Eureka- Winter Bear

For todays card, I decided to 
use the stamp Winter Bear. 
He's a cute little guy!
Actually, all of
 Eureka's stamps 
are cute!

I used a simple design for this card.
 I wanted to really spotlight the image.

I used one of my favorite techniques -
 coloring on colored paper.

I like to use Bazzil paper as it 
has some texture to it and that
 really helps to pop the colors out.

The word stamp is from QKR Stampede,
 a sister company to Eureka

Thanks for visiting today! 
I hope you got some inspiration
 while you were here!
See you soon!

Clearly Inspired Challenge #44 Pastels

Today's post is for 
Clearly Inspired Challenge #44
to use Pastel colors.

For my card I used the image
 God is Love from
 Clear Dollar stamps.

I found a very simple sketch online 
 used that as my layout.
The papers are from Memory Box and Darcies.

I hope you can play along with 
us in this fun challenge!

It's fun to play with pretty pastel colors
 in the middle of winter!

Check out the Clearly I Stamp blog 
for all the details!

I got this cute digi from 
Cornish Heritage Farms.

Bibilical Impressions- Saddle Bag

Hello Friends!
 Today is my first posting for
 Biblical Impressions for 2012! 
Glad you stopped by!

For my card today, I used the image
Saddle Bag # 37917.

This card is really a reach for me - 
I don't usually do things without color! 
I decided to shake things up a bit and
 do a monochromatic card. NO COLORING!
 Wow. For me - that's a first!
I am pleased with how the card turned out though -
 I think it goes well with the image!
I only used kraft paper and 
Brushed Corduroy Distress ink on this card. 
Thanks for stopping today! 
I hope to see you back here again!
