Sled Friends

     Due to a series of things, this post is much later than I intended it to be.  But at least I'm getting it posted now.

     Last Thursday, a brand new challenge blog started and it can be found here: MHK Designs .  Here's the inspiration photo for the January/February challenge, which runs from January 21 to February 16:


and here's my card using colors from the inspiration photo and using an image from the Sled Friends set by MHK Designs:

     I used my ProMarkers to color the image and die cut it with a simple circle die by QuicKutz.  I cut two more circles the same size and used them to make an offset mat.  The spotted dp is also from MHK Designs (You've Been Spotted - Brights.)  Because it's digital paper, I was able to adjust the size, squeezing it to get oval spots instead of regular polka dots.

     The black lace came from my stash and the black pine cones are die cuts (Memory Box.)  Finally, I added a small, black bow, one of those I make by the dozens and toss in my stash for future use.  The sentiment is my own.

     I'm thrilled to be part of the MHK Designs DT !  I love Mynn's artwork and the vintage images she creates.  You'll be seeing lots more posts showcasing her work next month.  If you see things you like, come join the challenge.   You don't have to use an MHK Designs image, but we're just thrilled when you do.  :-D  You could win these two sets of images and also a set of papers, if you enter.


     Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Congrats on the new design team Connie!!! Fabulous!
Love this pretty card and that image just makes me wish I lived where it snowed all the time - almost! Such fun and your card is beautiful.
I'm slowly trying to ease back in a little bit. Things are starting to look up a little more or maybe we're just getting used to it all now.

Please send me a message about Die Cuttin' Diva prize! I have not seen the goes into an account that I do not access (another team member does). I read the comments from the challenge blog and manage those. I will follow up immediately. I wish you would have sent something to me personally, so I could have handled this sooner! I am sorry you have had this terrible experience. I hope we can resolve it soon! Send me some an email with some background info!

Oh you brought me right back to my childhood with this one. Thank you for that. Just a lovely card with very pretty colors. We only have a couple of inches of snow so far and I think it will fizzle out before we get too much.
