Happy Friday Everyone!! Today is time for yet another Wags n Whiskers Challenge. The stamps are so darling and next week there is another new release coming out.

There is an AWESOME prize for one winner this week!! Are you ready?...

One lucky participant will win one of the NEW RELEASE stamps of your choice!!

Yes, you heard that right...

We are having a new release NEXT Friday - December 11th!!!

The Sneak Peeks will begin on Wednesday, December 9th...more on Thursday, December 10th...followed by a Blog Hop and Release on Friday, December 11th!

Click here if you would like to order a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp.

Here is my take on today's Challenge:

I used the stamp Budding Artist from Wags n Whiskers and colored her with Prisma color pencils and Gamsol. the ribbon trim at the top is made of greenish blue Memory box trim and a brown grosgrain ribbon that I ruffled. I distressed the edges with a distresser and also distressed the sides of my image panel and image with ink I have filled my can with craft goodies. Each year I buy new art supplies for my girls at Christmas as stocking stuffers and this year I plan to give them their own art supply can.

Can recipe:
Stamps: Wags N Whiskers- Budding Artist
Paper: SEI- Bisette dp, Bazill Bitter Chocolate, White cs
Accessories: Memory Box trim, brown grosgrain, buttons from stash, circle nestabilities, medium sized paint can

oh.....I want to welcome my dear friend, Michele Roos
, and former dt sister to the dt team at Wags N Whiskers. Michele is so creative and I just love her creations. Her coloring is awesome and her creations of flowers....oh my. Welcome Michele!!! I am excited to be working with you on Wags n Whiskers.
