Head over to the current PIP Challenge 2304 NOW!
This week's challenge is a THEMED challenge...
Here's what I made for the challenge.
I used a heart stencil, I had in my stash of
stuff, and used a pink ink. My little Polkadoodles
was colored with Copics and TriBlend
markers. I cut this guy out by hand. Fortunately
I enjoy fussy cutting sometimes. The 
sentiment was from a random set but it is
perfect for a friend of mine going through
some depression. Prayers will go with the card too!

We REALLY appreciate our sponsors!

Here is my project for the challenge...
Such fun playing around with all the fun
I used SY Polar Opposites for this card!
Anyone that really knows me knows I 
LOVE POLAR BEARS! This set is just so
cute and fun to play with. The images were
fussy cut out after I colored them with my
Copic markers. I raise the framed panel
and the penguins. Then I raised the Polar
Bear. It was a simple card and certainly
makes me smile. Hope you're smiling too!!

Here's my card!
Since I just made it to Florida the 1st of Jan.
this image could be me. HAHAHA! I just 
love Beccy's images and sentiments!
I used Copics and SN TriBlend markers
to color the image. I used daubers and
ink pads to create the scene. I took a shrub
stamp and added some "growth" on the
beach. This card will go to a friend back in
Wisconsin who desperately NEEDS some sun!!

just too cute. I colored my sweet little 
kitty with Copic and TriBlend markers.
I fussy cut it out. The sentiment bubble
and sentiment were from two different

this kitty and will be a wonderful birthday
card for my cat loving sister-in-law.

behind the image which is raised using
