Little Teenie, a new image, because it was different from her other designs. Here’s what I came up with…


As Barb explained to me, she was inspired by a character from The Borrowers movie. One I haven’t seen since I didn’t pick up on why she has  the fork. I admit I’m clueless about some things. We are not a big movie watching family. We watch a lot of tv, though. LOL  Anyway, I thought she was a cute little thing. Then Barb told me that the current challenge is to use a square on the card. So, I thought what the heck, I’ll try entering again.

I’ve colored her with my trusty Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits. The papers are from Pebbles, Inc.’s new paper pad called Family Ties. And just in case you didn’t get the whole “square” challenge, I added the embossed strip that uses squares. Gotta cover my bases. LOL Nah, I wanted to add a little texture and thought this would be a fun way to do it. Oh and I added mini brads (Michaels Recollections brand) instead of gems. She’s not such a girly girl, right? Don’t you love the needle sword??

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you are having a happy day. *Ü*

**Edited to add the challenge number and to also say, I guess I haven’t read The Borrowers, either. **

Jeanne, your card is just adorable! You are so good with Prisma pencils and OMS...your coloring is perfect, everything blended so well. I love the "strip of squares", very fitting for the theme.

Thank you for joining us this week at MelJen's.

Hi Jeanne!

I love your tiny card and the little girl is perfect. Believe it or not I have seen the Borrowers a long time ago. If I remember right it was quite funny and old. Thanks so much for sharing your cards.
