Well, amazing how less than 12 hours can turn a day from great to awful.  Yesterday was a wonderful day – it was my husband’s birthday, I got to meet him for lunch (which NEVER happens), we had a nice dinner and sang to him.  Then, around midnight, my younger son came in our room and said he had gotten sick, and about 5 hours after that, my younger daughter got sick.  Just praying nobody else in the house gets it.

Anyhow, we have a GREAT NEW CHALLENGE for you today at THE PIXIE COTTAGE and it is EMBOSSING and/or SKETCH.  I can’t wait to see what everyone creates.  Remember, you have until Tues., January 24 at 11:59pm CST to play along.  We’d love to see you use an image from MICHELLE'S SCRAPBOOKING and MORE, but it is not required to play in our challenge.  You will want to go check out the shop, however, as new inventory is arriving daily!!

For my creation today, I used SAVANNAH and SMILES by ALISA RAMIREZ.  I stamped the image using Memento Ink then colored using Copics.  Really been working on my shading and creating depth recently and very pleased with how this turned outSmile  Image cut with Nesties as is My Mind’s Eye DP behind it.  Other DP also from My Mind’s Eye and CS is Core-dinations.  Sentiment is from Clear and Simple stamps, cut with Nesties and Hero Arts bling added.  Ribbon is from Offray.  Embossed piece done with folder from Lifestyle Crafts.
