A is for Animal

Standard

This past week I’ve made cards featuring Cookie Monster, Elmo, Oscar the Grouch, Grover and Beaker. We are continuing on the Muppets theme today with my favorite one of all – Animal. It was amusing to decide how to create and assemble him. Once I had the bits and pieces all cut, it wasn’t until his eyebrow went on that he truly looked like himself.

B is for Beaker

Standard

So, I love Sesame Street which means I love the Muppets as well. This past week I’ve made cards featuring Cookie Monster, Elmo, Oscar the Grouch and Grover. Then one of my favorite Muppets jumped to the head of the “Make a card of me” line – Beaker – everyone’s favorite lab assistant. Meep. Meep. Meep.

G is for Grouchy

Today’s card is a match to yesterday’s and the day before’s – First there was Cookie Monster and then there was Elmo. Today we have Oscar the Grouch. I’m the same age as Sesame Street – I love the characters. When I went to the White House Easter Egg Roll last year, I think I was more excited to see Elmo than I was to see the President, and I was really excited to see him.

C is for Cookie

Standard

Today’s card was created on a whim. I won blog candy from She Who is Known as Sandy, Queen of Copics. Included in the candy was a Stampin’ Up solid circle stamp that I realized was the perfect size for Googly Eyes. The card started with that pair of eyes. I then grabbed a deep blue piece of cardstock. I looked at my Shapeabilities dies and decided on a scalloped oval. Another smaller solid oval for the mouth and  Voila, le monster de cookie was on my crafting table.

This was a fun card to make and is a perfect card for Operation Write Home – this week’s Midweek Throwdown is Cards for Kids.

The cookie was a diecut circle. I used the edge of a scalloped die to create the bite. Chocolate chips are done with colored pencil. I could have used brads as well – that’ll be the next card.
