Happy Friday! If you are here for the first Challenge for Wags N Whiskers, please scroll down to the next post since this is my second post for today. If you are here for the Inky Impressions Inky Drop Hop, then you are in the right place.



The weekend is upon us and Inky Impressions is adding a little more excitement and kicking off the weekend with a New Release of 5 CUTE stamps and a Blog Hop!!
If you came here from Jenn's Blog, then you are at the right place, if not, you may want to start back at the Inky Impressions Blog (Nicole's blog) for a chance to win. Somewhere on one of the stops along the way there is a prize hidden and none of us knows where it is so you will want to leave a comment on each stop along the way.

Today I would like to share 2 adorable images with you!!

The first card is a shaker card I created using the new Angelica's Snowman stamp. Isn't it such a sweet image? I colored the image with Prisma Color pencils and gamsol. The Inky drops you see on the snowflakes is a new item available at the store as is that gorgeous snowflake ribbon!! The dp is from the Eskimo Kisses pack from Basic Grey. I did sew on this card but it is difficult to see in the photo with the dry embossing I used to create texture. The snowflakes were made using the Spellbinders Create a Flake 1 die.

Card 2 is made using Ice Skating Rachel. The fun layout I used is from Mercy's Sketch Challenge this week. I water colored and paper toled Rachel with Distress Inks. Her fur was created with Liquid Applique. The dp is from Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses. (Can't you tell, I just love the patterns in this pad.) Again I used the Inky Drops in the Corners available at the store. The sentiment says: "When I think of you... I get the warm fuzzies." The panel behind the image is dry embossed with the Textile Embossing Folder. My panels each have sewing on them except for the image and sentiment panel which have been distressed with ink.


I have decided to offer this stamp to one lucky person. All you need to do is leave a comment here and I will randomly choose a winner on Sunday, November 15 (after the blog hop has ended).





Thanks for stopping here on the hop. I hope you have enjoyed my creations. Your next step is the oh so talented and sweet Kristine!! Enjoy the hop and your day. Don't forget that somewhere along the way a prize is hidden so you will want to make a comment on each blog for a chance to win.



blessings,
Chris
