The First Midnight Run

Friends, Bloggers, Craftygirls... lend me your ears... finally, here it is... the grand opening of Midnight Rooster and its debut kit "The First Midnight Run." Seriously, does Tobi's humor grab you? It certainly grabbed me. When I applied to the DT call, I told her that she had me at "rooster." LOL! And roosters we have a couple in this fabulous kit.

First up is this die-cut rooster guy included in the kit. I had no problem coming up with an idea for him. Hey, if I can't get my kid to stop playing with her "food," I might as well take some pictures! I stamped the border with a myStamp Box "Funky Flowers" flower stem. I straightened the stem a little bit to achieve the slightly crooked border look I was looking for.

Oh goodness, I inked two layouts in a row, last time I inked the edge of an layout... I'm not sure this kid was born then... So you've heard me talk about Laina's digital die cuts. Well, another layout with frames cut with her stuff from 2peas.

I am very proud of myself for creating the multi-colored tail for this rooster guy :) I have my limits though, I wasn't going to go with more than three colors! LOL. Midnight Rooster has teamed up with Purple Onion Designs to bring you exclusive stamps in every main or add-on kit!!  Seriously, how cute is this rooster?  Ga ga, oh la la, that's how cute.

I have more projects using "the First Midnight Run," but I will post them another day. Meanwhile, be sure to stop by Midnight Rooster to look around and check out the DT projects. While you are there, pick up a kit :)

i have a bit of time this morning to catch up on my visiting & commenting...
jing-jing, its so hard to keep up with you!! everything, everything you do is extra-superb. :)
and thanks for passing on that agatha christie nugget. it reminded me of arrested development: lindsay & michael are talking about their mother and she calls her a "sweet old thing", and michael says that only two of those words describe their mother. so for the rest of the episode they refer to her as "old thing". funny!!

Sue said...
