Good Morning from chilly Millet, Alberta....we have had a little bit of snow...so I guess Winter is truly here...LOL. I love snowmen and this weather just has me dreaming of them. Thursday and you know what that means....you got it another challenge brought to you by 4 Crafty Chicks. First and foremost thanks so much to everyone who tried my sketch last week! It was sure a lot of fun!
I am soooooooo excited that we are on challenge #9 and the hostess-with-the-mostess is LORI!!! What is the challenge? Here it is: CHALLENGE #9 (4CCC-#9) is to USE PUNCHES/DIES on your creation! Love, love, love this challenge Lori...thanks so much for the fun! Now this week is an extra special week as it is a prize week, so please come join us and show us your inspirations!!
On my card the dies I used were Spellbinders (circle & scalloped circle), Stampin Up scallop border punch and their tiny circle punch (markers were copics and SU)! Oh and the dazzling diamonds and rub-ons are some of my fav's. I have been wanting to use this image that Lori gave me for my birthday for way to long.... Do you think it is cute?
I new which paper to use right away, but after doing 2 1/2 hours of math with Kaitlyn, my brain could not focus on a design. Card Patterns is one of my favorite sketch challenge blogs. I did change this one up just a little bit...hope that is okay. My image is centred and not on the bottom side and instead of a tag...well a scalloped border was calling me and I also turned my card. thanks for the awesome sketch ladies and all the DT's have beautiful work.
Other challenges my card will be entered into:
Fourth Friday Challenge - Holiday Cards
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes - my tip is to emboss your image before coloring! It just helps make it pop, no smudging and coloring a little easier.
Delightful Challenges - It's beginning to Look Alot Like Christmas
Wee Memories - Cute Holidays
The Crafty Pad - Christmas Theme
We are so excited each week to bring you challenges and we really hope you will hop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks and play! This week is also a prize week so come on and join us! Now my fellow DT's have really rocked out this Punches/Dies challenge to see what they used or did here are their links.
