Fungus Among Us

I'll just admit it. I love puns. I can't help myself. When I saw this new mushroom set from Hero Arts, I immediately thought I wanted to experiment with the "fun guy/ fungi" play on words. Don't worry, I know it is a bad pun. I am not proud.

To make this card, I used some of my Basic Grey Archaic paper and then picked some Copic markers that would match. I really wanted to make a card that would use browns, greens, and oranges because the colors are masculine and perfect for mushrooms. I added plenty of layers of paper because the Hero Arts challenge last week was layers and I wanted to try and add as many as I could.

Guess what?! My new Memory Box blog has launched!!! I am very excited. I named it "Color Whimsy," and you can check it out here. I posted the birthday card I made the other day, so the card will look familiar. I will be updating the site later today with a brand new card now that I am more comfortable working in Typepad.

I hope you like the new site,

Yeah! Glad you started your blog for Dave. Other than by going from your website, how do you get there? I didn't see a place to click onto your Color Whimsy on the Memory Box site.
