Tell Me About The Good Ole Days

IT'S RAINING.....and boy do we need it.....and now on to a great challenge!

I love mornings that inspire me. Thanks to Gina K. Designs Challenge and Stampin Sisters In Christ BLOG.GINAKDESIGNS.COM/2009/09/14/sisters-in-christ-challenge-sponsor.aspx this card came to be.

For those of you who know me, snow people are my very favorite. When I saw the Sketch Challenge....I thought snow people and the rest is history. The rubber stamp is an older one, but one I love. It is a Sandi Gore Evans stamp licensed to Uptown Rubber Stamps. The name of the stamp is S'mores. To me it is a dad sharing stories with his child. The striped paper is unknown, it is affixed to Suede paper from Hot Off The Press, and of course... Dew Drops. The Hexagon is from Spellbinders as is the corner die. I used Tombow markers to color the image and Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink to highlight the hexagon. The edges were all chalked in Pumpkin, by Color Box Fluid Chalk . If anyone is looking for a great selection of suede papers, my favorite place is: Fran has tons of colors and two sizes of paper to choose from.

I'm off for a day of play with my cropping buddies. I am sure it will be a day of laughs and much productivity! I'm hoping to get a good start on my Christmas Cards, and work with Carolyn on a scrapbook page.

Have a wonderful week.....
