I’ll Drink to That!

It’s time for another challenge with Kraftin Kimmie!  This week Donna is challenging everyone to create a monochromatic card.  

Luckily, I just received Basic Grey’s new Little Black Dress paper pad so that’s what I decided to use with Sophia.

I know…her hair is a little weird.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted her to be a blonde or a brunette with colored highlights.  So now she’s a brunette with yellow (and green?)  highlights.  Ha!

You can find more monochromatic samples on the Krafty Blog HERE.  If you’d like to play along with this week’s challenge, be sure to post a link to your creation there on the Krafty Blog for your chance to win a free Winnie image (as used by Donna on her challenge card).

You can find Frugal Friday specials, as well as a LOT of GREAT DEALS on clearance images HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

It’s Day 4 of November previews with My Favorite Things!   Today we’re sharing samples of two new stamp/die-namics combos:  Christmas Ornaments and Vintage Cameo.

I’ve used Christmas Ornaments Die-namics and Stamp set.  SO much fun!

I die-cut two ornaments from cardboard and one from the striped paper then stacked to create a covered chipboard look.  I die-cut one ornament top/hanger from cardboard then white cardstock and colored it with a R89 then E59 Copics.

I die-cut the Oval Decorative Doily from kraft cardstock.  The string was adhered by taping one end to the back, then bringing the other end to the front and taping (beneath the ornament).  The little bow was tied on separately.  I added the little pearls then adhered the oval to my cardfront using foam boosters.

The sentiment on the inside is from one of yesterday’s previews, Clearly Sentimental About Christmas.
