Polar Surfing

I created this sketch myself. Aren't you all so proud? LOL I thought it would make a neat design to work with. I didn't draw one out just created the card so you will have to go by the picture of the card to get the idea.

I used again Polar Express and used markers to color him. I used retired snowflake paper from SU. I love this paper and wish I had more. To bad they retired it. The basic card is done on lt. blue textured paper and you can't see it in the scan but it has snowflakes stamped on it with white craft ink. For the circles I used the coluzzle and used the second to last line for the snowflake and for the black I used the last line.

If you make a card using this sketch please share with me by putting it in the comment area if posting your blog. Or if you give the link to it on SCS. I would really like to see what everyone does with this sketch.
Starting tomorrow I will be using a different stamp set. I know I can hear you all going WooHoo! So check back tomorrow and see what I have in store for you.

Last of the Swap

Hope you are all enjoying these. This one is flying high! Ginny Smith made this really neat kite card. The monkey is having fun flying around. He can see the world from way up high. Ginny used the slot punch to make the scalloped circle the monkey is on. Here you see the kite closed. You unwrap the kite string and inside is a surprise. This is such a cute idea, I am sure I will be making these for Birthday cards for the kids. What kid wouldn't like this as a card?
Instead of Thanks a bunch put in Happy Birthday. I love that monkey stamp and now have another reason to use it. Thanks Ginny for joining the swap and for all you girls letting me post them on my blog to share for all to see.
