A Teddy For Paige

Good Monday Morning!

Hope you are all having a great Monday! It's a long weekend here in the States, so we are enjoying some family visits and fun at home. Everything is back to normal tomorrow though with school and work.

I have a special card to share today. One I made a for a special cause and a couple challenges too. This card uses a brand new Whimsy Stamps digital image, called a Teddy for Paige. We are very excited to release this digital stamp as all the proceeds from the sale of this image will benefit Paige Welch, Erin's neighbor who was seriously injured in a boating accident this summer. To read more about Paige's story, click HERE. We hope you will help us in our efforts by purchasing this new digital image and using it to make a card for Paige!

I used the sketch from Sketch and Stash along with some older papers. I used red and brown cardstock to work with the colors of my image. The images was colored using Copics and highlighted with a white gel pen. Today's challenge at Whimsy Challenges is to use sewing, faux or real, on your card. I used my paper piercer and a gel pen and marker to create my faux stitching. Then I embellished with some circle buttons and brads to fit the C is for Circles challenge at ABC Challenge.

Thanks for dropping on by today. To read more about our cause to help Paige, visit the Whimsy Stamps home page or Erin's blog. Thanks! Happy stamping! :)
