Lucy's challenge & a cased card



Our super sweet friend Lucy is hosting her very first color challenge on her blog using her favorite colors: kraft, light pink, and aqua. Even with our Thanksgiving holiday, this week isn't as hectic for me--no Hero Arts challenge--and I'm glad that I was able to play in between the pre holiday baking. The challenge is open to anyone, anywhere and the deadline is December 1st. Head over to Lucy's blog for all the details and join the fun!

Stamps : Hero Arts, Hero Arts digi, Basic Grey sentiment
Cardstock: Stampin Up
Ink: Papertrey Ink, Versafine
Other: Copic markers for coloring, Nestabilities, Stampin Up Sizzlits,
Hero Arts gemstones, pop dots



This snowman card is a 99.9% lift from a girl named Teri, who happens to live in Hawaii. She does awesome projects and cards and I saw this snowman card on her blog and fell in love with it.

My original plan was to use another image, but I had the same Rachelle Anne Miller snowman and, with Teri's permission, I decided to use the same image as she did. And the Nestabilities pendant die arrived with perfect timing. I did use a different embossing folder and I substituted with the blossom die, but it's a definite lift.

Thank you, Teri! Please visit her blog for lots of creative ideas and inspiration.

Stamps: Stampavie, Savvy Stamps
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Memento, Copic markers for coloring
Other: Nestabilities dies, Cuttlebug, Hero Arts gems, Glossy Accents, ultrafine glitter, pop dots
