Strike Up The Band...Just Us Girls Challenge #443~Word Week

Hello,

Hope you had a great week and that plans are unfolding for an even better weekend. Me? Bike races...Yayyy!

Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #443~Work Week, where our lovely Sue is prompting us with *OUTSIDE*.  How's that for an intriguing twist?  So many interpretations: images that we would 'literally' see outside, images that run 'outside' a frame/panel, images/sentiments that are outside-the-box...just tie on that thinking cap and let your imagination run!


If you've come from - or are heading to - the challenge blog, you'll see an array of fabulous cards from our June Guest Designer, ever-so-talented Hannelie Bester - WELCOME to the JUGS gang, Hannelie -   and my talented teammates: Sue, Angie, Vicki, Ina, Bobby, Nancy, Lisa, Maria.

My little scene is an 'attempt' at three levels of *Outside*: 'marching bunnies' - which we well know are pretend (but let's not tell them that!); marching - which is typically done 'outside'; and, of course, the 'outside' surroundings I've place them in.  Oh...and one is also 'outside' the frame! That makes four levels...sort of...


Same card, just a different pose...simply because...

So many things to love about this card, Carol. The scene is absolutely wonderful. I adore how you used the circle scalloped die to set the stage. The ink blending is so light and airy. The coloring on your marching mice is fantastic! The card design is just perfection. Thanks so much for sharing, Carol. You've given me more fun inspiration for this set. Have a fabulous time at the bike races! Hugs!

You write the best posts Carol! You always bring a smile to my face! You have really taking the word and ran with it! Your card is as special as you! Great job!

How cute is this little outside scene. Your coloring is fabulous too.

ps - what are the chances we used the same layout! I didn't copy I promise :)

Carol, I just love your marching bunnies and the way you have placed them in a gorgeous outside scene and then again outside the frame! Such a wonderful interpretation of the "Outside" word prompt! You, my dear, and simply a genius artist!!!

You have nailed this Outside challenge times 4! Love the beautiful, soft clouds and grass on the awesome design. And I love how your bunnies are outside the frame, too.

Jane said...

Oh those marching bunnies are just so cute! I love your reasoning with the outside theme too. Thanks for linking up and joining in with AAA Cards birthday celebrations!
