Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge

Today on Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog we have a Photo Inspiration Challenge for you!  I think this is the first time we've had an 'inspiration' challenge and it really made me think a bit!!  I like that!!
In keeping with the thought of trying to get enough ahead on Christmas cards that I can sell some and still have enough for ME to send, I decided to make another Christmas card for today's challenge.  The image I've used is from a local (Ohio, USA) artist called Stacy Stamps.  I purchased this stamp a couple of years ago and think this is only the 2nd time I've inked it up!  MY BAD!!  So, here we go!

I have used Prismacolor markers for the coloring on the sleigh then cut it out with a Fiskar's swivel craft knife.  The designer paper is Graphic45 'Christmas Past'.  After stamping the 'gifts' with Versamark and embossing with gold ep, I made a slit in the sleigh to make it look like the gifts were sitting on the seat ready to be delivered!   I also decided to add the Spellbinder die cut tree that I had laying on my worktable (for weeks) to the sleigh  . . . now it's ready for 'take off'!

Here's a closer view of the sleigh filled with it's goodies.  I used designer paper to die cut my tree ... then decorated it a bit with Stickles.  What do you think?

We would LOVE to have you come join us!  Today we are being sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads.  Be sure to pop on over to our Challenge Blog for all the winning details!  I can't wait to see what you create using our inspirational photo!  Have fun!

I, of course, won't be around tomorrow.  We are traveling to our daughter's house for Thanksgiving Dinner, then some R&R.  Enjoy your day everyone!
