Be My Friend

*For the Whimsy Blog Stroll, please click HERE! You have until tomorrow noon EST to join us!*

Morning All!

Hope you're having a great day so far! I've been busy trying to get some chores done around the house, but I decided to sneak in a stamping break!

I made a card today using a few of the new challenges for this week and a neglected stamp! I've been making holiday cards lately, so I've taken a little break to make something different.

I started with this sweet Sugar Nellie Braveheart image and colored it with Copics in browns and gray. I highlighted with white gel pen and then cut it out with my circle nesties. The sketch is from Inspirational Card Sketches. I really like the simplicity to this one, I will definitely use it again sometime!

I went with a blue and green color scheme and added some retired SU! paper from last holiday season. This paper and my white gel pen dots fit the challenge at PaperTake Weekly of "Spots n' Stripes." I've embellished with ribbon, hardware, brads and buttons and a flower. I also distressed the edges of some of my layers to fit the "Rip It Up" challenge at My Time to Craft. I love distressing so this challenge was right up my alley!

Thanks for dropping by today! I'm off to finish my housework, hope you have a great afternoon! Happy Stamping! :)

Aaah, this is delightful. Love the design, colours and textures and of course I think the little mouse is perhaps too friendly with kitty ...
