StampFairy Challenge - Red, White, and Turquoise

Today's Ramblings: It's another Monday - if you live any where close to me, then you are "celebrating" Family Day. Family Day is the 3rd Monday of February that I guess you do just that: spend time with family and NOT go to work. Today I will be "spending time with family" by doing laundry and cleaning the house *heehee*

Cards {for} Critters, which is the name of my animal rescue charity drive, is almost organized. For every special card sold, I will give $1 (50 cents each) to two local rescue organizations:
SCAT Street Cat Rescue and New Hope Dog Rescue

I just have a few more things to get in order and hopefully will be giving to these great rescues very soon! I know it's not much, but every bit helps these poor little animals get a new lease on life.


Today's DT Challenge:
The new theme at StampFairy Challenge is Red, White, and Turquoise.

Last week we had such a great turnout - thanks for the support! Since it was so hard for the "judges" to pick a three for a Top 3, they gave it to EVERYONE! Congrats to all!

I just received my new Warm Grey Copics in the mail, so I am still getting used to them - must learn to shadow a bit less as it looks like he fell in some mud.
I used Lenny Winter aka Mud-Face {found here}:

Christmas card #4 of the year!!!
Card Ingredients:
StampFairy image; DCWV papers; Recollections cardstock; Copics; Gelly Roll white pen; Square and Beaded Circle Nesties; Martha Stewart Crystal tinsel glitter; Dress It Up buttons; Recollections gems.



I made Lenny for the following challenges:

Be sure to check out the rest of the cutie creations from the rest of the team.
Enjoy your day!

OMG Deanne I'm just crazy about this card! So stinking cute - it just makes my toes curl with delight looking at it. The gingham is fabulous (I just love gingham anyway) and to piece it on his nose and scarf just cracks me up. And the bling here is perfect. Gosh I could go on for five more paragraphs on this one I love it so much!
Hugs,
Sharon
