Paperplay Challenge - Week 3 - use your handwriting!

This week's Paperplay Challenge is set by Kate.  Like most of us Kate isn't a fan of using her own handwriting in her projects  so that's her challenge - use your handwriting on your project/card.

Here is my DT card.  I know I used this digital image of "Mia and Bosko" last week - but I absolutely love it - thanks to Jane for sending it to me.  It is available here at Squigglefly if you are interested.

Mia & Bosko digital image, Martha stewart loop border punch, pink textured cardstock from papermania,
Staedtler triplus fineliners in pink and blue, ribbon from packaging, pop dots and copics

So after I made the first card above I knew there were elements about it that I wasn't happy with.... so I started again on the challenge and came up with this one.  Again I used an image by Jane called "spike" and hand wrote the greeting.  I added a tiny little googly eye on the dot on the "i" - so it really is a fun kid's card.

I made this for the Card Drive for Kids that Jennifer McGuire is currently running and if you don't know anything about it check out Jennifer's blog here.

Thanks so much for dropping by and hope you will play along with Paperplay this week and maybe even participate in the Card Drive too.

So cute! And what a nice idea to bring about your own handwriting, so important to use that, isn't it? I've found that after typing for so many years, my handwriting has deteriorated, so sad, so this gives me wonderful inspiration!
