I am entering a Challenge!! Yeah!



Can you even believe it??? I have a card made for a challenge and not just one but three challenges!
Seems like forever since I just looked up a great challenge and went to create something just for it....



Shelly's Images is sponsoring Stella's Sketch challenge at Bugaboo Stamps  until January 15th and that is the terrific sketch at the top of my post. It was a lot of fun to use as a starting point. I used Shelly's images "pine" and "Christmas cardinal". I re sized the pine and then rotated the image for the second block. I love these images and look forward to using them again soon. I added a little bit of stickles to create my snow on the fence and pine cones.

Challenge 78 at Papercraft Star is Winter and I love to play in their challenges! Be sure to check out this great site!

Stamps R Us is asking us to use what we got for Christmas or Anything Goes and since these are new stamps for me I think it will count or at least as anything goes! I always love seeing what my friend Kathy at the Lucky Stamper has to show us each time. Thanks Kathy for the nudge to play.

I used Papertrey Ink white card stock and dp's from Teresa Collins Christmas Home, even though I love these any time of year , and Stampin' Ups cherry cobbler.
My border punch is by Martha Stewart....thanks for stopping by for a visit! I appreciate you.

Have a great rest of your week and be sure and give these sites a visit.

Oh Patti, I love your card! The birds remind me of my husbands great grand mother. For the last 17 years we have been married she has sent us cards with some sort of lovely image with birds, I better call her today :)
