The JiFFy Card that wasn’t so JiFFY.

Every month I have a little challenge with a few girlfriends: Michele Boyer, Carole Burrage,  Julie Campbell, Kim Hughes, Alli Miles and usually a guest, this month, my stamping crush, the fabulous Amy Rohl. It’s called the Just for Fun challenge – where one person picks an image and one person selects a paper, and we each see what we come up with. We call it the JiFFy challenge.

This month, Michele was the image picker and chose this darling Stamping Bella image, Miss Zoe. I actually chose my very favorite piece of patterned paper from the entire CHA collections, Luminous from the Moonrise Collection at SEI. It should have been easy~peasy, right? I’ll spare you the ugly craft room drama.

At any rate, here is Miss Zoe, the Hearty Mug Girl colored with Copic. I paired her with a sentiment from Taylored Expressions, A Year of Sweet Sentiments.

I now have about 6 half made cards with this paper sitting on my desk, so I’ll be finishing them up and showing you how many different looks you can get with one piece of patterned paper. 😉

I hope you enjoy the JiFFY cards. I took a peek when grabbing links, and they are so stinkin’ cute!

Enjoy your day!
