Minecraft creeper card

Stamps: Rad (CAS-ual Fridays)
Ink: Staz-On

Has your house been taken over by MineCraft?  Mine has.  My boys speak a whole new language, & I find myself singing minecraft lyrics in my zumba class, instead of the originals!
I have been toying with making a creeper card for a while now, but I was going to do it using the tiny squares from the SSS grid die.  In truth I have put it off because it seemd like too much work & I am nothing if not lazy.
However, today I saw this on Ardyth's Pinterest board:
Gift idea and a quick, no stamping card for a boy
and remembered this from Mini Eco:
Woven space invaders
& my lazy genes rejoiced!
I have a whole load of 1/8" ribbon in a variety of colours.  Naturally none were the murky green required, but I soon fixed that wih a couple of pro-markers.  I used random splodges of darker green on top to get the pixellated look:
These were then attached to some square cardstock & the black ribbon woven vertically for the features.
Having framed & mounted it, I couldn't get any sentiment to look right, until I hit upon some washi tape.

Am now going to slip in under the wire for CAS-ual Fridays!

Hoppy Birthday

Stamps: Basic Borders (ME); Elzybells
Ink: Bahama Blue, Bamboo Leaves (Memento)
Font: Filbert Color, TW Cen MT Condensed
Other: Frog Die (Provocraft)
Did you ever have a rubber frog which, when you squeezed it, had a long red tongue that unrolled?  My kids did.  Whilst rooting around amongst my dies, this frog came to light, & lo a card was born.
CAS-ual Fridays are challenging us to make a card for a bloke, which uses a ribbon but no kraft, & I think this fits the bill.  Whilst not being overtly masculine, it is certainly not girlie.  Maybe I'll settle on androgynous!
