Piñata Marci by LaLa Land

I have NEWS, we did sell our home and in a few months I will be setting up our new home in South Dakota!  I am excited but my poor husband has to stay here and continue his business until fall.  Now I have to find a place for him to live, temporarily! lol  This summer will be busy and I will be driving back and forth between States exchanging teens and visiting my husband, someone has to cook for him!  I think the first room I will set up is the Craftroom!

My first Marci card!  At first I did not care for them and after a few years I thought I should open my mind and buy one.  So happy I did, she was fun to color and I had to buy more of Marci.  I have always loved LaLa Land dies and they all go perfectly with the images so why not get a few Marci's.  No boys allowed on the blog! My rule! lol

Today is an new challenge at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog the theme is ANYTHING GOES.  It is so easy to pop a card into the entry for your chance to win $20.00 at the 7 Kids College Fund Store.  Only 1 RULE, use a image or main items that are available in the store, easy!

I wanted this card to be festive like the image and full of life.  I went die cut happy.

Marci is colored in Copics, the extra blue marks are to show movement in the piñata as she is hitting it. lol  Around the edge of the image I rubbed black ink and then Frantaged to get the confetti look.

Here are florals from Live Love Crafts and a Magnolia doohickey die Sprawling Fern as well as a swirl die.

I used LaLa Lands Heart Doily Border on the left side and again at the top of the card with Magnolia doohickey feathers.  In some of the corners you can see LaLa Lands Decorative Corner die in white.

In this photo are LaLa Lands Heart Doily, Birthday corner and Heart Doily Border dies all in white and edged with black ink.  I also have the top swirl die and tucked in the mix in blue stripe is 1 Magnolia doohickey envelope edge die.

I am playing with my photos and trying to improve so I enhanced this one differently.  Thank you for stopping by today and I sure hope you make something available from the 7 Kids College Fund Store and enter your creation into our new challenge at 7 Kids College Fund Blog Challenge.

I think about you blogger friends and I am sad to keep ignoring you but it is not intentional.  I will be around from time to time as I do miss visiting your blogs.
Take care and keep crafting!
