Holiday Hoots

Good morning 🙂  This post is bittersweet.  Sweet, because I was asked to come back as GDT on the Come and Get It Challenge for the month of December for their huge Christmas challenge.  Bitter, because, at the end of the month, the challenge will be closing down 🙁  I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Cindy, Julie, and all the other ladies for asking me back,  for the great time I had as DT, and for the years of a wonderful challenge <3

This Christmas challenge has a ton of sponsors, which means, a ton of prizes to be won.  Be sure to check out the blog for all the details!  I used  Christmas Gift, from the  Twiggy and Toots collection at  Polkadoodles for my card.

I colored this sweet image up with my SN and Copic markers, then stamped a sentiment, before distressing, inking, and stitching around the edges.  I did the same with a piece of green plaid DP, then lay everything out, adding sparkly fishtail banners with red gems.  I do hope that you can join us this month, to make it a farewell that we will all cherish!!

Good morning all 🙂  We are already past the half way point of November…and into another brand new ATG challenge at Creative Fingers!  Our sponsor this time is one of my favorites for adorable animal images….Wink Wink Ink

I was given the image Night Owl, to use on my project.  An owl and coffee…..how much more ME can you get 😉  I colored him up with my Prismacolor pencils, then fussy cut him out.  I had purchased coffee DP paper on a recent girls weekend I had with a friend, and this card was perfect to use it on 🙂  The coffee cup background, the flower background that I die cut with a stitched die, and the sparkly border piece were all from different sheets of the same set 🙂  I used this sketch, from Feeling Sketchy as inspiration for the layout.

Sketch #181

The sentiment was stamped with a LDRS stamp, then die cut out.  I die cut a flourish, to mimic a bit more steam, and the card was done 🙂  I hope that you can join us with any of your creations at the challenge, we’d love to see your work!!
