Here's Toby

The Greeting Farm's CHA Relay is on Day 3 and I'm still with it! The site has had a few problems due to the volume of creative challengers. Some folks have been excused from the challenge due to time constraints beyond their control. anyhoo, here's Toby Cub:

Due to my lack of techno babble I am limited to the size and orientation of my digital images. I cannot mirror image in the  program I'm working. Nor can I adjust the size to my liking. I printed out Toby in the three sizes that I am comfortable with and will fit on a card. One was a wee bit big, the second wasn't doin' it for me. The third was cute but had the title of the pic with it. I could not get rid of the title, so I changed it to Toby Cub. There is a photo size on my program that's called 'contact size'. I Selected 35 pics to fill the sheet of Buckaroo Blue and made sure that it was on black ink only. Cut my new bg paper to size and here you have Toby in multiples. Eat your hearts out Kate and Octomom. I can have multiples, too! Anyhoo, back to the card. I printed five more tiny Tobies on white and colored one, cut him out, and glued him right on top of one of the blue ones. This card is 5 x 5 1/2 inches so that I could have toby falling off both sides of the bg paper.
I started big because I thought I'd use the largest image and changed my mind.

STAMPS: Polka Dots and Paisley
PAPER: Marigold Morning and Buckaroo Blue
INK: Basic Gray
TOOLS: Wide Oval punch, my computer
INCIDENTALS: ribbon, markers-CCaramel, Pretty in Pink, Brocade Blue

had a great day with my brother, got all of our business and pleasure done. Met Micki and walked our three miles, or was it two? We talked so much that I lost count of our times around the youth center. We walked Sunday am and made it four miles, again talking so much we missed our three mile cut off and just kept going.
Thanks for coming by!
