Thank You Challenge

Happy Monday Morning All,

Is it still morning? Things have been crazy here, I don't even know what time it is! I do know that it's Monday and we are at the start of a new week and Monday also means a new Whimsy Challenges challenge!

Today we want to see you create something that says thank you. You can make a card, scrap book page, or alter an item. As long as it's a thank you creation, it will work! We will draw one winner at random to receive a free stamp. Head over to Whimsy Challenges to check things out! And remember, you do NOT need to use a Whimsy image to play along, but if you have one, why not use it!

This is my Thank You card. I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers and also added some ribbon to play in the new challenge site Pile it On! They are a fun site where you use their challenge as well as combining other challenges. Cool right, we all know how busy life can get some combining challenges is a perfect time saver!

The papers are BasicGrey Marrakech and SU! Night of Navy with Bashful Blue. My Whimsy Frog has been neglected so I used him for the image on this one. He's been colored with Copics and highlighted with gel pen. I cut him out and popped him up on foam tape. The background water around him is twinkling H2Os and crystal effects will stickles. I added some embossing with my Cuttlebug and then finished off with grosgrain ribbons, a bee charm, blue beads, flowers, buttons, and silver brads.

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out the Whimsy Challenges DT samples and if you are up for a challenge, join us! Have a great Monday, happy stamping! :)
