It's Friday and it's another Stamp Something Challenge!

Hi All!  Happy Friday!  I'm so glad it is!  Today at Stamp Something, the challenge is Glitzy!  We want to see glitter, gems, sparkle, etc!  I went with lots of glitter and sparkle! Our sponsor this week is Paper Maniac!  I decided to use an image they sell, so I used the Whimsy Mice.  I cut out the letters and free hand drew in the word "Merry."  I colored the 2 brown mice with water color pencils. The center mouse was colored with a silver glitter gel pen and water color pencil. The paper is BG.  I used a "rustic" stocking charm and a Prima with a jeweled brad to embellish...and a MS Snowflake punch to make the snowflake which I covered with chunky white glitter.  If you like this, please visit the DT to see what else they came up with!  Also, if you like the Whimsy Mice, stop over at Whimsy and check out the Advent Event!  You could win some Whimsy Stamps!

This card fits the following challenges:

The Pink Elephant:  Favorite coloring medium (watercolor pencils)
Stamp With Fun:  Christmas
Creative Card Crew:  Christmas
Paperplay:  Christmas (no red or green)

Whimsy Challenge and more!

Happy Monday!  What a day today is going to be after a nice long weekend!  Ahhh.  Well it also means that we have a new challenge for you over at Whimsy Stamps!  We are having a Monochromatic challenge this week!  I went with a blue color pallet (the picture is not true colors...I couldn't get it to look the same!) and the Whimsy Hippo!  The layout is from Lili of the Valley. Everybody Art Challenge, Charisma Cardz, and Stamp, Scrap & Doodle wanted a Christmas card.  Ildi Co wanted a Christmas song inspired card.  Though it's hard to see, mine says in silver "I want a hippopotamus..."  and inside says "For Christmas!"  ABC was I for Indigo blue...I didn't have indigo, so I went with shades of blue. Fun with Shapes and more was monochrome blue.  That's it for now! Please, jump on over and visit the rest of the DT's pages and shop Whimsy!  Come back tomorrow to learn more about the Whimsy December Advent Event!
