Happy grumpies!


I just can't seem to leave these little guys alone at the minute; I was all set to use a different image today, and even got so far as colouring it all in, but my persnickety brain refused to play until I started thinking about the Grumpies again. I think someone told them that Smudgefest was supposed to be called Grumpiefest. I gave these two arms and made them hold hands so that (if you sort of unfocus your eyes slightly) together they look like one happy smiling face. The Grumpies are, of course, by Smeared Ink, and this particular couple are included in the Love Grumpies set. I created the papers in PSP specifically for this project (because for some bewildering reason, I just didn't seem to have any love or friendship papers in this colour scheme :P)
These are the challenges I'd like to enter:
Pink Ink - sketch
Smudgefest Day 3 - bright orange, yellow, grey, deep indigo (the indigo looks black in my piece, but it is actually a very deep purple)
Stamptacular Sunday - Friendship
Crafts and Me - anything goes
Little Red Wagon - critters
Fab n Funky - friendship
Cooking It Up with Katie - something old (ribbon), something new (paper), something you love (digital colouring)
Stampin' B's Design Team - card using ribbon
Magical Monday with Paper Cupcakes - mythical/mystical creatures (Do cute furry monsters count?)
