Lawnscaping Challenge #8 (and Video Tutorial Monday)

April 17, 2011

That’s right, folks, this is a fun post because I’m combining two things today. Yeah, combining things makes it fun… didn’t you know that? Okay no really. I’ve just been super sick for the past couple days and wanted to take it easy. The worst part is that I’m sooooo bored. I want to be up and crafting, cleaning and getting homework done, but being sick has confined me to my bed. Not fun! I’m going to the doctor today and will get tested for strep and all that fun stuff, so no worries. I should be back to normal soon enough. Thanks for all of your kind thoughts and well wishes! You gals are so cute and make me smile. :)

Anyways, on to business! It’s time for Lawnscaping Challenge #8 – Calling All Critters. I’m especially fond of this one because Lawn Fawn is so well-known for their cute little critters. Therefore, I wanted to highlight multiple sets of critters in my card for this challenge. Here’s what I came up with:

Eek! I just love Lawn Fawn critters so much. This one will be a super fun one to play along with, too. You could make something super simple with just a critter + sentiment or go more elaborate with a cute little scene. There are so many possibilies!

Here’s the video for this week for Video Tutorial Monday. For those of you coming over here from the Lawnscaping blog, this is my weekly feature where I make a card from start to finish on camera. I hope you enjoy it! Oh, and I’m super out of it throughout this whole video. Being sick has definitely caused my brain to be a little… slow. You’ll see what I mean in the video with all of the pauses that I take. Ha!

    Very Cute Britta! I really hope you start feeling better soon. Seems like a lot of you girls have been sick lately. I sent out well wishes to you all in my last blog post. Sounds like despite the boredom you have at least been trying to take care of yourself which is good, keep it up and you will be back to your normal self in no time! :)
