Happy Friday! This week we have our final challenge of the year from Chrismtas Stampin' All Year Long. It's kind of a sad time for me, as it is also going to be my last challenge as part of the Design Team. So many other things I need and want to do, so I have to step down. : (
The last challenge of the year is Anything Goes. We are going to have 4 winners this week with prizes from 4 of the sponsors we have had throughout the year. So, come on and play along! We are also going to have 3 winners picked at random from comments on each of the DT blogs. So that is 7 winners in all this week! You can see a list of all the sponsors with their prizes and the list of blogs to visit when you stop by the CSAYL blog.
Here's the hop list:
Heather Mills (that's me!)
I created my card with an adorable little monkey from Meljen's Designs (one of our fabulous sponsors this year). Isn't he cute?
I had the image sitting on my desk and decided to color him up. I stamped a hat from a JustRite Stampers set, colored it and cut it out. Then I added some white flocking powder to the brim and pompom and attached it to the monkey's head. It is a perfect fit and looks like it belongs on the image. I made a little snow globe and filled it with some chunky glitter. Due to some not-planning ahead issues (anyone else ever have those?) the image was off center in the globe, but I made it look intentional by curving a clear sentiment and stamping it inside the globe. Problem solved!
Thanks so much for stopping by, specially those of you that came for the Blog Hop/Final Challenge from CSAYL.
