Challenge Fun before Turkey Day

I will more than likely be busy for the next couple of days in preparation for Thanksgiving so I have a couple of challenge creations to share with you in this combined post.

Anita Be Stampin' is a new challenge blog and it would be great if you could come play and show her support!  Here's a peek at today's Challenge #2 sketch and . . .

here's what I've come up with

I have made an A-6 size card and flipped it horizontally.  This is one of Anita's digi images called 'Tallulah' ... isn't she cute!!  I'm still in need of more holiday cards so that's my 'theme' today.  

Here's the recipe for this creation:
Papers: White cs, Graphic45 dp, DCWV dp, Basic Black cs, Kiwi green cs
Inks:  Versafine black
Accessories:  Prismacolor markers, Fiskars swivel craft knife, Nestabilities classic & scallop circles & ovals, Michael's holiday ribbon, pop dots, SU scallop border punch

Another weekly challenge I love being a part of is the Crafty Secrets Challenge over on the forum at SCS.  Today Marcy is our hostess and she has asked us to "Shape it Up".  That means using that punches, diecuts, stencils, templates ... anything that creates a Shape ... of course and use it along with your Crafty Secrets / Heartwarming Vintage products for your creation.  Here's what I created using my new Sizzix Mittens & Snowflake die.

I have also used Martha Stewart icicle border punch & snowflake punch.  Other products used in this creation are:
Papers:  Graphic45 dp, Christmas green & red cs, baby blue cs
Image:  Crafty Secrets Christmas Booklet
Accessories:  Offray red satin ribbon, Stickles, 

Thanks so much for stopping by and we (Mark & I) wish you each a wonderful Thanksgiving!
