SSIC – Doodle on Your Card!

Happy Father’s Day to all you who are celebrating that today!!  I invited my mom & dad over for a BBQ after church today and we worked hard all weekend cleaning up so we can relax today and just enjoy the company & weather (fingers crossed).

We have a new challenge up today at Stampin’ Sisters in Christ challenges!  Our hostess is Marilynn who shares this verse:  Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen. (KJV)
Please hop over to the SSIC Blog to read Marilynn’s wonderful devotional!
The CHALLENGE:  Make a card that you doodle on!

Here’s what Marilynn says about her challenge:  My challenge for you is to make a card that shows the “EVIDENCE” that you were the creator by doodling on your card. Here are a few suggestions to get you started: dots, swirls, lines, and faux stitching… I look forward to seeing what you create.
So I took her quite literally by Doodling these cute li’l bears, (inspired by the bears on my bathroom curtain!  LOL).  I changed the boy on top to a girl (since we have 2 daughters) and gave her a fishing pole instead of picking berries.  One of our daughters loves to fish with her daddy, so I thought this was fitting. 

I used a Memento Journaling pen and drew them right onto my white cardstock (that’s why the thickness of the lines are not consistent—happens when you are just doodling) and then I colored in with Copics. 
To finish it off, I added more doodling (squiggly dashes and dots) around them for a frame. 

The “Me & My” is from an older SU! stamp set, and the DAD I cut out using my Cricut.
Let’s see you DOODLE too!!  For inspiration & their deets, check out the girls’ blogs:

Great job, Kris!!! Love the bears. Me & My is one of my favorite titles for scrap booking, it's a great set. The ribbon and metal embelli are a fantastic addition.

I always find doodling a challenge too, but I like your doodle border better than mine! :) So glad your daughter enjoys fishing with her daddy, we went fishing just the other night too. Neat little image, colored marvelously well. Have a great week!
