Punch Art & Pom Poms

Happy Friday Everyone!  I'm SO glad it's here. :)  Since it's Friday you all know that it's time for a card for the Friday Mashup challenge, and I have a fun card to share with least I hope you think it's fun!  If you do keep on reading to see how you can win it! :) This week our challenge is from Avery...and boy did she challenge us, but WOW did the design team come up with some great cards!  Here is this round's challenge...

Create a project with "Pom Poms".
Create a project with "Punch Art:
or Mash it Up! and create a "Punch Art project with Pom Poms on it".

I have to say I had NO idea what to do for this at first since I was determined to mash things up.  But then I started thinking about palm trees and maybe how I could make the pom poms their leaves, then that made me think about the funky Dr. Seuss trees.  Yes, my mind totally wanders like that!  Does yours? lol  Anyway, after thinking about Dr. Seuss tress I started thinking about Horton Hears a Who.  That's when my older daughter informed me I was thinking of the wrong movie and she told me to look up The Lorax.  Yup, those were the trees I was thinking of!  Now how to create the Lorax???  I asked her to grab me my owl punch and things started flying from there.  She tossed my bitty butterfly punch on the table and said use this (look at his head, mustache and eyebrows...totally made using that punch!).  Then it was time for her to go to bed and that meant me too since her "room" is kind of in my craft room right now. lol  Can you imagine having and idea in your head and not being able to run with it right then and there.  Yup, she totally did that to me, but I survived...whew!

Make sure you head on over to the Friday Mashup blog HERE to see what the other designers made and to play along because we'd love to see what you can create too!

Ok...would you like a chance to win this card?  If so just let me know by posting a comment on my blog  here at the bottom of my post.  Yup, that's all you need to do have a chance at winning this a comment. :)  I'll be using a random number generator on Excel to chose the number for me.  I'll post the winner next Monday the 4th so stay tuned.  If this goes over well maybe I'll have to give it a try again in a month.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

  1. Absolutely fantastic! I NEVER would have thought to use a butterfly punch that way! Amazing
    You can't go wrong with Dr Seuss!
