7 Kids College Fund Challenge

Hello happy campers! I have been keeping it a secret until my first challenge!  I am now proud to announce that I am on the 7 Kids College Fund Design Team!! Can you tell I am smiling big time?! Last spring I had the pleasure of meeting Tab, owner of 7 Kids at her store. Oh my gosh, I could have spent my life savings in a heartbeat for she had it all. My favorite stamps, paper, embellishments, glitter, flock - you name it and she had it. Seriously, we almost missed our plane for I just wanted to pick everything up and look at it! I was also looking for a particular Christmas tree embellishment that was discontinued and Tab kept searching every vendor until she found several  for me:) So remember if you are looking for something special and can't find it anywhere - drop Tab a line and trust me, if it is out there, she will find it!

The Stores Challenge for the next two weeks is Festive Holiday and I used this sweet image by Silvia Zet. I had a lot of fun with her.  She was stamped using  Momentum Black Tuxedo Ink onto X-press It Copic paper and I colored her with my Copics. I cut her fur collar and muff out and coated them with Cotton Ball White Fun Flock and created a 3 D vision by raising them on Pop It's. The snow flakes were cut out with a Fiskar punch and I  coated them with Quick Dry Adhesive and sprinkle them with Star Dust Stickles Dry Glitter - yep you can now buy Stickles as a dry glitter and I love it! I used a Friskar Border punch on the bottom of the card and  Spellbinders Scallop Oval Die to cut out my sentiment!

I wish you could see how sparkly the glitter snow fakes are.


Entering the following challenges:
