A few card challenges...


Hey everybody!

It's time for Merry Monday...on Tuesday. I always seem to enter on Tuesdays.

The challenge is to add stripes and/or polka dots.


I used some striped DP on this card, no polka dots.  The cute skating penguin is from" Winter Wonderland" Clear Stamps, stamped on a Lil Inker stitched circle, and colored with markers. I added a snowflake and mini button. The sentiment is from Heidi Grace, "Believe."

I'm also entering this card at two new challenges for me...one at Pixies Snippet Playground, my snippet being my snowflake.

And over at Holly Jolly Christmas, it's anything goes!


Have a great day!

Hi Laurie, Lovely to see your cute penguin skating at the playground. Your border stripes really made this little guy fairly pop on this card. Just became your newest follower, and look forward to seeing you in the Snippets Playground. Hope you'll pop over for a visit to see me if you have time. TFS & Happy Sunday.
