Challenge # 53 - Can I Quote You On That?

This week the Poobahs are challenging you to create a project using a quotation. It can be someone famous, someone you love, anonymous, even someone in your imagination. It doesn't matter to us who you Quote, just make something with a Quote on it.

Rosemary here: I need more encouragement cards in my stash, so here's a start. the color looks very subdued but it is more vibrant, richer in real life (trust me on this one). I like the sentiment (thank you, Ms./Mr. Anonymous) and I think it might brighten a friend's day when they're feeling like they'd need stepladder to scratch a snake's belly.

Here's another card that I hope you'll like!


Jana here: I am really into digi work these days. And a bit of hybrid. I am also really bad at remembering who sings what songs, which is a hinderance today. I made this page for my Heart the ART journal. My oldest is 15. 'Nuf said. I know the quote, "Mama said there'd be day like this", but don't know who to credit for it. Anyway, I used a picture of a volcano I found on the web, and you can barely make out the word "WHATEVER" in the background. It's Megan's handwriting and I thought it was perfect for this page. It isn't near the image I had in my head, but I like it anyway. (This is the digi page. I am HORRIBLE at photographing my works and wanted you to see this because I LOVE how it turned out.)

(tee hee hee - Rosemary likes it too)

I also made a bookmark. I like my bookmarks flat, so this is it. I won't add any embellishements.

The quote is one I looked up on the web. I thought it matched the bookmark really well.

(I think maybe I went about this backwards: Bookmark first, Quote second - oops. But that IS how I roll.)

I printed it as a 4x6, printed, scored, folded, glued, brayered, punched a hole, inked the edges and added a scrap of ribbon.

And as a special treat for you, here it is all ready to print.

For details go to my blog - I CAN'T WANNA. See you all later, I'm going to go read.

Now get out there and let us QUOTE YOU ON THAT...

Awesome challenge, Ladies -- I'm a big fan of quotes for all occasions! This card was for DD's birthday; rather appropriate for a teen card, isn't it?

Amazing samples -- great quotes and the 'days like this' made me giggle. Off to scope out the bookmarks!
