QKR Stampede Challenge

Hello my friends!  
Can you believe another weekend is upon us?  
It will be spring before you know it!  LOL!!  Well . . . not quite!

Today I'm thrilled to once again have my Guest Designer Hat on for QKR Stampede and our challenge theme today is SNOWMAN/SNOW ...

I've created a card using their digi image called Feeding the Birds (#digi10501).

I know EXACTLY who I'm going to send this card to.  Hubby & I are adamant about feeding the birds during the winter months and we have friends in PA who do the same ... I think they will enjoy this creation.

Papers - white cs, scraps of green cs, red cs, SU 2-sided Frostwood Lodge dp
Sentiment Stamp - Hero Arts
Ink - Versafine Onxy Black
Accessories - Gold Glitter Pen for squiggles, MS snowflake punch, Prismacolor markers, Spellbinder Classic oval dies, x-Press It High Tack Foam Mounting Tape

 After coloring my digi image, I decided to start my creation by looking for a fun sketch and after going through the files at Feline Playful, I found this one . . .
  . . . at Addicted To Stamps.   My snowman and oval panel behind him is actually ONE panel.  I forget the name of that technique but it's where you partially cut out your image then run it through the Cuttlebug ... it's called something like 'outside the circle' ... I'll have to do a little research and get back to you on that.

Here are a few other challenges this card fits:
Eclectic Ellapu - Snow Much Fun
Gingerloft Challenge - Christmas or Winter
Crafting by Designs - Snowman/Snowmen
Creative Belli  - Winter/Snowman
The House that Stamps Built - Make It Snow
The Perfect Sentiment - Winter Wonderland

So there ya have it!  I had great fun with both coloring this image & doing the sketch (two things I really do enjoy).  I hope you'll pop over to QKR Stampede ... check out the amazing creations by the design team ... then join in the challenge fun!  See you there!

Darlene, thanks for your blog address. Love your card. Your snowman is just to cute. He made me laugh as he is feeding the birds and that is something I like to do myself. I see I can follow you my mail, I also have feedblitz so I'm going to be one that will get your post by mail and become a follower also. So glad we got to talk.
