Two Challenges:  Mojo Monday #479 & Global Design Project #069

Is anyone tired of winter yet?  After a weekend of treacherous snow and ice here in the Pacific Northwest and even worse weather in many other parts of the country, we deserve a break wouldn’t you agree?  Well that is a bit of what we did today as we snuggled into our work spaces and got creative.   We all used the sketch from the Mojo Monday site and Robyn included the Global Design Project challenge into her card.  Here is the Mojo sketch we used:

I’m using that sweet snowman stamp from a few weeks ago that I just love.  He is so simple and irresistible that I just had to use him again.  He is from Whipper Snapper Designs and if you are into whimsical designs, you might like to checkout their site. Their stamps will make you smile.  My coloring was done mostly with pastel pencils and just a bit of watercoloring around the snowman’s face.  Coupled with a snowflake die I got just before Christmas and some fun dotted & checked papers here is my card:


Stamp:  Twigs-Whipper Snapper Designs

Die:  Layered Snowflake- Reverse Confetti

Paper:  Petite Prints-Doodlebug Designs (dots)

                Apples & Cheeriesy-Magnolia Ink

Robyn created her card with both the Mojo Monday and Global Design Project in mind. Here is the GDP sketch she used:

She was drawn back to her hedgehogs for her card today as they seem to be very lucky for her.  (More about that later.)  She added bright green for her ‘choice’ color in the GDP challenge and it makes a fun accent to the Silver & Delightful Dijon.

Now for a bit of good news:  Our gal Robyn was chosen as a Top Six Pick for a recent Can You Case It? challenge.   You can check out her cute card here.   She gets our ‘You Go Girl’ gold star. ⭐️  Well deserved congratulations Robyn!  Her fun hedgehog was so sweet in that card.  We will see if we have a repeat with this week’s hedgehog.
Thanks for stopping in for a quick peek and don’t forget to check the other great designs at each site.
