Penny's Challenge #17 - NO DP

Good Morning!
It's Wednesday and time for another Penny's Challenge but before I share my card with you I wanted to let you know about a CHANGE to Pennys Challenge ... here it is in Penny's words:

First, an announcement: starting this week Penny's
Challenges is now a bi-weekly challenge blog. So today's challenge is good until
December 8th. A New challenge will be posted December 9th. Hopefully we will see more participants this way too!

Now with that being said ... on to today's challenge! Today over on Penny's Challenge we are to use RANDOM STAMPING - NO DESIGNER PAPER! This was so much fun and I'm sure you'll LOVE getting involved in this one!! Be sure to use PC17 when uploading to other online galleries like PCP, SCS, etc. And, don't forget to upload a direct link to your creation to Mr. Linky on the Penny's Challenge Blog.

I decided to use an unusal color for today's holiday creation in order to use this beautiful K&Company chipboard "Dickens" image. The color I'm using is SU Bermuda Bay. Both the base card and the ink I've used with my Inkadinkado Snowflake image is Bermuda Bay. It seemed to match perfectly with this beautiful image. The only thing I added is this JoAnn's holiday ribbon. Easy peasy card to add to my long list of cards needed for sending to friends and family this year!

I hope you enjoy it and I hope you'll come play along! Please be sure to check out my design team sister's blogs for more NO DP inspiration. All links are available in my right sidebar.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Are you ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow??? Granddaughter, Morgan drove up early and will be helping me with the finishing touches! How much fun is that!! Well, I'd better get started ... oh wait ... she's not even out of bed yet ... what's up with that??? That's okay ... I guess that's one of the perks of staying at Nanna's house! Have a wonderful day!!
