Make Like a Tree......and Leave!!!


Yikes-a-bee!!!!! I am just floating on air this morning and I'll tell you why!!!

Have you been over to Splticoaststampers lately?? There are some AH-MAAAAAAAZING artists over there and although I join in some of the daily challenges for inspiration, I know I'm not really in their league.

Well, I had last weekend off from work and I had some time to craft in my studio so I joined in on some of the Virtual Stampin Night challenges.....4 of them to be exact. I've already shared two of them with you....the 2,4,6,8 box and the Lovey Hedgehog card. Well, last night they posted the list of the hostess favourites in each challenge..........and my name is up there TWICE!!! Mother of Pearl!!.....I prit' near had a heart attack!! I got all teary and sappy!! I just couldn't believe that two of my cards got chosen as faves!!

So anyway, I'm going to share one with you today!! This one was made for a challenge called 'Make Like a Tree.....and Leave!!' All the challenges had to do with 'Fall' so they all had cool names! The challenge was to create a card for someone leaving or a bon voyage card or a sympathy card. Well, my little 'Waddle I Do Without You?' stamps by High Hopes were perfect for this challenge!!! I chose soft colours for this one and used some lovely Tres Jolie papers by My Mind's Eye and chose my colours from there. I stamped my duckie in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink on shimmery white cardstock and coloured him in using my SU markers in Barely Banana, Apricot Appeal and Gable Green, then doodled the little frame. The card base is So Saffron and I matted using Gable Green on the top and bottom pieces and Apricot Appeal on the middle. The sketch is actually from the Card Positioning Systems website. I stamped the sentiment straight on the bottom, punched the edges with my slot punch and added some polka dot organdy ribbon. Then I added three prima flowers with white brads and pop dotted the focal image!!

I'll share the other card with you next time but if you'd like to see the list of all the challenges and favourites, just click here!!
