Frilly & Funkie Winter Blues Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone! It's cold and snowy out for me so it's a good day to be inside crafting. ;-) I created a birthday card for my Dad and for the Frilly & Funkie Winter Blues Challenge.

Also, in the Tim Holtz Addicts Facebook group there is a challenge for this month to use his classic paint resist technique from his 12 tags of 2012. I used it in the background for the card.

Thanks for stopping by for this quick post. =) I'll get back in the craft room and work on another project to share soon!

  1. Cool theme for a challenge and perfect weather for it. Love the use of the Gents and Cupcake... So fun and gorgeous blues.

  2. What a fun card! It makes me think of the illustrations in the Trader Joe's Frequent Flyer catalog...which is a very good thing indeed! And of course, it's perfect composed. Thanks for sharing with us at the Frilly and Funkie Winter Blues Challenge.

  3. Wow, Lisa, I'm sure your Dad is going to love his birthday card! You nailed the blues here for our Winter Blues challenge at Frilly and Funkie and I'm so happy you played along! Hugs! PS Thank you for the paint resist inspiration. I've got one coming, but you've given me more ideas I want to try.

  4. Sweet birthday card for your dad! Love the vintage fellas greeting him with his birthday wishes! Thanks for playing along with us in the "Winter Blues" challenge at Frilly and Funkie!
