I fell in love with the Cupcake Fairy (I know that isn't her name...). I printed her on Neenah Solar White and colored with my copic markers. A really fun image to color. I also used stickles to jazz up the frosting. I thought the blue hair was PERFECT!! On my card, my cardstock is Stampin' Up and the designer paper is Basic Grey. The sentiments are rub-ons...which I'm currently in a love/hate relationship with. The ribbon is Stampin' up. The flowers are Prima and the centers are from Toodles and Binks. I used Nesties to cut her out and a Bigshot Scalloped Circle to frame her, but that is a little hard to see. NEXT WEEK I'M PLANNING ON USING MY NEW MO'S FROM STAMPAVIE - whoooooo hooooo.

In my quest to complete a couple of challenges this weekend. I checked out Basic Grey which is one of my FAVORITE PAPERS and it was a sketch. It made me break down and mount a few stamps that I had bought at a papercrafts and stamping show from September :-(. I'm drawing a complete blank on the company that I bought unmounted rubber stamps of the rabbit elf. The company sold mounted and unmounted - they were fantastic. I'm hoping somewhere in my craft room I will find their business card - I know I specifically grabbed one so I could buy additional stamps from this collection.
For the challenge, my Basic Grey paper was the Figgy Pudding collection. A big favorite of mine but Eskimo Kisses is on the way from 7KidsCollegeFund. Maybe I will have a new favorite. I stamped the rabbit elf with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with copic markers, added Diamond Stickles to his hat, and added a small white pom pom for his tail. The remainder of the cardstock is from Bazzill Basics and Stampin' Up! The sentiment is from the stamp set "The Snowflake Spot" by Stampin' Up. The felt ribbon is SU!. The buttons are Basic Grey. The glittered C is from Michaels.
I have to admit that my Mo's images for this challenge were actually for last week's challenge but I didn't get beyond coloring and cutting out the images ;-). A couple new purchases for me including the Cupcake Fairy (I don't that is her official name), Christmas Tree, and Christmas Morn. The latter two we for the challenge. I printed on Neenah cardstock in "fast draft" on my HP and didn't color for 24 hours - my best recipe from all the ideas on PCP. I colored with copic markers and used stickles on the cuffs of the stockings and on a couple of the Christmas decos on the tree. The other cardstock and dsp is from Stampin' Up and Bazill Basics. The buttons are from a Basic Grey collection. The ribbon is SU!. I used 3 sets of nestabilities - I have sissix and a cricut - but I'm still a huge fan of nestabilities!! The sentiment is from Hobby Lobby (I think from Stampabilities). My new MO'S rubber stamps are on the way from 7KidsCollegeFund - CANNOT WAIT!
