Fun with Scrap FX Lanky Alphas!

Saturday was World Card Making Day and I celebrated by joining participating in the A Flair For Buttons blog hop.
My winner is Scarlett!
Scarlett please send along your addy to my email address (posted in the "about me" section above right) and you'll get the "In The News" set direct from the shop.
Congrats and thanks for your thoughtful comment!
I also want to share a card I made for Scrap FX using my absolute all time favorite alphabet set EVER- Lanky Alphas (item number 2007012).
Materials: Pink Paislee Nantucket paper, Jillibean Soup alphabet paper, Maya Road star straight pin,
Prima chalk ink in Teal, Sakura "Souffle" pen in white, red washi tape 
I'm painting the first alpha when I realize I REALLY like the partly raw look.
"Dipped" furniture was a trend this summer with table legs getting dipped in neon or
metallic paints while leaving the table top (or sometimes just half of the top) in it's original state.
 I added the white highlight as a fun experiment and
LOVED the final result. Teal and red KILL together! LOVE that combo!
I love this set because it's 2 inches tall and about 1 third of an inch thick- great for cards or scrapbook pages as it takes up less space on the page while also making marquee statement impact.
The size also means you can dry emboss on these- they take patterns beautifully.

I love this set of cute cartoon Kitty Cats (item number 2012226) from Scrap FX.
I colored the tongue as a joke to the receiver who loves her pet cat.
Sakura Souffle pens cover dark chipboard perfectly. 
I have several thank you cards that need to get made and go out but my craft time seems to be shrinking- could it be the holidays approaching?
I already hear the incessant jingling of bells.

It's the most wonderful time of the year...
Lola's "cheese" face.
I do not ask that she do this- she learned it from someone else.
