Head over to the current PIP Challenge 2404 NOW!
Here's what I made for the challenge.
Well, a fifth Monday of the month and it's 
a CAS challenge. So, I used a fun set from
and there are loads of digis and papers. I
just kept this card very simple and will
probably add the Gnome on the inside
in the future. I used Copics to color the
images and raised the BBQ sentiment
with some mounting tape. It was a super
simple card. Maybe not a fave of mine
but certainly is usable. lol!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

PIP Challenge 2403

 PIP Challenges has a wonderful NEW sponsor

It's always fun getting to find new stuff
and a great sponsor as well! YAY!
Here's my card...
Since I'm in Florida until April I am 
missing my 4 year old grandson...my
ONLY grandchild. So, naturally I have to
send him lots of cards and fun little boxes
of treats while I'm here and he's back in
Wisconsin, AND THE COLD! Florida
is cooler than normal but NOT like in WI.
I used a random heart stencil to ink onto
a card front. I used 2 different pinks. Then
I colored my little hedgehog with Copics and
cut him out and raised him, and the "ZZZs"
bubble. I layered the sentiment onto black
and raised that up too. Then I stamped
the inside and colored the hearts.

I colored the image with TriBlend markers.
I used some great background paper that
accented all the kitty colors. I raised up 
the sentiment and that was pretty much
the simplicity of a cute and easy card.
