Hi, Gals and Pals!

Today I broke out my Doodlebug and Some Odd Girl’s “Panda Nerd”

I love this cute little panda, and I designed my card to be a little bit fun for my Uncle.

Moving into a new house, my Uncle is the best! he has helped me change multiple light bulbs and actually had to help me fix the lights so that I don’t have to run up and down the stairs all the time to turn a switch on. (The people who owned this house did not know how to install 2 way light switches properly!)

I coloured the little panda after watching the animal class on how to colour panda’s and decided to add glossy accents to the glasses to make them shiny. Then decided on a layout for my card. I found the light bulb pattern paper in the doodlebug pack, and thought that would make him laugh so had to add that on the card, I then wanted the little nerdy panda to be holding a light bulb, So I actually cut out the lightbulb after printing it with my Silhouette and carefully cut around his hands so he could be holding it. I felt that the lightbulb needed a lot of shine on it, so I added Spectrum Noir glitter pen and then topped it off with glossy accents for that fun 3d effect.

Afterward, I glued all the pattern paper together and added a little bit of an inlay effect for more interest. I then went searching for a sentiment, I knew it had to be a pun on bright but I didn’t have any sentiments that matched. After searching for half an hour I decided it was time to “Frankenstein” a few sentiments so that I could make it say You are so bright.

I hope this card helps brighten your day!

Lots of hugs!

Question Time: Are you a nerd? I have always thought I am a nerd one way or another and it doesn’t even bother me now. I think it is great that “Nerd Culture” is in and is a way to express one’s self.
