StampFairy Challenge - White with a Color Touch

Today's Ramblings: Well it is Monday again but I am okay with that as my boss is away for a few weeks. The mice will play!!!!

It's also Valentine's Day! I've never been a big Valentine's celebrator (is that a word?). I don't where a lot of jewelry and though I do LOVE flowers, to pay 4 times the amount on this special day seems kind of silly. I would much rather get $5 daisies any other day of the year *heehee*

With that being said, I got a brand new sewing machine for Valentine's Day!! Now I can do some stitching on cards as I love the look of zigzag stitching.

I also can't wait to share an idea I have been mulling over for the past half a year. As some of you may know I give my cards away, but I also sell a fair number too to my friends and family. Soon, once I have everything in place, I will be donating $1 from each card sold to an animal charity. I am SO excited and can't wait to get it all in place. I will keep you updated :) My husband "bought" the first card so I could give it to a friend today for her birthday - so I already have $1 set aside!

Today's DT Challenge:
The new theme at StampFairy Challenge is White with a Touch of one Color. Big challenge for me - I usually do the exact opposite and have always shied away from white color challenges.

With that being said...

I used Toby {found here} for my 2nd Christmas card of 2011:


This is as simple and colorless as I get - I think it turned out pretty good!

Card Ingredients:
StampFairy image; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; Copics; Gelly Roll white pen; Circle and Beaded Circle Nesties; Martha Stewart Crystal tinsel glitter; Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, Celebrate It ribbon; Dress It Up button; hemp twine.



I made Toby for the following challenges:

The End :)

For a colorful girl you sure did a fabulous job on this challenge Deanne! Love this but quite shocking to arrive your blog and see it. But then I scrolled down and saw your trademark colors! Super cute and i love the snowflake glitter on the snowball. The paper piecing is awesome too.

Lovely image. Great job on this card, I love the image and simplicity of it all. Thank you so much for joining us at DCD Christmas Club

Rosemary said...

If this card is any indication of your other cards, I think you will have lots of dollars to keep that first one company, what a lovely idea to donate it to charity!

This is so adorable - I love all the elements of it - your image and the glitter (btw, beautiful coloring), the texture, the sentiment, it all works perfectly together!
