Just Wanted to Say 'HAY'!!! *giggle*



So this week on SCS they are having a rockin' good party with some 'Dare to Get Dirty' challenges and I SO wanna play!! There are three challenges each day plus EIGHT on Saturday and Sunday!! Unfortunately..........I have a JOB which keeps getting in the way!! Argh!! But I was able to do one of them this morning before work!

The challenge was to make a card FOR a pet, FROM a pet OR OF a pet! Well, I figured most people would be doing dogs or cats, so I pulled out my FAVOURITE Magenta Horsie stamp!! I stamped it in shimmery white cardstock with Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and used my Prismacolour pencils and Odourless Mineral Spirits to blend it, then added some shading with my Sahara Sand SU marker and doodled with my Black journaler. The patterned paper I used is my FAVE Basic Grey paper, Blush!! I LOVE the colour combos in it, so the cardstock I used for the card base and matting is Taken With Teal. I added some yummy grosgrain ribbon and stamped my sentiment on a BG tag and pop dotted the main image. The finishing touch was the pair of NEW jumbo eyelets in the corner!

HEY!!! Look at the counter over there!!! It looks like I've passed 30,000 visitors!! How FREAKIN' AWESOME is THAT????? I still can't believe people wanna come and look at MY stuff!! Wow!! Well, you know what that means.........a CHALLENGE..........with some Kimmie's Kandy!!! All you have to do is make a card using today's card as inspiration and link it here in this posting or email it to me. Since there are SO many challenges going on at SCS this week, I'll leave it open until next Friday night at midnight EST, so that you have a chance to join in the fun!! Then I'll pick a winner.....or maybe two!! Now WHAT should the prizes be?? I'll have to think about that one!! Have an awesome Friday!!! MWAH!!!

First of all I *love* the card that you made. The colors look wonderful together and I love the horse stamp that you used. How cute is he? Was your challenge for last Friday or this up coming Friday? Congratulations on reaching over 30,000. Why are you so surprised that so many people would stop by your blog? Your cards are always beautiful and speaking for myself, I always enjoy reading what you have to say.

dag nab! I was hoping to be the first one to post my card for your challenge! I even told people about your challenge in my upload of my card on SCS... aren't you proud, I'm not trying to hoarde the contest all to myself!
Anyways, I had an awesome time with your sketch! I love those jumbo eyelets, but hadn't used them on anything yet, so that was fun!
You can see my card on my blog:

You have completely bowled me over with this colour scheme. A gorgeous design too. Here's my take on the design.

I'm glad you reminded us. With the dirty dare on SCS, I totally forgot. This is the fastest card I've made all week. I used similar colors to yours and a horse! Wish I had your stamp - love that horse (and the mate). Here's my link:
