Finally we are at the weekend :) I am looking forward to getting the chance to get crafty this weekend as it feels like it has been a very long week.....
However, I got some fantastic products this week from Create A Smile and I couldn't wait until the weekend to have a play with them:
I created a simple scene with the wonderful snowpeople from Cool Buddies, coloured with Chameleon Pens. The sky is created using the Swirly Stencil and Tumbled Glass distress ink. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. I will link up with the current challenge at Addicted to Stamps which is to 'make your mark'.
I played another of the fab stencils from Create A Smile on my next card:
I sponged Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry inks through the speech bubbles on this Say It stencil and used a Lawn Fawn speech bubble die. The sentiment is from Avery Elle and the cute little speech bubble is from Create A Smile's Perfect Tune. I will link up at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge where the theme is thanksgiving and at AAA Cards Challenge which has the same theme.
As you can tell, I am loving the designs from Create A Smile and I will have more of a play over the weekend. It is worth heading over to the blog for lots of great inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by :)
