Good Morning! It is Thursday which means that it is time for another challenge and look to see who is the guest designer….ME! I hope that you like the sketch that I submitted and that you will PLAY! Please pop over to the PPA Website to see the FUN cards that the other designers came up with – FUN to the max!

This was a fun and super fast card to make! It has many different elements that create instant texture (the Polka Dot Embossing Folder) and then cutting the Candy Cane Lane DSP to get the stripes – both super easy but create a fun and whimsical look!

You know that I adore water-coloring and this was not the best example to go wild (which will probably make many of you happy) as it was just the aqua painter had a date with crumb cake and then a touch of blushing bride to add a “wee bit” of blush to my friends cheeks!

This is the stamp set that our friend came from…and YEP – it is a bundle and if I were you , I would purchase it as a bundle. I bet that you think I alwys buy the bundles. Usually I do but there are time that I don’t….it just all depends if you think that you will use both items!

Remember that using shapes like circles, squares, rectangles etc….for a focal part is a great “safe base” for clean and simple cards! By using a focal point like these shapes, it sets the stage for the card….and then work outward to get the look you are going for!

To me, polka dots are TOTAL FUN….I actually have (2) of these folders as one is sooooo worn and I was afraid if it was ever discontinued, I would be sad! I use this one a bunch as it is just plain FUN!

I knew that I wanted to get a sentiment in….so I sneaked it in as a banner, worked out great! The font and sentiments in this set are great. I think that this brings out the inner child in us….such an adorable reindeer!
