Happy Saturday, folks! I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I got SO much done today. I love those productive weekends. Why don't they happen more often? I figured before I sat down to stamp my night away, I would show you the card I made yesterday for the very first challenge hosted by Crazy 4 Challenges. They gave away a great prize for cards posted before 8pm last night but alas, I was too late to get in on that action. I still had fun playing along though! Here is my card...
I can't seem to make up my mind whether I want to make fall or winter cards so I guess it is a good thing that both are on their way, huh? One thing is for sure though...this sketch is a fun sketch! They gave us a great one for their first week. My image is from the Stampendous set called Short Snowy Stacks. What a versatile set! It comes with several mix & match portions of holiday figures like elf suits and reindeer feet. They can be combined in lots of different ways. You can make a snowman wearing various hats or even a reindeer in a Santa suit. I went pretty conservative today I guess. My snowman isn't too adventurous of a combo but he sure is cute! And of course, these images color really well. I have to be able to color with my Copics dontcha know! I used an older Cuttlebug folder that I bought on clearance back in the spring. I can't seem to find the exact name of it since it isn't being sold anymore. It looks like a snowflake quilt in the background of the card. The snowflake embellishment at the top looks white in my photo but I promise it is punched from shiny, metallic silver paper. In real life, it shows up much better.
Well ladies, (I assume, LOL!), I am off for a night in the scramp room with hubby. Before I do that, I have an appt with my daughter and an Easy Bake oven so I better skeedaddle. I hope you enjoyed my card tonight and if you think of it, hop over to the new Crazy 4 Challenges blog and play along. The new sketch for the week is up and ready as of this morning. Good Nite!
