Guest Designer - Houses Built of Cards - Day 3

Hi there! Heather from Houses Built of Cards here again! So hard to believe that the week is half over!!! Time is flying by so fast, but what fun it has been! Today is Day 3 of my week guest designing for Peachy Keen - and I have been loving every second of it!

Today, I decided first of all to challenge myself with a boy project - I have 2 darling girls that I adore, age 8 and 7, so doing the princess thing is easy! Boys, that is another story! So I pulled out what I think is my all time FAVORITE Peachy Keen face assortment (Wide Eyed Kid Faces) and my Cricut Boys Will be Boys cartridge. If you don't have this set of faces, I would highly suggest it! I think I have used it more than any other set. (And...Peachy Keen is having a great sale too...just in case you wanted to know!)

Anyway, here is my project for today:


I cut this cute little guy out, added some inking with some Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen and lots of faux stitching. Then...I couldn't resist putting him on an Action Wobble! (If any of you are wondering, Peachy Keen usually has these in stock. However, from looking at the Action Wobble Facebook page, it looks like they are having a production snag that they are trying to work out on their end, and then they will be shipping them to retailers - hopefully in time for the holidays. So...hopefully Peachy Keen will soon have them back in stock - or someone else will have them if not!) Anyway, these next couple of pictures show the action a little bit for you to see:


Isn't that FUN?!?!?! I love using Action Wobbles on projects, and definately plan on stocking up when they are back in supply again! Finished this one off with some Baker's Twine, a sentiment from My Creative Time stamps, and a bit of doodling around the edges of the card.

Here is the face set that I used on my project today:


And...just a reminder of the giveaway this week!!! Peachy Keen allowed me to select a giveaway for the week! So on Saturday morning I will be picking a lucky commenter from either here or my BLOG via Random.org and giving away a $25 Gift Certificate!!! If I had picked a set to give away, it probably would have been the set I used today - but if you already have this set, or your heart is set on something else, you can pick whatever YOU would like!!!


Thanks for taking a peek today! Feel free to pop over to my BLOG and leave a comment for a second chance to win! I also have some bonus past projects using this same face set posted on my blog. See you tomorrow!

Wobbles make cards so fun, and it amazes me sometimes how adding a cute little PK face can change the look of a die cut so much. Really cute card.
