7 Kids College Fund Challenge - Thank You

Hello everyone - Yeah!! The weekend is upon us once again and I couldn't be happier. I really cannot wait until I retire (I know it is still at least 10 years away - one can dream though). I will be spending so much more time in my craft room. Work really does get in the way - oh well - I guess I need to work to support this obsession. I am grateful and blessed to be able to have a beautiful area to craft in and for the time I do get to spend in there. Over at 7 Kids College Fund there is a fantastic challenge - all you have to do is use one of the images that 7 Kids College Fund sells (that in itself is easy to do) and it must be a thank you card. Since I am really well into the Christmas card making mood - I decided to use a Christmas image for a thank you card. I used my new Stampavie stamp and colored in this adorable image with my copic markers (E49, E35, E33 and E31). I then cut the entire image out (that was not easy). I paper pieced the bow and ribbon. The paper is from the Basic Grey Jovial paper pack. The sentiment is computer generated. I used Tim Holtz distress inks on most edges. The leave in the background is a Magnolia die cut. I added some SU corners around the sentiment and some green ribbon on the bottom. I glued some gold dew drops around the nesty circle and that pretty much does it. Oh I forgot to mention this challenge at 7 Kids - well you have a chance at winning a $75.00 gift certificate (maybe I shouldn't have mentioned that - the less people that know the better my chance is - lol!!) darn - I just can't be that nasty - I hope you get a chance to play along and wish you good luck in the draw. I am off to bed - I hope you have a great weekend - I don't have any plans other than doing some house work and hopefully getting some more Christmas cards done. Bye for now

Your stamping friend, Debbie
