Odd Idol Top 10

Here it is everyone! The card that you lovely people *hopefully* voted for for me to get into the Some Odd Girl "Odd Idol Top 10". Thank you everyone that voted, even if you didn't pick me. I really appreciate you taking the time to try!

I couldn't really decide what I wanted to do for this round until I got a HUGE package from Make it Crafty, just overflowing with chipboard pieces. You know I'm addicted to the corners, but inside there were these wonderful little wings. I'd had ideas to make the puppies and kitties in rainbow, or to do like a collection of them, but it wasn't until I saw the wings that I knew what I wanted to do. I drew Kitty's entire background myself because I didn't want to use a Make it Crafty stamp and violate the challenge. But, yeah, that's why the flowers look weird and the rock is kinda... strange. But whatever, right?! Anyway, thank you again for voting! I'm off to create my next entry, due June 5th. Voting will  begin again on June 7th through 12th. I hope you'll try to pick me out again!

Odd Idol Top 15

Thanks to my lovely friends I have made it into the top 15 contestants in Some Odd Girl's Odd Idol competition with this card. Thank you so much to everyone who managed to choose this card out of the amazing entries offered in the gallery.

I must submit my next card by 8pm on May 22nd. You can vote ONCE between May 24th and May 29th. As before, I cannot tell you which submission will be mine, but if you poke around here you'll hopefully get an insight into my style of colouring and embellishing. Again, thank you to the wonderful that *tried* to vote for me, and those that just plain liked my card. You're ALL amazing!

MiC Design Team: Happy Mother's Day

MiCMom
Hello, everyone! Aeryn here with a little gift for my mother on Mother's Day. What can I say, I don't do anything "simple" or "timely". I don't know why, I just plain don't. Therefore it's now nearly 4pm before I was able to present this to her, lol! But she's my mom and she's got to like it, it's a rule, yeah? I tell you, I had a heck of a fun time colouring this, and trying out the whole "word clouds" thing. I mean, how neat is that "love" in the sky? Very fun, definitely doing it again. This card is a full 5x7 image so maybe Mom will frame it or something, that'd be cool. Anyway, I hope you like it, and if you're a mom I hope you had a great Mother's Day and your kids made you something awesome!
