It's getting closer & closer to that big day & I hope you are well ahead on your shopping & card making! I'm a bit behind, but I guess that is to be expected with the move. The good news is that I work well under pressure! ha ha
The QKR Stampede challenge for today is to make a Christmas card using non-traditional colors. I started by chosing this adorable Eureka digi # 3006 - Polar Bear Present and then pulling out the boxes of Christmas paper in my closet. Yes....BOXES! Christmas has always been my most favorite holiday and I cannot walk past a sale on Christmas paper without stopping. And once I do, at least one 12 X 12 pad finds it's way into my cart! I am so proud of myself though! Since the move to Lincoln, I have not purchased a single sheet of paper of ANY kind, which is a record for me! I think the boxes & boxes of paper the movers unloaded was my "ah hah" moment and I realized just how much paper I had been hoarding.
Back to the challenge! Here is my take on non-traditional.
I grabbed one of my Memory Box dies (Hanover Snowflake) and cut two of them & layered them for extra dimension. I also went over the entire bear with Wink of Stella for some added sparkle, although it doesn't show up well here.
Head on over to the QKR Stampede blog and submit YOUR entry! It's a great way to add to your card stash and be entered for a chance to win some adorable digi stamps at the same time!
