Challenge and a RAK



Good evening everyone! I have two cards to post tonight. The first is a challenge card for the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog and Papertake Weekly challenge. The WOJ challenge was to create a Christmas card without red or green and the papertake challenge was a sketch. I used my new Herb with figgy pudding stamp from WOJ. I think I took quite a few creative liberties with the coloring on both Herb and figgy pudding, but oh well:) The sentiment is from Whimsy stamps. The paper is all SU and is pink pirouette and choc. chip. Herb is colored in with watercolor crayons and an aquapainter.

The second card is a RAK for a family of a brand new baby that needs lots of love and prayers sent her way. Andrea is organizing a card drive to send cards and wishes to baby Francesca and her family. Please visit her blog for details on how you can help. I used Sahara sand and pink pirouette along with my favorite SU stamp set, buggies and booties. Big hugs to Andrea for putting this together and to baby Francesca.

Thanks for stoppin' by!
