Friday Mashup #111

Okay, I have something different for this weeks Friday Mashup #111.  Here’s the challenge:



  1. Create a project using “your choice of a Neutral & a Splash of one Bright Color”.
  2. Create a project “using a Pencil (regular graphite #2)”.
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project “using pencil & your choice of a neutral & a Splash of a Bright Color”.




Using a pencil, that’s something new and different;)  I decided to give it a try:)  I also decided to mash it up and use pencil, neutral and a splash of color.  My splash of color is Stampin’ Up! Pacific Point, I love blue! My black and white papers are from Stampin’ Up!s Night and Day collection (retired).  You can still get it in digital form and print it out:)  You don’t have to have My Digital Studio, you can use most any print program, I use Print Shop.  I do have MDS, but I don’t know how to import my non-Stampin’ Up! images to print on the same page:(  I’ll have to see if it can be done.

My main image is a digital image from Mo’s Digital Pencil, called Paul Texting.  I love Mo’s images, but most of you know, I am pretty hopeless at coloring:(  All of Mo’s images are black and white.  Anyway…I thought this image would be great colored with pencil, so here it is, you can click on it to make it larger:

Half-fold Card1So what do you think?  I’m going to be sending this card to Send A Smile 4 Kids.  I’m told they always need cards for teens, especially boys!  And it’s all colored with regular #2 pencil!  Ok, I love the way it turned out, I hope you like it too:)

If you follow me at all, you know I love Fred She Said DesignsWell, guess what?  Fred is going to have a 5th anniversary sale, and a blog hop where someone will win some pretty nice prizes!

FSS-5th BDAY SALEPlus, there will be a blog hop where you will get to see lots of card samples! 🙂  I’ll be there, I’m already working on a card or two;)  The theme will be purple and/or flowers:)  Be sure to write it down, or head over to the Fred She Said blog and sign up for the newsletter.  The newsletter will keep you updated on new products, contests and sales! 🙂

Thanks for coming by today! 🙂  Lucky for you all that you can’t hear all the noise going on around me;)  My granddaughters are arguing over colored pebbles, the kind you put in flower vases.  They’re playing some kind of game and getting their pebbles mixed up.  If only we could solve wars by simply counting the pebbles up and dividing them equally!

Have a great weekend! 🙂

    Fabulous card! And certainly perfect for teens. I think teen boy cards would have to be the most difficult to create. 🙂

  2. Great job! I wouldn’t be brave enough to try a human subject, and you did a great job!! Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.

  3. What a great card for a boy – fab choice of Pacific Point for your pop of colour. Thanks for playing along with the Friday Mashup this week!
