What can I say about today...we had a NO school day due to the cold weather -40 this morning. I babysat my little man today who was also feeling off, so it made for a good day of 4 kids bouncing off the walls. I did manage to do some blog surfing today. There are so many awesome ones out in blogger land. I just found out tonight that tomorrow is also a NO school day due to the cold weather. My kids need to run, but can't go outside right now...crafting in the next few days just might save my sanity...LOL.
Tonight I am doing two challenges in one. The first one is the Sweet Sunday sketch challenge. She has some really amazing sketches, so when you get a chance check it out. The second challenge I found was on my friend Melissa blog, it is through Moxie Fab World. In this challenge you had to make a christmas card with any kind of animal big or small. I made some scary deer's...LOL. It just might send you all running...hee hee.
On to more good times...tonight I was talking with my very good friend, Lori and she had some more christmas cards to make and I suggested this sketch...LOL. Next thing I knew she was throwing out a challenge to me. What was the challenge you say? To make the same card sketch, with the same stamp but we each did our own colors. I haven't seen Lori's yet (I can't wait to pop on over) so please stop by her blog to check out her wonderful creations.
Yes, my deer's have glowing eye's I picked up the wrong color of marker (oops!!). I think they were blinded by the light and look kind of guilty...LOL. What do you think? This is a different looking group of Reindeer's. My jury is out right now (It looked a little different in my head. :0). It was an easy card and a blast to make. I hope you enjoy it. Thank you so much to The Sweetest thing for a wonderful sketch, I highly recommend it to everyone.
