Does anyone know what time it is?

That's right . . . 

It's CHALLENGE time!!! 

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!  

Once again, it's challenge time over at Clear It Out Challenge.  Time to put away the groceries and put away the bills . . .   and get your crafty on.  And usual, our AMAZINGLY fearless leader, Laura,  has come up with yet another AWESOME challenge for us . . . and it's so easy, peasy!!! So get out your paper, scissors, glue  and . . . 

 Are you ready???

I didn't hear you . . . 

Are you ready???

Okay, it's challenge time!!!

Theme:  Layer It Up
Stash: Designer Papers\ 

And you have 1 week to play (till Jan. 20th)

This week our sponsor is:

For this week's challenge, I choose an adorable digi image called "Snow Mail" from StampArt by Kathryne . . . and it came with some bonus sentiments. Here's how my card turned out:

PB&J paper collection by Basic Grey
Indie Girl paper collection by Sassafras
miscellaneous gems
Stickles - Crystal
Liquid Pearls - Opal
Copics -
G0000, BG000 & B000 (snowman & snow)
C1 & C3 (shadow on snow & postcard)
R24 & R27 (bird, heart)
E44 & E47 (twig arms)
B95, B97, Y21 (hat, scarf & buttons)
BG0000, BG000, BG10 ("halo")

As you may notice, this card is a "copy" of a card that I did a week or two ago.  This is because I got my themes mixed up this week.  I thought this week was to copy a project I did.  But when I went to post it, I realized the theme was "Layer It Up". Oops! Thankfully the card still worked because not only did I really like my card, but I LOVED how my image turned out and didn't want to try to color it again. :)

As I said, this is a "copy" but you will notice a few differences --- the banners are different, the red gems are bigger and the turquoise ones are smaller & in a different location. Also, the turquoise paper is from another paper collection --- "Indie Girl" by Sassafras.  The rest of the paper is "PB&J" paper from Basic Grey. I also used "Crystal" Stickles on the snow and "Opal" Liquid Pearls on the snowman's hat.  So even though I "copied" this card, I think it turned out pretty good (again). lol  What can I say? . . . once I make/design something or find a color combination I really like, I like to use it again. Or as some say "Why mess with a good thing?"

Till the next time I'm up in the night.  Kathy

Oh my goodness, so glad I'm not the only scatterbrain that mixes up the challenges. I now have a book but that idea is not perfect either. Your card is so so cute, love that snowman, and fabulous amount of the "stash" item.


This is too cute. Love the banners and your use of the liquid pearls. Hugs, Sujin
