Challenge Your Stash

 Have you ever made a card and just not like it?  Well today I made a card for our Challenge your Stash group on Splitcoaststampers.  The challenge came from Lisa and she decided we needed to celebrate National Write a Friend month by creating a card where you can easily write a note to a friend.

Well I had this adorable gnome stamp by Woodware Craft Collection called Floral Hat.  The fun for me is coloring the image.  Must come from when I was a child and could sit for hours coloring and no I never went outside the lines.  LOL  


This was my first attempt at the card.  I liked the coloring but the card itself just looked like it needed some color.  

And here is my second attempt.  I like it alot better.  It needed some color to bring out the colors in the hat.  

So thanks Lisa for a great challenge.  Since this is a slimline card, I will be able to write a nice long note to a friend.

PIP Challenge #2151

 Can you believe Christmas is just 5 short days away.  It sure doesn't feel like Christmas here in Kansas with the warm weather we are having but I am enjoying my walks  and seeing the beautiful lights everyone has up.  

For today's Challenge over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies (#2151) we are being sponsored by We are 3 Digital Shop.  

                                              

For my card today I am using the Snowman image from their online etsy shop.  He is such a cute little guy.


I printed off the image once I decided what size I was going to use and then colored it with my copic markers. The designer papers I used are from Winter Whimsy by Gina K Designs.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my card.  I hope to see you one more time on my blog before the new year starts.

Merry Christmas to all.

PIP Challenge #2149

 Monday sure rolled around quickly.  This means it is time for another challenge over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenges.  There is no sponsor this week but Pam has ben generous enough to offer a $5 gift certificate to Mo's Digital Pencil.  


I love foxes so I decided to use the stamp Winter Fox from Mo's Digital Pencil image.  There are so many adorable images in their store that I had a hard time deciding which image to purchase and use for our challenge this week.

I colored the image wit my copic markers and then used a circle die to cut the image out.  I added a few flag on the lower part of the circle.  The papers I used are from Carta Bella Dear Santa.

Thanks for stopping by to see my card this week.  I hope to see your entry over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenges.
