Wow! For the first time ever I have been able to complete (and post) a challenge on the same day it was thrown down! Whoo Hoo! Thank you Lord for one last snow day of 2011! In my world...Snow Day = stamping for OWH, how about you?
This week's Midweek Throwdown Challenge is to make cards for our heroes to send home to their kids, they can be any occasion, birthday, etc. I chose birthday because I also wanted to enter the first challenge over at Birthday Sundaes which is a brand new blog that is all about building your stash of birthday cards. I invite everyone to check it out - it looks like it is going to be a lot of fun!
Can you believe it? Yes! I did use a digital stamp and I DID color it! Big shock I know. tee hee. I used Stampin' Up! markers (Real Red, Gable Green, Green Galore, Blush Blossom, More Mustard, Really Rust, Black, and Bliss Blue.) The card stock is also SU! (Real Red and Gable Green) except for the card base which is from my bulk stash. The background paper is by Basic Grey and was a gift from a new Facebook friend, Ellen Deckinga - Thanks Ellen! The digital image was free but I will have to look on my computer at work to tell you where I got it - Update: The website for this freebie is Cuddly Buddly Crafts and you can get yours here. The layout is an adaptation of S & S Sketch #06.
I love to read your comments and will happily visit your blog if you will leave me your address!
Happy Stamping and God Bless!
