Happy Memorial Day to all of you. Those of you that follow me, know that I joined the Fitztown Design Team a few weeks ago. I am absolutely thrilled with the images, both digis to color the way I desire and wonderfully detailed precolored images. I have worked with Morgan Fitzsimons’ images for over a year through my work on the Design Team at Scrapbook Stamp Society.
You are going to want to check out the Fitztown Challenge Blog because TODAY is the start for the weekly challenges. This week the theme is ANYTHING GOES, which I know is a favorite for many of you.

I am sure you will be inspired with the projects the Design Team have to show you. I used two different precolored images by Karen Sheltrown. She is one of the artists at Fitztown. I have to check on purchasing info. Morgan Fitzsimons also has a Craft CD of fabulous precolored images that you can purchase. At the Crafts by Fitztown site you can purchase individual images and CDs by other artists. I hope you have a little time to check things out.
For my first card, I used a precolored car image. For the card base I used a dark green A2 precut base. I then alternated from the Momenta Vacation Pyramid Cardstock Pad. I added some sparkle with a row from The Robin’s Nest. I stamped the sentiment with a wood block stamp from Inkadinkado.
For my 6 X 6 card, I used white Bazzill for the base and then cut 1 inch strips from the Momenta Family Outings Pyramid Cardstock Pad. It is double sided so I just alternated the sides. I then cropped the precolored truck image from Morgan’s CD and chalked the edges. I stamped the full Inkadinkado stamp in a co-ordinating color and chalked the edges and added pearles on the corners. I adhered the sentiment and the truck with pop dots for added dimension. I always try to be symmetrical but I just love the little bear image on the Momenta paper so I arranged things so he would be visible.
Here they are side by side:
I also wanted to share my little surprise that made me smile this weekend. I had taken my nephew to see the movie The Croods a couple weeks ago, and look what he made for me:
Bet you are smiling now too. Go on, admit it, you are.
